Our Story

In 2000, at the beginning of our ministry, we embraced the simple mandate to love people and serve them the life-changing Word of God. This remains at the heart of everything we do. We consider service to be a privilege and we are dedicated to serving at the highest level.

Jerome L. Lewis

Pastor, Seeds Church

Pastor Jerome L. Lewis’s passion for people and seeing them live a full, God-powered life ignites everything he does. From teaching and preaching to singing and moving mightily in the gifts of the Spirit.


In 1983, he married his best friend Lisa Pierce - affectionately known to him as ‘Pearl’. Together, they served as Youth Pastors for 14 years at Christian Life Center (CLC) in Pennsville, New Jersey. Pastor Jerome also served as an Associate Pastor at CLC for 17 years–preaching and teaching, performing weddings, visiting the sick, providing counseling services for members of the congregation, and other related duties.


In 2000 and led by the Holy Spirit. Pastor Jerome and his wife established Seeds of Greatness Ministries, Inc. in New Castle, Delaware.  Seeds Church, is a thriving church, founded on a vision mandated by God to build strong Christian families and develop leaders. The church averages 1,500 people in attendance each Sunday at their new campus, which includes a 1,400 seat sanctuary, youth center, fellowship hall and more. Undoubtedly, the success of the church is in large part accredited to the dynamic, consistent teaching of the Word of God that transforms lives.
