Pastor William Shcobie Nesbitt III is affectionately known by many as “Cobie” and is married to his beautiful and lovely wife, Lady Camilla Nesbitt.  They are the proud parents of three beautiful daughters and a handsome son. 

In January 2001, Pastor Cobie accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at Philippian Community Church under the leadership of Bishop Virgil C. Jones, Sr. December of the following year; Pastor Cobie hearkened to the call of God to preach the gospel (Luke 4:18).  On August 19, 2005, he was officially licensed and ordained as a Minister of the gospel by Bishop Jones.

In 2002, Lady Camilla accepted Christ as her personal Savior. Subsequently, she joined Greater Refuge Temple under the leadership of Bishop Gentile Groover, as she desired the will of God to be perfected in her life. In 2005, Lady Camilla moved her membership to Philippian Community Church to be alongside her husband, under the leadership of Bishop Virgil C. Jones, Sr. Bishop and Elder Jones recognized the anointing, the grace, and the spirit of excellence that Lady Camilla possessed as she served in ministry and on June 10, 2017, after more than 10 years of service, maturation, and proving in the Philippian family, God impressed upon the hearts of Bishop and Elder Jones to license and ordain Lady Camilla among the first group of women to ever hold the office of an Elder in the Philippian Community Church organization.  

Pastor Cobie attributes his guidance and wisdom from his natural parents William Nesbitt Jr. & Maria Nesbitt and his spiritual parents Bishop Virgil C. Jones Sr. and Elder Mary Jones who invested time, love, and wisdom that helped solidify his spiritual foundation. As their role of spiritual parents, they birthed Pastor Cobie into ministry. The wealth of knowledge and insight gained during his time at Philippian Community Church exceeds any formation of words that one could even attempt to express.  

Pastor Cobie and Lady C are equally thankful to God, for the continual outpouring of favor and grace. God has emphatically increased Pastor Cobie and Lady Camilla’s value with the addition of Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin and Lady Narlene McLaughlin. Over the past several years, Bishop Vaughn and Lady Narlene have embraced and nurtured Pastor Cobie, Lady Camilla, and The Truth in Love Family as their own. Bishop McLaughlin's dynamic leadership and training has left an indelible mark on the leaders of Truth in Love. 

God has favored Pastor Cobie and Lady Camilla with great men and women of God. These men and women have instructed, guided, trained, and poured life principles and wisdom into their lives. This has empowered them to go forth, winning souls in love for the glory of God

Small Beginnings

On Monday, June 2nd, 2014 under the leadership of Pastors Cobie and Camilla Nesbitt Truth in Love Ministries opened its doors for the first time. Early on, Truth in Love was blessed with the opportunity to hold their first services inside the chorus room at William M. Raines High School. These inaugural services were bible studies called “Monday Nights in the Word.” Amazingly, it became immediately apparent that God used “Monday Nights in the Word” to establish a foundation and build momentum for Truth in Love Ministries.

 It was on Sunday, January 4th, 2015 that Truth in Love Ministries was blessed to officially open its doors as a full-time ministry inside of the William M. Raines High School auditorium. It was during this first Sunday Morning Worship Experience in which Pastor Cobie preached a message entitled “A Vision of Manifestation” to establish the identity for the present and future of Truth in Love Ministries. 

 The favor of God over TIL continued to manifest through relationship and membership. Subsequently, on June 7, 2015 the ministry was afforded the awesome opportunity to move their worship services to 7137 Main Street. Pastors Cobie and Camilla would use the time at this location to establish the groundwork of community and giving within TIL. As a result, TIL began experiencing exponential growth in membership and discipleship. 

 After spending almost a year being blessed by others through God’s favor, TIL realized an extension of that grace and favor by obtaining their own facility. On June 5th, 2016, with great jubilation TIL opened the doors of their own, newly renovated facility at 1989 Dunn Ave. Since the transition to the new facilities TIL has continued and increased their efforts in impacting the community around them.

 After rallying together the entire year of 2017, TIL was able to raise $50,000.00 as a down payment toward the purchase of our facility at 1989 Dunn Avenue. Official closing on this edifice of God took place on January 3, 2018. We give God all the praise, honor and glory as he has continued to provide fresh visions and provisions for the years to come.
