Our Pastor

The Reverend Duane Fields, Sr. was born in Queens, New York to Pastor and Mrs. Marvin Fields. He accepted Christ as his Savior on May 24, 1984 in his parents bedroom during family Bible Study and joined the Evangel Baptist Church, Laurelton, NY. On July 19, 1997, he married the love of his life, the Rev. Sheree Fields and to this union two children were born, Duane Jr. and Destiny.

Pastor Fields accepted the call from God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and was licensed on May 11, 1998 at the Second Mount Zion Baptist Church under the tutelage of his father. He was called to pastor the Oxford Mount Zion Baptist Church and was installed on October 22, 2000. During this time, the ministry has seen significant spiritual and numerical growth. Several ministries were initiated and lives continue to be enriched because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Equipped with a Master of Divinity, Pastor Fields has been blessed to speak in several states throughout the country. His exciting and theological approach to preaching has impacted the lives of many and keeps him in heavy demand. God has gifted Pastor Fields to transcend from the church into the community, having particular emphasis on youth and young adults. God has given Pastor Fields a platform and he is a fighter for social justice and attends to his passion of equal and fair treatment for everyone. His ministry motto is simple, "Preach until Heaven is happy!"
