Our Pastors

Senior Pastor Bim Rowley (Email)

While working as a professional engineer, the Lord began to make it clear that He had another direction for our pastor and his wife Deanna.  After graduating from seminary, and after much prayer to determine God’s will and direction, it seemed that God focused the attention of the Rowleys on the East Hartford / South Windsor area.

After knocking on over 10,000 doors, the church was launched on June 29, 1980, with an attendance of six people and one dog besides four Rowleys. From that day until the present time, the Lord has helped the church grow numerically and spiritually. The Rowleys have five children, all of whom are married and serving the Lord.

The Lord has graciously supplied the needs enabling the members of the church to build the current facilities debt free. All praise for these accomplishments must flow to Jesus Christ who alone is preeminent.  The goal of our church is embodied in the motto: Preaching the Truth with Love.  Where God’s word is honored and accurately taught, we have found that God works in the lives of people.
