Bernard Grant

Bernard Grant

Pastor/Founder

A native of the inner city of Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Bernard Grant gave his heart to Christ at the age of 15, and responded to the call of ministry at the age of 17. He graduated with honors from NC A&T State University in 1986. He received his Doctrine of Ministry from Friends Christian University in January 2000.
Dr. Grant helps to usher in a refreshing breeze of the Holy Spirit in a world that is divided, even fragmented by political, social, ethnic, and religious hostility. He seeks to keeps unity as he pastors a non-denominational church where the Word is used to teach about Faith, Family and Finances.
Dr. Grant founded Showers of Blessing Christian Center in November 1989. The ministry started with just 5 members at the YWCA. Another facility was soon found at 406 Cokey Road in the city of Rocky Mount, NC, that would seat more people. In just a few years it was full to capacity. And in 4 1/2 years later the mortgage was burned, Paid In Full.
In March 2003, Dr. Bernard Grant moved his congregation into a much larger facility that seats over 1000 people. Showers of Blessing Christian Center is a Bible Centered, Family Oriented Church that seeks to meet the whole needs of man; spirit, soul and body.
Dr. Grant had the vision to open a school of higher learning. Today the ministry has a Child Development Center with children ages 0-5. We are Transferring Christian Values to the Next Generation.
