A Partner to Know: Love Fellowship Christian Center!
Love Fellowship Christian Center is in Adamsville and has partnered with CSM for over three years. Pastor Rodney Stanfield’s vision for the Love Fellowship congregation is to “build and develop a kingdom of empowered people whose lives have been transformed into the image and likeness of Christ.” Pastor Stanfield’s excitement for life and love for the Lord is contagious. You can often hear him laughing as he loads resources from CSM into volunteers’ cars to head back to the church and distribute. And he is the ultimate “hype man” when we are packing boxes with food, challenging volunteers and staff to get to a much larger number than planned! The church regularly partners with Covenant Presbyterian, and the congregations enjoy serving together. They have participated together in Back to School, Thanksgiving, and Christmas events. Pastor Standfield works weekly with First Priority with Minor Middle and High School.
CSM plays a significant role in partnering churches together. Tracy, our executive director, will meet with each church individually and then discern what churches will work well together. The pastors and congregations usually meet, pray, and serve together – at CSM and elsewhere in the community. Recently, Pastor Rodney went through a challenging health journey, and Covenant Pres was there as prayer and emotional support.
