Elder Wayne Henry

Elder Wayne Henry greets you in that wonderful, majestic and matchless name of Jesus Christ. It is my earnest desire to see individuals experience the life changing salvation, which was extended so graciously unto me and countless others that is freely offered to all who diligently seek and pursue God. Furthermore, it is my hope that all discover the riches of Jesus’ glory and the depth of His most profound love which can only be realized through developing and maintaining a personal intimate relationship with Him. Finally, remember Jesus loves you right where you are and is the only door that leads to eternal life. May God bless, smile upon and keep you in the center of His will. 


Minister Tim Griffin

Praise the Lord! I’m Minister Tim Griffin. Some refer to me as the “armor bearer”. I see my role as a minister to be that of a supporter. I am a family man and fully yield my support to my immediate family, church family, and pastor. Matthew 25:34 declares, “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. “ My desire is to bless and assist others, and to do that which my hands find to do in the Lord’s House. I pleasure in visiting the sick, checking on the elderly, and lending a helping hand to those less fortunate. This passion for service is what drives and motivates me to be the best for God I can be. I encourage all of you to commit your will and ways to the Lord and watch him work in your life.

Minister Flintchel Brown

Minister Flintchel Brown is a humble servant of the Lord who has a passion for the Word of God. GOD said in Matthew 11:30, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light. Take my yoke upon ye and learn of me.” In his role as Superintendent of Sunday School, it is in the Word of God that Minister Brown can be found meditating day and night; preparing for each Sunday School lesson. Through the working of the Holy Spirit, he is encouraged to help individuals learn God’s Word and its simplicity through everyday complexities. Yes, as Minister Brown’s favorite song declares, “God is my everything” and there is no problem too big for God to handle. Minister Brown’s favorite scripture is Psalm 133:1 “Behold how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”

Praise the Lord! Elder Leroy Bovian, Jr. greets in that adorable name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  He is the hope and joy of my life.  It is He that has made my days livable and manageable.  The Lord is continually blessing me in my walk with Him.  I adore him because he is making me into who he will have me to be…a man who has love for others and a burning desire to feel empathy and pray for the souls that are seeking to know the Lord.  I share the burdens of the saints and  cherish opportunities to minster to them. 

 I am blessed and grateful to be counted as one of the ministers sitting humbly at the feet of my pastor, Elder George Patten as he teaches the unadulterated Word of God.  It has been a joy to be a part of the True Believers Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  I look forward to the work I will do to support this great work…working with a team of committed and dedicated men of God to help our church grow and develop as kingdom builders.  This church stands true to it’s motto…True Believers a place where everyone is made to feel like somebody because Jesus Christ is in charge.  My ultimate desire is to witness to souls daily and encourage them to recognize Christ as their personal savior.
