About Us

In August 1999, Reverend Virgil and Pastor Brenda K. White opened their home and taught bible-study in their basement, thus began Christian Living Church, with over 25 members. Christian Living Church grew as Rev. and Pastor White taught the word and cared for the people of God, and in 2001, Christian Living Church became From the Heart Church Ministries of Cincinnati (“From the Heart of Cincinnati”) under the worldwide leadership of Episcopal Pastor Emeritus, Dr. John A. Cherry. Now, we are part of From the Heart Church Ministries Worldwide™ – one church, worldwide with a common Vision, Plan and Motivation extracted from the Word of God, based on the Word of God, and subject to the Word of God. From the Heart of Cincinnati continued to grow under the leadership of Reverend and Pastor White until their retirement on Sunday, September 3, 2017. On that same day, Reverend Andre’ L. Cook was ordained, and Reverend Clarissa W. Cook was installed as pastor of our church.

Rev. and Pastor Cook are forever thankful for Rev. and Pastor White, for their labor of love, and for the foundation they have laid at this wonderful church. As a congregation, we continue to build upon the foundation that has been laid as we walk in what we have been taught. Moreover, we are excited about what God is doing in From the Heart Church Ministries Worldwide™! On July 15, 2018, we witnessed the installation of our new Episcopal Pastor, Bishop John A. Cherry, II, a man who is preparing us for the next move of God. Our assignment as a worldwide church is to restore this generation. Bishop Cherry has declared “this is the essential work of the Church.”

We are a strong church with a rich history, but the best is yet to come! Here, at From the Heart Church Ministries of Cincinnati, we are determined to do our part to move the Worldwide Church forward. Come to join us at one of our services and you will be glad that you did!
