What does a truly anointed man of God do before he and his church give away turkeys and then serves the community a free brunch? He has a conversation with God.

“I walked around the building and thanked God for the opportunity to be entrusted with this assignment. I told God that I don’t want to drop the ball on my end, and wanted to make sure we serve the community as we suppose to,” said Bishop Grosjean Stephens. 

Bishop Stephens has been the pastor at Cornerstone of Faith Ministries in Winston-Salem for 14 years. He’s shared that duty for the past five years with his wife of five years, Pastor Debra Terry-Stephens. 

This past Tuesday, Nov. 26, the Stephens and their church members gave the Belview community in Winston-Salem a Thanksgiving to remember. Over 50 families received a turkey and over 100 families enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving Brunch, complements of Cornerstone of Faith Ministries. 

“We did this last year as well, so we can stay connected before we move into our new church in the Belview community. When we have our grand opening, we don’t want to just pop up and they not have any interaction with our church members,” said Pastor Terry-Stephens. The Cornerstone of Faith Ministries Praise Team and Youth Choir showed up and showed out for the Belview community as well. 

“We truly enjoyed fellowshipping and engaging with the community. It’s very inspiring to see a lot of the same families each year. So many of them told us that they can’t wait for our new church to move into the Belview community because they feel the love every time we come around. They can feel our hearts,” said Pastor Terry-Stephens.

One young man was so impressed with the turkey giveaway and Thanksgiving Brunch that he offered to donate cases of chicken for their next event. “I love the way they connect with everyone and I see and appreciate the hard work that goes into putting these events together. So, I just want to do my part,” said the young man. 

Over the past five years, the church has given away over 500 book bags filled with school supplies, held a clothes and food drive, and had a fantastic Easter event. Whenever Cornerstone of Faith Ministries pulls up into the Belview community, the neighbors always come out to show their love and appreciation. It was extremely clear that they truly love their soon-to-be neighbors. 

The new church is coming in 2020 and will be located at 2315 Urban Street. Until then, feel free to visit Cornerstone of Faith Ministries this Sunday at 2430 Farrington Point Drive in Winston-Salem. Service begins at 11:00 a.m. sharp.
