She is currently a member of Monument of Faith Evangelistic Church under the leadership of Pastor Mark A. Henton. She has been with this ministry for over thirty seven years.

Dr. Shearrill is anointed to teach God’s word. She believes in the commission of our Lord and  Savior Jesus Christ “go ye into all the world and preach the gospel…,” but she also adheres to the promise of Christ, that He would leave us a comforter, which is the Holy Ghost…It is in this great commission that she is lead by the directing of the Holy Ghost in visions; and as Angelic Angels are present in the miracle crusades and during the anointed services. The Holy Ghost leads her as many miracle healings of all sorts occur within the services. It is her tremendous burden for the lost which consistently compels her to endlessly take on the commission of “Reaching the World for Christ.” Dr. Shearrill is known for her consistent but fervent “reliance upon the Holy Ghost” during each service and respectfully, a “life of prayer and humble submission” to God and the services of His people.

Armed with the Word of God and the encouragement of her pastor, Chief Apostle, Dr. Richard D.

Pastor Stephen & Prophetess Shaundra Bowen

Elder Stephen L. Bowen

Stephen L. Bowen was born in 1962 in the city of Chicago and is the 5th child out of 6 to the parents of Lucille Bowen and Madison Bowen.

He has deep roots in the Church Of God In Christ in which his parents and grandparents (Pastor James Bolden and Rosie Lee Bolden) were faithful members as well as ardent and dedicated supporters in the ministry and the founders of the New Jerusalem C.O.G.I.C.

As a child, he was taught the precepts of holiness in which he never strayed because of the fear of God that was heavily inculcated in him through biblical teachings, prayer, fasting, and constant church attendance impressed on him by his parents, grandparents, aunties, and uncles involved in the ministry.

Being active in all aspects of church and ministry, his first calling was in the music department at the age of 8 years old.  A prophet prophesied that he would play the piano/organ.  Immediately after that service, he was told to play a song on the organ and was shocked at how he figured out the perfect melody without never previously playing it before.

At the age of 15, he began a deeper interest and worked closely with his mother with the New Jerusalem choir.  Being impressed with his ability to give parts and teach songs, in 1981, Lucille Bowen made him her assistant and upon her death in 1987, he became the Minister of Music at the New Jerusalem C.O.G.I.C.  In the early 80s, Stephen L. Bowen wrote and recorded his first Song “He’s Every Thing To Me” on Elder Curtis Rogers’ State Sunday School Album.

In 2001, he received an ‘Elijah/Elisha’ type calling to preach the Gospel. Stephen L. Bowen once again struggled with the feelings of resistance to such a serious and heavy calling. He prayed feverishly with a prayer group for a direct answer.  The following Sunday, at a visiting church a Prophetess and Prophet (who did not know of the struggle within him to answer this calling) singled him out, spun him around, anointed him, prayed for him and declared: “YES, GOD SAID HE CHOSE YOU!  THIS SERVICE IS FOR YOU!” With tears, he accepted. The following year on August 2002, he was ordained in the Northern Illinois Jurisdiction by Bishop Cody V. Marshall.

His many years of faithful tutorship, service, and dedication in all facets at his local church, has positioned him as New Jerusalem C.O.G.I.C. Trustee, Weekly Bible Study Teacher, local church Minister of Music, Assistant Pastor; and on October 1, 2017 was appointed Pastor.

Because of his years of professional background in the publishing industry and a keen interest in biblical, spiritual, and personal enhancement he published his first book in July 2013 — Dealing With Anger From A Natural and Spiritual Perspective. The inspiration in writing this book came from a bible class he taught on anger at his local church for almost 2 years. After gathering research, he was impressed to publish a unique approach to dealing with anger.

Stephen Lamonte Bowen currently holds an Associates Degree from Harold Washington Community College, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Roosevelt University.  He is the proud husband for 34 years to Prophetess Shaundra Latrease Bowen and the father of Shaunita Latrease Montout {Carnot}; Sophill Leonell Butler {Alphonus}; and Symphonie Lena.

As God open doors for him, he solicits your prayers for God’s strength and direction.


Prophetess Shaundra Latrease Bowen is save, sanctified & filled with the Holy Ghost & fire. She’s a dedicated and supportive member of New Jerusalem C.O.G.I.C. under the leadership of her husband, Pastor Stephen L. Bowen.  Prophetess Shaundra L. Bowen is a devoted, loving and faithful wife for thirty-four years to Pastor Stephen Lamonte and the proud mother of three daughters: Shaunita Latrease {Carnot Montout}; Sophill Leonell {Alphonso Butler}; and Symphonie Lena Bowen.


Prophetess Shaundra L. Bowen got saved at an old fashion Revival on Friday, July 20, 1977 and filled with the Holy Ghost on Sunday, July 22, 1977, under the leadership of the late Dr. Moses Cross, Sr., Cross Temple COGIC.  She has served and helped many ministries through the gifts that God’s have given her.  She received her Evangelist license in 1995 under the leadership of Pastor J. McCoy, New Covenant Tabernacle Church.  In 2005, the Lord called her up to another level in the ministry as a Prophetess.  Through many hard trials; disappointing situations she can truly said that by the help and grace of God she’s come along way.  On Sunday, October 1, 2017 the Lord has bestowed her with the honor of being the First Lady of New Jerusalem COGIC.


She served as the Pastor’s personal Executive Administrator, Chairperson of the Women’s Department, ardent worker in the Outreach Ministry, Assistant Church Announcer, Coordinator, Intercessor Ministry, Beautification Committee, just to name a few.   Whatever her hands find to do, it’s done with humbleness, joy, and dignity.  Prophetess Shaundra L. Bowen operates in her gift humbly, faithfully and gratefully.  She is a great asset and blessing to the New Jerusalem family and the body of Christ as a whole.


She also serves as the District Purity Chairlady for the Greater South Shore District, under the leadership of Superintendent Pastor Eugene Fears, Jr.; Evangelist Anna M. Kyles, District Missionary and Bishop Cody V. Marshall, Prelate of the Northern Illinois Jurisdiction.


She has inspired and encouraged a lot of people through her ministry.  Her main goal is to please the Lord and allow him to move and have his way in her life.  She continually strives to build the kingdom of God in many God-given inspirational ways.  Her motto is “Pulling down the walls of Satan & Take the KEYS God has given you.”
