ABOUT OUR MINISTRY
Overcomers Fellowship is under the Spirit Fire ministries which was founded on November 22, 2015 in the living room of Apostle Roscoe Dabney III and Prophet Sarah Dabney. As the ministry grew, the fellowship moved into Rim Country Health's meeting room. When COVID struck, like so many other ministries, Overcomers Fellowship was forced to close the meeting room's doors, but God had a plan! Every Sunday until the end of June 2020 Overcomers Fellowship met in the safety of the beautiful outdoors of Payson, AZ. Then, in June 2020 God graciously opened the doors to our new fellowship home located at 1000 N. Easy Street surrounded by the beautiful White Mountains in Payson, AZ.

Steadfast and immovable
The Overcomers' Vision:
Our vision is taken directly from the Book of Acts. We regard the Book of Acts and The Church at Smyrna (Rev. 2:8) as God's blueprint for HIS new testament fellowship.
We envision providing a full service ministry to the world community, as the Lord leads.
"I PLEDGE TO GOD (ADONAI ELOHIYM) TO ALWAYS REMAIN STEADFAST, UNMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD JESUS"
APOSTLE ROSCOE DABNEY III
January 1983, Roscoe awoke at 3 a.m. and began reading a book "The Spiritual Man by Watchman Nee". After reading a chapter illustrating the crucifixion of Jesus, he began to weep uncontrollably, headed to bathroom, looked himself in the eye in the mirror, confessed his sins and asked Jesus to come into his life. From that moment, he was instantly "delivered" from 15 years of drug addiction (with no relapses), alcoholism and sexual lust. Roscoe also renounced his membership in the Black Panther Party.

Their focus is to support the local leaders functioning in ministry to the community.
