Apostle Leon Emerson, Senior Pastor

Leon Emerson, petitioning the Lord for His will concerning his life implored the Lord for clarity regarding the ministry calling upon his life. He was instructed to start Now Faith Christian Center Church (NFCCC). This would be a ministry with the mission to preach faith back into the hearts of men. Still employed with the Denver Fire Department, he shared his vision with his wife Pastor Yvonne Emerson, who fully supported his vision.

In obedience to the charge of God and walking by faith, Pastors Leon and Yvonne Emerson started their ministry in the basement of their home in the Park Hill neighborhood in Denver, Colorado in January 1983.

The ministry outgrew this location and God directed them to relocate to the Dahlia Shopping Center.  As membership continued to flourish, the ministry expanded to include the following ministries: sound and audio, usher board, music, women, youth, men and outreach.   With continued, rapid growth, Apostle Leon and Pastor Yvonne Emerson were faced with a larger congregation and insufficient space. Again, they asked God for direction concerning relocation.

In October 1985, NFCCC moved to a larger unit in the Dahlia Shopping Center, temporarily accommodating the tremendous growth.  At that time, Children’s Church and weekly Children’s Bible Study were established to meet the needs of the congregation.  Also, in 1985, The Excellent Name of Jesus radio outreach was created and the message of Faith was heard on KQXI, later on KDKO and currently on KLDC.  This has allowed Now Faith to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ  throughout the Denver metropolitan area and surrounding Colorado communities.

Pastor Emerson has also served as a voice in the community serving two terms as the President of the Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance, the oldest Civil Rights organization in the state of Colorado. 

In August 2017, Pastor Yvonne Emerson gained her heavenly reward. Her legacy lives on and her impact, guidance, and foundational principles for the Now Faith ministry will never be forgotten. Through the grace of God, as NFCCC continues to expand, and to Preach Faith. Apostle Emerson will continue the vision that God gave him 35 years ago.

Kenny Greene, Executive Pastor

Pastor Kenny Greene began his ministry development and growth in 1991 as a young man serving at the Now Faith Christian Center Church, located in Denver, Colorado, under the great Apostolic/Pastoral leadership of Apostle Leon Emerson and Pastor Yvonne Emerson.

Pastor Kenny began serving in the Youth Ministry as a volunteer and quickly developed and progressed to a youth leader. After serving as a youth leader, Pastor Kenny was elevated to the office of a Deacon. As he proved his faithfulness to the ministry in serving in both areas, he again was elevated to the office of a Minister in the Church.

While serving faithfully in these ministry roles, Pastor Greene was once again elevated to the office of an Elder of the Church and served in that role faithfully for many years.

In 2004, Pastor Greene received the call of God to go out and begin a Church. After discussing and praying about the call with Apostle Emerson, Pastor Greene accepted the call of God to begin a Church. CornerStone Christian Church began its first service on November 2, 2004 at Rolling Hills Elementary School in Aurora, Colorado.

After many years of pastoring, serving, learning, and developing as the Pastor of CornerStone Christian Church, God spoke to Pastor Greene to return to Now Faith Christian Center Church to help and support Apostle Emerson and Pastor Yvonne. Pastor Kenny was obedient to the voice of God and now serves as the Executive Pastor of Now Faith Christian Center Church.
