 Prophetic Ministry

Apostle/Prophet Eric Von Copeland has been in ministry for over thirty years. When he received Jesus as his Savior at the age of seventeen, his life was forever changed. After graduating from State Teacher's College Campus School, he continued his education at the State University of New York - Buffalo, Bishop Mason Seminary, Trinity Bible College . He served as Assistant Pastor of Mount Calvary Holy Church of America Inc., and Pastor of New Christian Praise Center both in Buffalo, New York. Pastor Copeland also served as Chaplain within the Attica State Prison Ministry and Buffalo Bills Professional Football Team. Then, God had a new thing in mind...

The Spirit led Pastor Copeland to the mighty state of Texas where he served as Chaplain with the Bexar County Sheriff's Department. Later, he went on to establish Oasis Ministries in San Antonio, Texas and served on the Board of Elders of the Interdenominational Church of God of America based in Long Beach, CA under the leadership of Bishop Leon D. Ralph. In this capacity, Pastor Copeland oversaw several Churchs, Breath of Life Fellowship Church in Austin, TX under Apostle Robert Alexander Jr.. and The Safehouse Church in Hallettsville, TX under Pastor Lamarr Davenport.Also Prophet Alberto Deleon from Buffalo,NY Travels with Apostle/Prophet Copeland with the Apostolic Team.

With the blessing of Bishop Ralph and guidance of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Copeland also established and oversaw the School of Ministry through which he taught monthly workshops on the gift of prophecy across the United States, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, Dallas, Los Angeles and Texas. His ministerial work has taken him to Hawaii, Bermuda, Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas, Ghana, Brazil and Egypt.

After the death of his spiritual father and covering, Bishop Ralph, Oasis Ministries underwent some restructuring. Pastor Copeland felt the Holy Spirit lead him to a church he had grown to love, Mt. Olive Church of Plano, Texas with Pastor Sam Fenceroy. He and "Pastor Sam" travelled to Brazil to minister together in the missions field where they bonded as kindred spirits. For the past three years, Pastor Sam has served as Copeland's mentor and friend. Consequently, Prophet Copeland was particualry excited when he realized God appointed Pastor Sam to be his new covering.

  Marriage Ministry

Mount Olive Church of Plano
Forever Yours in Christ
Marriage Enrichment Class


The Mount Olive Church of Plano Marriage Class is dedicated to the principle that Marriage is God's oldest and most sacred institution and that the covenant of marriage is a covenant with God, and thereby irrevocable. There is always strife involved as two become one in Christ Jesus, but fire strengthens iron and a commitment to God and each other strengthens a marriage against the wiles of the devil.

In our class, we seek to learn by listening to the greatest Christian teachers available via tape and video. We then discuss elements of their teaching and how to apply the lessons we learn in our everyday life. We never air the family's dirty laundry but we discuss real life issues and challenges and we learn from one another. We encourage one another and give practical ways to apply God's word to our circumstances in order to improve our marriages.

Our facilitators - Cindy and Jesse Townsend and Debbie and Rico Allen represent over 60 years of marriage between them and call upon their journeys in life to give godly guidance and biblical direction. In the end, the class teaches itself as it is all about learning from each other. We have newlyweds and marriages with decades of experience and there is wisdom in each heart God has brought to the class.

We thank Pastor Sam and Pastor Gloria for allowing us to meet and focus our Sunday school time on the development and nurturing of our marriages here at Mount Olive. We pray that if you are a married couple, you will join us and contribute to the process of helping all of us in our journey to improve our marriages day by day, week by week.
