In 1982, Community church members were blessed with the edifice they occupy today at 2249 N. Sherman Blvd. Rev. Roy B. Nabors retired from Community on January 1, 2009. However, before retiring, Rev. Nabors selected Rev. Demetrius K. Williams and trained him for two years. And on January 2, 2009, Rev. Williams was named the second pastor in the church’s history. Rev.
