About Pastor “Sonny”


“Sonny” Stimson has been the senior pastor at Christian Fellowship Church in Scotland, CT since 1981. During his time here, pastor Sonny has seen CFC grow from a small group people to a thriving church that has 600 people attending on a Sunday morning.

Sonny believes that teaching strong but basic biblical truth sets the foundation for an effective church to build on. To that firm foundation, faithful and active support of missions work, dynamic youth ministries and a wide variety of music are added to give CFC it’s unique identity.

Sonny became a born again Christian at age five and has been involved in church life ever since. As a young adult he served in local churches as a bible study leader, Sunday school teacher, nursery worker and was willing to take on whatever needed doing.

He has been married to his wife, Belinda, since 1969 and they have 14 children and 32 grandchildren. Most of his children and grandchildren currently attend and serve at Christian Fellowship Church.

He is a 1981 graduate of Elohim Bible Institute in Castile, New York where he graduated at the top of his class.
