Apostles Antwan and Nanette Chavis
The Chavises have an intimate knowledge of the damaging effects of substance abuse and violence—because they lived it and survived it. As a young man in Vietnam, Antwan became involved with drugs and continued its use after returning to the States. As a result of his lifestyle, Antwan was eventually arrested and charged with drugs and weapons possession. He was facing 35 years to life in prison, but through the intervention of God, he gave his life to Christ. After his sentence to five years' probation, of which he only had to serve one year because of the change in his life, he thanked God for the miracle of a second chance. He totally turned his life around, entered the ministry, and founded C.O.A.S.T. (community outreach and specialized training) in his endeavor to reach others who were still experiencing the effects of substance abuse. Nanette, who had also experienced the devastating effects of substance abuse, gave her life to Christ also and experienced His saving grace. She returned to school, receiving three degrees (an associates in marketing, an associates in applied science in human services, and a BA in Christian education). Nanette was ordained into the ministry in 1990, and together she and Antwan are committed to the ministry of changing lives. They have authored two books, "No More Limitations" and "Inspirational Quotations." They are in the process of writing their life story, which will be titled "Miracles in the Ghetto." This book is to inspire others that miracles can still happen today, and they can become that next miracle!

John and Sallye Glennen
Supernatural Life Group Leaders
John and Sallye Gleenen met in the 1970s in San Francisco as ordained by God. They married six months later and traveled East to visit Sallye's parents in NY in their hand-built RV. Their only glitch was that John was dynamically saved from his drug days and Sallye was not. Unequally yoked is a hard row to hoe, BUT GOD drew her by His lovingkindness. They landed back on the West Coast at the "Lighthouse Ranch," a Christian commune in Eureka, CA, and grew in the Lord together; eventually they embarked on an evangelistic team to go to Vancouver, BC, where they lived for six months and worked with a church in full-time ministry. Upon returning to Seattle, they were called to Oswego, NY, to help establish a church called Gospel Outreach. John was a street evangelist, playing his guitar and singing prophetically. They lived communally until they bought their own house in 1975, where they raised four children. Sallye was a mentor and "mother to many." In their church, Gospel Outreach, they led worship and were youth pastors during their children's teen years. Unfortunately, after the children were raised and out of the house John and Sallye hit some rough spots, BUT GOD prevailed and their marriage was restored. Sallye embarked on a "jail ministry" to women six years ago, and many lost souls have given their lives to Christ. John also had a prison ministry at Butler Prison for a few years that was very fruitful. They were installed as Evangelists through the Bridge Church and participated in supernatural evangelism that was taught from Bethel Church in Redding, CA. John has giftings in exhortation, the prophetic, and teaching. He also has a gift in fathering men in a one-on-one ministry through working together in his business. Sallye has lead Bible studies with women, "Beloved Unbelievers," weight loss groups, and teens, and she loves to teach the word of God. Her giftings are evangelism in any setting, hospitality, and teaching His word.
Presently they are refurbishing their Victorian home and moving back there to be able to do supernatural life groups and exercise more hospitality. The "attic" has been remolded into an "upper room" where they presently host two small groups: Gathering of Eagles, a retired couples' get-together, and another group that has people from all different churches meeting once a month for worship, prayer, and sharing. The love of God keeps them moving in their retirement years.
Supernatural Life Group Leader
Tracy Robinson has lived in the Syracuse, NY, area all her life. She grew up in the Cicero area as a child and lived in Manlius as a young adult. She currently lives in Liverpool. Tracy has an Executive Secretarial degree and a bachelor's degree (Major: Sociology/Minor: Education) from Syracuse University. She currently works at Lockheed-Martin in Procurement and loves sports! Volleyball and hiking have been her favorite activities. She is also a big-time SU men's football, basketball, and lacrosse fan. In addition, the NFL and Fantasy Football have sparked her interest for quite some time.
Tracy has a son who is a physical education teacher and a coach who lives in Georgia. He, too, loves sports. Tracy visited Believer's Chapel back in 1993 with a friend. That is when the Lord saved her. She loved the church and her pastor, Paul Wagner. Shortly, after receiving the Lord into her heart, she was water baptized.
Tracy began serving in several ministries, including the following:
Puppet Ministry, Clowning, Ushering, Women's Worship Team, Choir, Single's Ministry, Prayer Ministry and Children's Ministry.
Some of these ministries were for a short season, while others, such as Children's Ministry, lasted for at least ten years.
In addition, she was a life group leader for Celebrate Recovery and lead groups such as "Lord Heal My Hurts," "Boundaries," and "Give me 40 Days."
Tracy left Believer's Chapel a couple years back in search for "something else." She was not sure what the "something else" was. She had visited a couple of other churches and took part in a couple of the women's Bible studies. However, she still did not feel quite at home.
In the meantime, a dear friend, Pat Stone, continued to press her to come check out Fountain of Love Ministries. Tracy is now with Fountain of Love Ministries and is blessed to be a member of the church.
Tracy and Pat are looking forward to teaming up and leading the School of Supernatural Life Group.
