Who We Are

Our History

Elder Boswell realized that the establishment of a church is a lofty endeavor that will require a lifetime commitment to excellence and abiding in God’s Word. After much prayer and careful consideration of the responsibilities required seen and unseen including the difficulties that may arise Boswell moved forward to share with his wife, Carolyn Boswell, the Vision to begin the work that God had impressed as an imprimatur upon his heart years earlier.

Shortly afterward, Boswell shared with the COGIC Huntsville District Superintendent and his current pastor Supt. Dr. Terrell Harris, Jr. his idea, including the name that God had given him (Berea Church of God in Christ). Dr. Harris agreed to the idea and gave helpful advice in efforts to move ahead gracefully unto the development of a new mission within the Huntsville District. The Pastor’s vision was presented to the Church of God in Christ, Alabama 1st Jurisdictional Prelate of the who agreed to the Pastor’s vision, with high regard for the name chosen. The location chosen was in Rogersville, Lauderdale County, AL. The Initial Service was on Sunday, September 19, 2021, at 10:30 am.

Aspire to Love Others Like God Love us.

The name Berea was birthed in my spirit in 2004. Circumstances emerged from God’s hand to permit this ministry to come into being in 2021. We serve God in Rogersville AL with a sincere and cordial spirit that aligns with the temperament of the Bereans (Acts 17) with great expectations for growth in ministry.
We implement Biblical Counseling and encourage any that would come to join us in worshiping the Lord. God has prepared us to spread the gospel and encourage others to live a life devoted to God.


These two together are a dynamic duo. The saint are supposed to looks up. When we look up, we see Mercy and Faith. THE UNFAITHFUL AND MERCILESS Not reciprocating the mercy shown to you towards others. Causes Sociopathic behaviors and psychotic tendencies Professing to be wise. God is a spirit. And those that abide in love resonate with weightier matters such as Mercy and Faith. The Divine Law of Love is not entered by many who disqualify themselves because they step out of bounds. These become pathetic due to a lack of mercy.
