Our Network

CIAN is a network of ministers and churches brought together by a common heart and vision. Our goal is to provide a place for both ministers and churches to be established in present-day truth and accountability.

Our Pastors

John and Sue Bowers have an impressive global history in service to the Lord. John and Sue are Graduates of Rhema Bible Training Center. They pastored in Ohio for over four years. In 1980, they founded Good News International, a missions ministry which is flourishing. As President of G. N. I., John has been establishing a retreat in Florida to train missionaries from around and to provide much needed rest and recuperation from the mission field.
 Called to Haiti in 1985, John and Sue ran a school for missionary children and founded a church which became part of the Foursquare denomination. After ten years of ministry to pastors and missionaries, John was named Senior Pastor, Sue was named Administrative Pastor of Grace Fellowship International Church in Erie, PA.
 Under their leadership, Grace is a thriving regional church prophesied to establish the Kingdom of God in the greater Erie area. Under the covering of Christian International Network of Churches, Pastor John most recently completed a ministry trip to Dominican Republic. He frequently travels to nations to encourage pastors and missionaries rundown by daily difficulties, political unrest, and the sense of being alone. Other mission travels include Haiti, Nunavut, Guatemala, China, India, Mexico, and Japan. Pastor Sue is a phenomenal teacher and prophet and is dedicated to seeing the details of ministry perfected here in Grace.
 John and Sue have three children: Matthew serves as associate pastor at Grace; Sarah works at home; and Micah works as a financial advisor.
