Bernice accepted the Lord as Savior when she was young, and she loves the Lord deeply with all of her heart.
Bernice moved to Lacota, Michigan in 1968 from Chicago IL. She now resides in Pullman, MI, with Edgar, her husband of 46 years. They have two sons and daughters-in-laws: Mark and Angie, and Eric and Theresa. Over the years God has blessed Bernice and Edgar with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well.
When she first moved to Michigan, Bernice joined Kibbie Community Church under the leadership of Rev. Mary Roland. Her life had taken her through many changes and to different churches, but she always said that God showed her what to do and what not to do.
After many years she returned to her roots at Kibbie Community Church, and served from the Usher board to the Sunday School Superintendent. Then in 1999 she received her call to the ministry. She understudied under the Senior Pastor for three years. In 2001, she became Minister to the Women, and in 2002 she was ordained to the office of Assistant Pastor.
In 2005, God called her and 12 others to start a new ministry; which today is known as Greater Faith Community Church. She has been Pastor of Greater Faith Community Church ever since.
Pastor Bernice Thomas has a vision for Greater Faith Community Church, to make disciples that Love the People, Live the Word, and Teach the Word.
