Our Senior Pastor, BISHOP MICHAEL D. DENSMORE
For more than thirty years, Apostle Michael Densmore has been impacting the nation
through the Word of God. His ministry spans from humble beginnings as a young minister
in his hometown of Gadsden, Alabama to his divine assignment in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Presently, he serves as the founder and Senior Pastor of Community Temple, a thriving
ministry in the northeastern region that has been chosen to be “The Place Where the
Hurting are Healed and the Hungry are Fed!” In addition to his role at Community Temple, Apostle Densmore serves as Chief Prelate and Presiding Bishop of Community Churches
of God, Incorporated. This reformation currently serves over 20 covenant ministries and extends throughout the eastern seaboard. Through his dynamic leadership, both Community Temple and Community Churches of God continue to experience exponential growth, both spiritually and numerically.
Apostle Densmore was reaffirmed as an Apostle and consecrated to the office of Bishop in the Lord’s church by his spiritual father, the late Apostle Robert Evans, Jr. By God’s sovereign providence, Apostle Densmore has now joyfully accepted his assignment as an Apostolic Father to the New England region and beyond. With this mantle, he imparts into the lives of senior pastors and leaders through leadership summits and seminars hosted by Bishop Michael Densmore Ministries. God has placed a seasoned Word in his spirit that has been birthed into two books: “Flow with Flow: Moving with God,” and “Where are the Sons and Daughters of Ministry?”
It is the mission of this servant of God to see God’s Kingdom manifested in the earth realm with signs, wonders and miracles that will transform lives, cross ethnic, cultural and social barriers, and break the bands of tradition that have held the Body of Christ captive. Being a student of the Word, he studied at the Community Tabernacle School of Ministry (an affiliate of Vision University of New York), where he received an accredited Bachelor’s degree in Theology. Prior to his call to full-time ministry, he was highly esteemed in the medical field as a registered nurse, and continues to be to present day.
Apostle Densmore is blessed to share in life, love and ministry with his wife and pastoral partner, Lady Stacey Densmore. Together, they are the exceptional parents of four adult children and proud grandparents of three.
Elder Stacey T. Densmore is the "First Lady" of Community Temple, where her husband, Bishop Michael D. Densmore is the Senior Pastor.
There, Elder Densmore provides organizational support and assists him in his additional role as Chief Prelate of the Community Churches of
God, Incorporated. Through this reformation, Elder Densmore was ordained an Evangelist in 1995 and elevated to the office of an Elder in 1996.
With a humble and dedicated spirit, Elder Densmore constantly strives to do the work of the Lord, and has moved passed the boundaries of
the average "First Lady" becoming to many, a spiritual mother, sister and friend. Always willing to give sound spiritual advice, a shoulder to cry
on and an ear to listen, she has taken on the nickname, "Mother."
She has a great yearning to see God’s people, especially His daughters free - spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. This passion has led her to establish several fellowships designed to meet the holistic needs of today’s woman, which include:
•The Women’s Ministry of Community Temple, where she serves as Servant Leader
•Christian Women United for Spiritual Growth seminars, retreats and fellowships and
•The annual W.O.R.T.H. (Women of Royalty, Truth & Honor) Conference.
Elder Densmore takes great pride in her family and is a proud mother, mother-in-law and "Ma D" to her three grandchildren. So many great things have transpired thus far, and as Elder Densmore is known to often say, "To GOD be the glory!" To be continued...THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
