Special speakers will be Dr. Frank Harvey and Duane and Vickie Jarman.
Harvey is the founder and bishop of Covenant Life Ministries, an international Apostolic network of churches and ministries. He and his wife, Shirley, pioneered New Covenant Church, Clyde, N.C., in 1977 and he remained as senior pastor until January 2004.
Prior to the founding of New Covenant Church, he served as an evangelist and a Southern Baptist pastor in Maryland and North Carolina.
He graduated from Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute in Hendersonville, N.C, and has earned both a bachelor of ministry and a master of theology degree from Christian Life School of Theology, Columbus, Ga.
In 1998, he was awarded an honorary doctor of divinity degree by Christian Life School of Theology.
Harvey has ministered in hundreds of churches of all denominations throughout the United States and internationally. He is a member of the Board of Elders of Evangel Fellowship International.
Harvey functions in an apostolic role with several ministers and churches, both in the U.S. and abroad. He has been instrumental in planting several new churches and helping to reconstitute others. He regularly meets with ministers to provide ongoing apostolic oversight and teaching, hosting Sustained Apostolic Leadership Training (SALT) meetings.
He is a “father in the faith” to many spiritual sons and daughters whom he has helped raise up and send out in ministry. For more than a decade he has been involved in Apostolic and Apostolic/Prophetic roundtables and forums to actively promote the understanding and function of fivefold ministry, both in the United States and internationally. He ministers in Europe, Africa, Latin America and U.S.
The Jarmans have a traveling ministry that brings prophetic encouragement and strength to Godʼs people. They enjoy helping believers in local churches understand what the Lord is saying to them and helping equip Godʼs people do what God has called them to do.
The duo are part of the senior leadership at North Gate Church in Salisbury, N.C., and also travel to strengthen believers in the United States and other nations, including the Middle East.
Their ministry experience comes from many years of walking with the Lord Jesus and serving in many aspects of ministry, including serving as a pastor, worship leader, and in childrenʼs ministry, the Jarmans said.
The services will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 4 and 5, and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 6.
Living Word Church is located at 930 25th St. Nursery and children’s ministries will be provided. For more information visit online at www.thelovingchurch.com.
