Pastor's focus is to equip people with the ability to win when church is over and make the church relevant in our society. He has pioneered this by starting 25 different ministries and seven profitable businesses in his city including The Heir Force Community School, The Heir Force Academy Daycare, Shunem Enterprises, MVP, Food Catering Company, Impact Center and Helping Hand Economic Development Group.

Pastor Herb Ford
I was born on July 31st 1971 in Chicago, Illinois where I lived briefly, but moved at an early age to Flint, Michigan. In Flint, I ran track and cross country at Beecher High School and set my high school 100m record earning All-state and All- conference honors. The University of Toledo offered me a track scholarship, I took it and completed a B.S. in Administrative Services and Sales.
I have an absolutely beautiful wife named Melissa of 15 years, an awesome son (Christian) and a beautiful little girl (Nadia). God has done so much for my family and I but one of the greatest testimonies would have to be the birth of our daughter Nadia. After doctors informed us that we had a 14% chance of having a child on our own, we began to speak God’s word over our bodies, our unborn daughter and our family. Within a year and a half of walking by faith and obeying God’s word, she is now here healthy and whole.
At CHC my oversight includes our Heir Force Academy Daycare and Shunem Enterprises (a title holding company) of which I am the President. Some of the most enjoyable things I do is facilitating events (Family Fun Nights, Summer Jams, etc.), property acquisitions, building improvements, planning, grant writing, teaching, preaching and single/family life counseling.

In 1972 I married my loving husband Herb. 3 years later I had my first child and raised 2 sons. My husband and I spent 10 years in Rhode Island overseeing Christian Fellowships and Classes.
As the Pastoral Care Pastor at CHC, I have the awesome privilege of loving on God’s kids. I make myself available to people, giving them encouragement, counseling or just information to help them in their walk with God.

Wayne. I am currently serving as Youth Minister to our G-Force Teen Ministry and Heir Force Children's Ministry.
CHC has helped me through every major transition of my adult life and has trained me to be a leader and a builder of people. The truths that I have learned at Cornerstone Harvest Church have molded me into the man I am today, and guide me towards the man I will become tomorrow. I do not have to wait until I get to heaven to live the "God" kind of life. I can reign in dominion right here, and right now. I endeavor now to share these truths with the people God brings my way.
