History

In the year 1980 Bishop Melvin Best was called by the Lord to spearhead a work for the Kingdom. He established a church in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn which is today known as The Grassroot Ministry Inc.

The Grassroot Ministry, Inc. objectives were and still are to full fill the great commission, win souls to the Lord Jesus and educate believers. To attain these goals, house meetings were planned on every other Saturday evening. The Doctrine of Salvation was the first lesson taught, then Personal Evangelism. At the end of the Personal Evangelism course, the stage was set to win souls for the Lord and the Lord added to the church such as should be saved.

Over the years, Bishop Melvin Best has been faithful to the work that the Lord has entrusted to him. Through diligence, he has proven himself to be truly “a workman that needs not be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth”. One of his greatest desires is to motivate the saints to become more knowledgeable in the word and work of God and to this end he preaches and teaches fervently.

As a leader, Bishop Best yields to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He does not buckle to popular trends and doctrines but cleaves to the meat of the word. He endeavors to maintain a balance among the spiritual, administrative and social areas in the church. Bishop Best is cognizant of the necessity to respect and support the veterans of the faith. One of his most admirable qualities is the Gift of Giving. Many have testified of his compassion, kindness and generosity towards them in their time of need

As the new millennium began, The Grassroot Ministry changed and grew broader and wider, taking in, a large vision for evangelism at home and missions’ aboard.

*At the close of the year 2002 the massive campaign that was started in the year 2000 to refurbish our current house of worship to accommodate all the new things that the Lord was doing among us was on its course. There were many problems to overcome but one by one we got the victory and over came them.

*At the close of the year 2003 the massive refurbishing campaign was completed, our house of worship was renovated, the church’s back office was upgraded and we venture into the multimedia world. This new venture was design to merge technology and the church with the ultimate goal of slowing down the appearing of the anti Christ.

*At the close of the year 2004 the multimedia ministry was presented to the church world as the new medium for evangelism and the educating of believers. The Spirit Station was started with great success, the computer school and after school programs got off the ground with great enthusiasm.

*From 2005-2011 the ministry focus strongly on Evanglishm.  The evanglistic method we used was Prayer Table, the computer school and our after school programs.  Through the prayer table, many souls have been saved and baptised in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  The Computer School were able to graduate over 10,000 students since the beginning of the school.  We continue to have a waiting list for incoming students, and we are using the opportunity not only to advance our students in the computer field but most importantly for helping them develop a closer relationship with the Lord.

*In 2012 we were presented with the opportunity to evangelize via the radio.  You are invited to listen to ministry on 88.7 Sundays from 10:00 am to 12:00 as we preach and teach the Word of God. 

A lot of work was done for the Lord but a lot remains to be done so we solicit your prayer and financial gifts in the name of the Lord. God Bless.
