Pastor Graham Chancey2SENIOR PASTOR,  Rev. Graham Chancey 
 

Thank you so much for taking some time to stop by and check out our website. I hope you will find out all you need to know about GSCOG and feel led to join our growing church family.  

My name is Graham Chancey and I married Melody, an amazing woman, in Dec. of 1999.  Macy and McKenna are our two daughters and they have filled our lives with great joy.

I grew up in the Church of God but never committed my life to Christ until Sept. of 1998.  Just a couple of years later, I went into full-time ministry as a youth pastor.  I spent 5 years in that capacity before moving into a Senior Pastor position.

My family and I spent 7 great years in Bradenton, Fl. where we experienced a great revival that lead to a 700% increase in church attendance.  

In July 2014, the Lord led us to take the position as Senior Pastor of Good Shepherd Church of God.  Once again we are experiencing a revival and new souls are being added to the church.

I am a classical Pentecostal preacher who totally depends on the leading of the Holy Spirit.  I firmly believe that a minister must do all that he is able to prepare himself for ministry but the anointing of God takes priority over all preparation.

I believe in implementing methods and programs to give the church organization but all of these are done in vain without the demonstration of the power of God.  I invite you to come and experience Pentecost with us.

Good Shepherd Church of God is a group of diverse people who are Moving Forward Together, To Reap the Harvest.

You are more than welcome to come and be a part of what God is doing in the Glades.  I hope to see you soon!

 
YOUTH/CHILDREN’S PASTOR  
Pastor Anthony Brewer
Pastor Anthony

My name is Anthony Brewer and I was born at Palms West Hospital in Loxahatchee, FL. I grew up in Pahokee, FL, where I spent the first 18 years of my life under the care of my loving family. I completed my primary and secondary education at The Shepherd’s School from where I also graduated high school in 2009. 

After completing high school, I moved to Cleveland, TN to attend Lee University. During my time at Lee, I had the opportunity to serve as Floor Leader where I was able to lead my fellow dorm mates into challenging conversations and create an environment that was empowering. With this opportunity I was able to spring board into my ministry. I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Pastoral Ministry from Lee University. During my time as a college student, I met my wonderful wife, Ami Brewer, and in July of 2013 we married. Ami also graduated from Lee University in 2013 with a degree in Psychology. In October of 2014, we had a beautiful baby boy named Alexander James. In April of 2017,  we were blessed with our baby girl Addison Joy.  Ami and I are both teaching high school classes at The Shepherd’s School. 

I am passionate about the youth of our community and have committed myself to preaching, teaching, and fostering relationships with the next generation. I have followed God from a young age and I am overjoyed that God has brought me back to Pahokee to help change the direction of the youth today. I have been working in full-time ministry since I graduated in 2013.

I began working at the Florida Youth Ranch for boys. I ministered there for close to a year. From there I went on to work as a youth Pastor in Archer, Florida.  I ministered there until December of 2015 which was when I accepted a position as Youth Pastor at Good Shepherd Church of God in Pahokee, Fl.  I began my ministry at Good Shepherd in January of 2016.

As a team, Ami and I work together at GSCOG as we lead the JAM City program on Wednesday Nights, Youth Night every other Friday, and Children’s Church on Sunday Morning.
 
We invite you to join us for Children’s Church every Sunday at 10:45 am and JAM City every Wednesday at 7:00 pm.
 
ASSISTANT PASTOR TO THE SPANISH SPEAKERS
Pastor Samuel Colon

 

My name is Samuel Colón.  I was born in Villalba, Puerto Rico.  My parents accepted the Lord as their savior when I was three years old.  At the age of five, my parents moved to Manatí.  There in Manatí is where we began to attend the Church of God.  My father passed away when I was fifteen years old.  Some of my brothers were already living in Chicago, Illinois.  My mother then decided to move to Chicago when I was sixteen years old.  There was not a Spanish Church of God so a group that had moved to Chicago from our church in Puerto Rico, including some of my wife’s siblings, had the vision to start a Spanish Church.  They did fufill their vision and that church was the beginning of many churches in the Chicago Metro Area and in some of the suburbs. 

 

On June 25, 1960 I got married to my wonderful wife Loyda.  We were blessed with five sons and one daughter.  Our children are Gamaliel, Eliseo, Samuel Jr., Awilda Iris, Lemuel and Melvin.  I praise God because they are all serving the Lord and doing Kingdom work. 

 

I studied and taught the Word of God in Chicago and was involved in different ministries and teaching the Word. I have also worked with the youth and as a Pastor while living in Puerto Rico.  My wife and I were founders of the first Church of God in Villalba, Puerto Rico, which is my hometown.  The church there is still going strong.  In 1996, we moved from Puerto Rico to Miami, Florida.  We moved there with the desire to start a Spanish outreach ministry somewhere in the Miami area.  God closed all of the doors and He sent us to Pahokee, Florida.  God had a different plan for our lives, and I was appointed as visiting pastor at the Good Shepherd Church of God in Pahokee, Florida.  In 1998, my wife and I were named local Missions Representatives.  God has taken us to places we never dreamed of through this ministry and we continue to do what He has called us to do.  

 
I invite you all to join my Sunday School Class, that is taught in Spanish, on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am.  Our church services at 10:45 are also translated to Spanish, live, by my wife Loyda.
