The Story of How God birthed Heritage Christian Fellowship
Every man called to plant a church understands the word, "Miraculous," because every church that God builds is nothing short of a miracle. Heritage Christian Fellowship is no exception.
It was Sunday morning, October 25th, 1998. Pastor Tom Long had "run his race" at a previous church and announced he was returning to the classroom to be a high-school teacher. He had been a pastor for 28 years, and now his work was complete. He and his wife Sandi were leaving the ministry...
...So he thought.
God had other plans. In five short days, God would introduce Tom to the members of his new congregation and begin a work that would surpass anything he had imagined.
It was a Friday morning when Pastor Tom found himself sitting in a Coffee House next to a strip mall near his home. I’ll submit an application today at the school district…, he mused. …and maybe start a Bible study. Just then he noticed the storefront church next to the coffee shop. The front door was open, and he decided to check it out.
