Apostle Harold Faust is a “Destiny Builder” and is a much sought after speaker and minister across the United States and abroad. He lends his ability to motivate and inspire others to success in both secular and spiritual audiences. In 1969 he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior, under the late Bishop Ozro T. Jones, Sr. and under the pastorate of Bishop Ozro T. Jones, Jr., at the Holy Temple Church of God in Christ. From a high school dropout to a college graduate of academic excellence, he attended Manna Bible Institute, The Bishop Ozro Thurston Jones School of Christian Education, North Eastern Christian Junior College, Temple University, Lutheran Theological Seminary and The Eastern Baptist Seminary.  Bishop Faust currently holds two Master Degrees. Licensed as a Minister in 1970, he served the Holy Temple Church of God in Christ at 60th and Callow hill Streets as one of the Associate Ministers of the Church.  The rapid growth of the Church caused him to be thrust forth, ordained in 1974, and appointed as Pastor and Founder of the New Hope Church in 1980. The Philadelphia Inquirer recognized his ability to reach large masses of people and bring them into the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and in 1986 they featured him and his ministry in The Philadelphia Inquirer Magazine with a story called “Storefront Salvation.” In 1993, Bishop Jesse Lomax, Bishop Reuben Thurston Jones, Jr., Bishop Michael Doubs, and other Bishops saw the outstanding work he had done in the community and the City of Philadelphia, and he was consecrated to the Office of Bishop. He has chaired and help organized several major crusades in the City of Philadelphia such as: The Philadelphia Billy Graham Crusade for the Pentecostal Network, under the late Bishop Sylvester Webb; The Philadelphia Civic Center Crusade with Larry Lee; The Philadelphia Crusade with Morris Carrillo; The Mount Sinai and New Hope Crusade of Philadelphia; as well as The Wynne Plaza Crusade with Richard Penniman, better known as “Little Richard”. He organized and chaired the Anacondia Crusade with the Spanish Clergy of Philadelphia at the Temple University Liacouras Center. Bishop Faust launched one of the largest single crusades ever done by any one church entitled “The Fire in The City Crusade” at the Adams Mark Hotel featuring such renowned speakers as:  Bishop Carlton Pearson, Pastor Mason “Mase” Bethea, Pastor Willie J. Campbell and Evangelist Deborah Hooper. If you want to make positive change in your life, visit Apostle Faust at his church in Bala Cynwyd and of course be sure to tell him you saw him on
