Faith Christian Assembly History

How it all started...

Faith Christian Assembly traces its roots back to 1937. Rev. Cosimo Caruso began with street meetings and later, when the weather became cold, moved the meetings into the home of Mr. Joseph Gambino, Sr. in Ecorse. After 5 years, Joseph Gambino donates a plot of land on 12th street in Ecorse and a small church was constructed, The Italian Christian Church. In 1956, Rev. Caruso passed away and went to be with the Lord. Rev. Frank Gambino accepted the Pastorate and as the Lord continued to bless His people, they launched out to greater things. The Italian Christian Church later merged with Boulevard Christian Church of Detroit, and the chuches were renamed Faith Christian Assembly.

Expanding the vision...

Faith Christian Assembly grew and expanded into a new building in 1968 when Patrick J. Bossio Sr. of Mt. Vernon, NY was called to pastor Faith Christian Assembly Full Time and led until his retirement in 1997. In 1998, Patrick Bossio Jr. became Senior Pastor and led until 2010. By the grace of God the growth continued and the church found itself in yet another capacity predicament. In January of 2007, we moved into our newly renovated facility, rejoicing and praising God for the gift He has given us in having a building large enough to serve our community and our congregation. We have been able to enhance our ministry with more Christian education, plenty of room for fellowship and lots of space to grow in the future. Most of all, we are blessed by the fact that in 50+ years (as of 2021) we have never moved more than two blocks in any direction on Outer Drive. Rev. Frank Julian became Senior Pastor in 2010.

Where we are headed...

Following Rev. Frank Julian's retirement on January 20th, 2019, Rev. Raymond Bucciarelli responded to the calling he received from God and stepped into the role of Senior Pastor. A ceremony was held to honor Rev. Raymond Bucciarelli as Senior Pastor on Sunday, February 10th, 2019 by Presiding Bishop Doug Beacham of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. Since accepting his role as Senior Pastor, Pastor Ray has been dedicated to his vision of equipping our members to reach their homes, schools, workplaces and communities in new and exciting ways.

The power of Christian prayer Give me a stout heart
Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.
