Rudolph Bolling - Senior Pastor
Stephanie Bolling - Co-Pastor
Pastor Rudolph and Stephanie Bolling love The Lord. They have been in ministry together since 1987. They began in the cleaning ministry at Church of Acts, Brooklyn N.Y. and were promoted to Worship Leaders, and Children's Choir Directors. They have served and recorded with the Grammy award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, while leading an outreach ministry for four years called Psalms Music Ministry, where they lead a team into the prisons, shelters, and nursing homes. They were often requested to bring their ministry of exhortation to churches that was spiritually dying. They were blessed to go out from the Brooklyn Tabernacle to aid in a new church extension in Shawnee, PA in 1995 where Rudy served as a deacon and became Ordained as a Pastor with the Independent Assemblies of God in 1998 and served as Associate Pastor for five years. The Bollings have held their positions there as Administrators, music Directors of Adult and Children choirs, worship teams, praise bands and Youth Ministry. They also served as worship leaders.
Rudy and Stephanie founded and organized another street ministry; The United Coalition of Musicians for Christ. They were led to take their ministry to the streets once again. They ministered in the parks and churches in the inner cities throughout the United States bringing the word with music, drama, dance, and step teams. When they were not on the road ministering, they would plug into a Church in Pocono Summit Pa in 2003, where Rudy acquired his credentials and became an Ordained Minister with the General Council Assemblies of God in 2005 and Stephanie a worship leader.
Rudy served as Associate Pastor in charge of ministry development, weekend ministries, hospitality, and special events and covered more than 15 ministries. Together Rudy and Stephanie were privileged to lead a team to Mexico and to New Orleans to aid the Katrina victims, and to minister a word of hope to the hopeless. The couple also served together in counseling married couples and family counseling. Rudy and Stephanie both served as Pastoral Care Pastors to the sick and shut-ins. They also headed up the Celebrate Recovery Ministry created by Rick Warren from Saddle Back Church.
They have ministered in Madison Square Garden, Trinidad, Disney, Moody Bible Institute, and Bolivia and have appeared on local television and radio in the Pocono Mountain area. While living in the Pocono’s the Bollings have frequently ministered in song, they have preached the word at Men’s' and Women’s' fellowships, youth rallies and many churches along the east coast. The Bollings have now been blessed in 2008 to start a church plant of their own in the Newfoundland area of Pennsylvania.
