About Evangelist Heyward


Brother Cornelius Heyward attended and graduated from Queens College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Service. He married his lovely wife,         Vanessa. Cornelius and Vanessa have been married for over 38 years and from their blessed union have three children.

In October 1976, Brother Heyward was baptized into the Church of Christ at the Roosevelt/Freeport congregation. After several months, Bro. Maxwell, Minister of the Roosevelt/Freeport Church of Christ, realized that there was a need for a congregation in Far Rockaway and sent Brother Steven Ludy, along with Brother Heyward and several families, to work on starting a church there. During the early years of the Far Rockaway Church of Christ, Brother Heyward loved to study the word of God and studied with the Sunset Extension School.

In 1990, Brother Heyward was ordained minister of the Far Rockaway Church of Christ. Since that time, membership of the congregation has increased substantially as a direct result of his outstanding teaching and leadership.
