We are ordinary people with a call from God to pastor the flock of Solid Foundation Bible Church. From Flint, Michigan, Pastor Marcellus Dukes and his lovely wife Co-Pastor Shunta Dukes, were lead by the Spirit of God over ten years ago to move to Arizona. Prior to sending them out, Pastor Dukes and his wife enjoyed ministry at International Gospel Center located in Flint, Michigan, founded by the late Charles O. Miles of Ecorse, Michigan. Under the leadership of current Pastor Marvin Miles and former Pastor John Thomas, they joyously ministered to the youth, worked with the outreach team and put their hands to the plow.
Pastor Dukes and his wife traveled to several states ministering through stage plays written by Pastor Marvin Miles. While ministry couldn’t be better, the Lord spoke to Pastor Dukes to go to a land that He would show him. “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee.” (Genesis 12:1) Pastor Dukes being obedient to the Spirit of God and his wife being submissive to him, immediately went on this journey by faith to Arizona, which the Lord had shown them. God only held what was in store for them and they soon would discover.
After Pastor Dukes completed Seminary with his Bachelor in Biblical Studies and had been ordained by his most beloved former Pastor, John Thomas. The Lord began to confront his heart concerning why He (God) had guided them here. Pastor and Co-Pastor Dukes were shown a vision six years earlier while in Michigan, Solid Foundation Bible Church. This is what the Lord has manifested and was founded in 2005. Since then the ministry has grown from three people to over a hundred and counting. God has favored them with an anointing for the wounded and brokenhearted, to teach the infallible Word of God and love as Christ loved. Currently Pastor and Co-Pastor Dukes persistently pursue their educational goals of attaining their Masters of Divinity with a focus on Pastoral Leadership.
