About From the Heart of HarrisburgWho We Are, What We Believe and How We Believe It
At present, there are From the Heart churches located in each region of the United States and around the world, on six different continents. The current Episcopal Pastor, Bishop John A. Cherry, II is responsible for the spiritual, administrative, and financial oversight of From the Heart.
In January 2000, Ronald L. Young was a minister on staff at From The Heart Church Ministries® Parent Church. With the blessings of the late Founding Pastor, Dr. John A. Cherry, he relocated to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to start the Bread of Life Church Ministries. When the Episcopal Pastor began receiving other ministries into From the Heart Church Ministries® as Reformation churches, Pastor and Mrs. Young transitioned from the Bread of Life Church Ministries to From the Heart Church Ministries of Harrisburg in March 2003.
From the Heart Church Ministries of Harrisburg is a lively and exciting church. On June 15, 2008 the Episcopal Pastor dedicated the new home of From the Heart Church Ministries of Harrisburg. The Harrisburg church is the first From the Heart Church that was organized into a full- service church, including purchasing its permanent church home, without any financial assistance from the Parent Church. From the Heart of Harrisburg hosted the October 2009 bi-annual Episcopal Council Meeting and From the Heart Pastors Conference. From the Heart of Harrisburg has experienced tremendous growth over the years. “After School” and “Summer Camp” programs are available to the Harrisburg members and the City of Harrisburg under the directorship of Reverend E. Sheila Young.
On Sunday, July 7, 2019 Pastor and Reverend Young retired from active ministry and Episcopal Pastor John A. Cherry, II installed Pastor Reginald Covington as the new Pastor.
Pastor and Mrs. Covington will build on the foundation that was laid and help prepare the church for the next move of God.
