*HISTORY – MICHAEL GILCREAST MINISTRIES, INC.
In early 2001, it all began with divine intervention, “A Vision from God” — On March 13, 2001, Bishop Michael Gilcreast founded, Michael Gilcreast Ministries, Inc. Soon after, Bishop Michael Gilcreast and 1st Lady Melody Gilcreast used their home on North Street, N.E., Leesburg, VA, to begin the ministry with four people. Which led to the formation of HIGHER HOPE APOSTOLIC CHURCH *(Formerly: New Life Praise & Deliverance Church), and the first official service was held on June 3, 2001, Douglass Community Center, 407 East Market Street, Leesburg, VA.
*The Church Scripture is: II Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
