HARVEST CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY
In 2009 The founders of HCU began working day and night to reach out to pastors. They recognized the need for Pastoral Counselors in the marketplace. Because The Founders had Ph.D. , Doctorate level education along with a combined experience and expertise of over 75 years. The specialty was behavioral health. Behavioral Health is an over 113 billion dollar broke delivery service.
After 6 months of work, marketing and research it seemed that there was no interest in participating on the cutting edge of pastoral care. Soon the state and secular Christians organizations would soon move toward state and and government mandates that would block pastors and ministers who did no have a masters degree in counseling or a state license. Well it happened.
The 4 year dream had become a nightmare and the condition of the family continued to deteriorate and fragment. Those two factors remain constant even today. As though a blind barrier had been put in the place of real education.
Now the the difference between facts and the truth must be displayed and mandated. The following year 2010 the HCU logo was created and presented and the Work started and the vision was drawn and executed. HCU went from a Pastoral Certification program , to Chaplaincy Commission to a Doctoral School to a University touching 169 nations. HCU now has a Royal Chancellor " HRM Dr. Edmund Keli' Silva , Adjunct Professors, Program Chairs , Deans and Campus Ministries.
