Known today as a ministry with a strong emphasis on the Word, Worship, and Missions, New Creation Christian Fellowship (NCCF) began as a prayer group at the home of Alfred and Pearlene Conyers in November of 1984. The power of God began to move mightily and confirmed the faith of those praying for spiritual renewal in the city of San Antonio.


Under the leadership of Rev. David and Rev. Claudette A. Copeland, who at that time were serving as the first African-American Chaplain couple in the U.S. military, NCCF was officially incorporated in the state of Texas on March 5, 1985.


Their first public meeting was held at what was Wyatt’s Cafeteria on April 25, 1985 and continued as a midweek service. Later that year, the church began holding Sunday morning worship services at what was the La Mansion del Norte in September 1985. NCCF then moved to 12525 Nacogdoches in October of that same year. The business affairs of the church were conducted by the organizing board until the Copelands were released from the military chaplaincy to assume the Pastorate of New Creation Christian Fellowship on September 1, 1985.

The congregation grew for fifteen years at the Nacogdoches Road location. On January 2000, under the progressive leadership of Bishop David and Dr. Copeland, NCCF acquired a 2,500 seat Cathedral located at 8700 Fourwinds Drive in Windcrest, Texas where they worship and serve together today.
