Pastor Jerry Hardison of Active Faith Ministries,Inc. submitted to God in 1973. The reconciliation occurs when he listened to a sermon preached by Elder Joseph Sims of Riverside Faith Temple Church of God in Christ.
Throughout the years he has been educated by Our God and by man in the purpose and the power of faith. He separated from ministry for a time and realized that his hope for a best life, salvation and eternity can only be achieved through Christ. In the year 2000, he again “sat at the feet” of Apostle L. Sims and Apostle Beatrice Sims and joined End-Times Ministries, International. His desire is to serve God and the People of God. His methods are Faith, compassion and evangelism. His study of ministry application has led to ordination as an elder in Riverside Faith Temple Church, End-Times Ministries, both non-denominational Pentecostal Felloships, and the Church of God in Christ.
In August 2009, Pastor Hardison founded and incorporated Active Faith Ministries. The foundation scripture of Galatians 5:6 expresses a belief that Faith must be Active.
Pastor Hardison has served as Outreach and Evangelism Minister at Riverside Faith Temple Church in California and Alexander Chapel COGIC in Lubbock, Texas. He was ordained a second time under The Honorable Bishop William H. Watson III, Jurisdictional Prelate of Texas Northwest.
While living in Lubbock, Texas he also served under Chaplain Perry Halford at the Lubbock County Detention Center. Pastor Hardison, and wife Sandra Hardison partner in ministry from Riverside, California to the nations.
