Meet Bishop Walter Harvey

Born in a community with the highest rates of incarceration, poverty, and unemployment in the entire country, Bishop Harvey could have been a statistic — another prisoner, another drug addict, another young man gone too soon. His mothers prayers and the power of God transformed his life. He answered Gods call to ministry and has served faithfully for more than 35 years.

"Once when some Israelites were burying a man, they spied a band of these raiders. So they hastily threw the corpse into the tomb of Elisha and fled. But as soon as the body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man revived and jumped to his feet!"

-2 Kings 13:21 (NLT)
