Lavender Street C.O.G.I.C. was formerly led by Elder Alfred Rhodes until his death. Mother Elma Daniel and a few others kept the church rolling on but had the desire for God to send them a Pastor.
Unity C.O.G.I.C. was formerly led by Elder Joe Allen until his death in December, 1995. Members of the Allen family kept the church rolling on as well, but they too had a desire for god to send them a Pastor.
Under the instructions of Bishop C.L. Bryant, Lavender Street COGIC and Unity COGIC were dissolved and Elder Terry A. Diamond Sr. was sent to to organize and develop a new ministry. As a result of extensive prayer and determination, in 1997, Abundance of Blessings C.O.G.I.C. was birthed out of the ministry of Elder Terry A. Diamond, Sr.
