OUR HISTORY

Where We Began


As a successful hospitality and financial consultant and an emerging ministry leader, the Lord called Apostle William Shalders from Africa to pastor a small church of about 20 committed members in the Bronx, New York in December 2004.

Apostle Shalders, his wife, and three children left all they had achieved with their businesses and career behind to yield to the calling of God.

At a point in time, they had to give out all they had acquired and their businesses as gifts to focus fully on the mission here in the United States.

Within two years of pastoring the storefront church, his office was added to expand the size of the meeting place due to numerical growth; by the 3rd year, the storefront had become too small. The church went on to buy a property where Apostle continued to serve the ever-growing ministry until February 2015, when the Lord called him to a new ministry direction.

He resigned to start the Love Legacy Chapel International.

Love Legacy began on Tuesday, February 24th, with seven days of prayer and fasting at their apartment on Brunner avenue in the Bronx with about 20 adults.

Without a plan to start Sunday worship services immediately, Apostle and his wife Belinda walked into medical practice to enquire about space listed for rent in their building, and the practice director offered their waiting room for Sunday services until a meeting space was found.

On March 1st, 2015, Love Legacy Chapel had our first Sunday Service at the waiting room of Infinite Possibilities with 50 adults and children in attendance, after which the church has experienced continuous growth numerically and spiritually week after week.

Love legacy Chapel has been called to Love God and Love people, and we are poised to fulfill this assignment.
