Minister Roderick E. Stanley formed the group, Roderick Stanley & The Gospel Spirituals in the early part of 2003, which the name was too close to his mother's group The Gospel Superiors, so he decided to changed the name of the group to Roderick Stanley & The Angelaires, but something was not right to Roderick about the name, so he prayed, prayed and prayed about it during the same year of 2003.
In a dream, God showed Roderick that people were not being true to Him and that He wants the people to have all the benefits of His Glory and to have True Value in His rights. Roderick came back to His mother and told her about his dream and said stated that the group will be called TruValue. The song ministry organization is known as TruValue Song Ministries, which is the overall ministry title which is still active, and is still currently under the leadership of Minister Stanley. The name: The Holy Spirit Believers came to Roderick, while sitting at the dining Table, praying and working on some music for the group. Roderick was praying and asking the Lord, a few questions in prayer about going to the next level, and the answer was the love of Christ must be in all of you, but if you don't believe in the Holy Spirit, then you will perish. 1 Peter 4:16 says: However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
From that scripture Minister Stanley, got that we must be believers of the Holy Spirit and obey the Lords humble word, which is set before us, and not to in fear of what others think. The word was saying that no matter what people says or tries to do you and block you don't back down on your calling, but give God all the praises for if you bear the marks you will get rewarded. For each level in ministry God has a name for you, so to be completely True Value in the eyesight of God you must be willing to be used and you must believe in the Holy Spirit. It was then time to step on that next level and let God work on the group which God then transformed the group to the next level of Roderick "Gospel Star" Stanley & TruValue of Southeast, Georgia to Minister Roderick Stanley & The Holy Spirit Believers of Southeast. TruValue was being helped from a group of brothers of Rochester, New York, currently known as the Gloreous Sons. Do to the fact that there were many times when the group was not able to make engagements do to the fact of the distance TruValue had to reorganize, again. The second change lasted a year and God's word was able to be spread and people able to confess that they believe in God.
As, time went on in the mid part of the year 2007, Roderick was back to step one, but never lost sight in His vision that God had for him. He prayed and asked God to send sincere, people that would Love to minister, and give God the Glory. Roderick's request to God was answered. By being obedient listening to God speaking to him, he was able to ask three members of a youth choir in Darien, Georgia, and two members of a youth choir in Cox, Georgia, if they would like to sing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They accepted and started to sing and travel, and learn ministry. Later, the youth took interest in many other school and church activities and so young men of a group called The Little Miracle Singers of Albany joined and sang for awhile, under Minister Stanley leadership as The Holy Spirit Believers and traveled to new areas ministering the word of God in song to many. Then later down the road, as it became difficult for the young guys to participate and travel, Minister Stanley's, Mother, Grandmother, Brother, God-Brother, and Cousin joined the group while under the name of The Holy Spirit Believers. Roderick is currently the lead singer, alongside him; His mother, Evangelist Ethel Stanley known as Evangelist E is second lead, and his grandmother, Missionary Ethel Mae Stanley is third lead. Now the current Holy Spirit Believers have accomplished a lot during their time in ministry together. They have shared the stage with many national and independent gospel singers, recorded the "AfterWhile" project and have appeared on television, radio, have appeared in news articles and magazines, state fairs and festivals and much more!
