FTHCM of Edmonton, Canada
In May 2007, Pastor Rene’ Vincent Tshibula, of Peniel Christian Assembly of Alberta in Edmonton Alberta, Canada, contacted Episcopal Pastor Cherry and expressed his interest in the Reformation message and the vision of From the Heart Church Ministries®. Pastor Tshibula was invited to attend the Macedonian Ministries and Focus Group Conference in September 2007 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Pastor Tshibula attended that Conference and brought his wife and children with him.
Pastor Tshibula was given an assignment by Episcopal Pastor Cherry with specific instructions. He notified the Episcopal Pastor in February of 2008 of his desire to become part of From the Heart Church Ministries Worldwide™ (FTHCMW). Pastor Tshibula completed the admission process, and in July 2012, Episcopal Pastor Cherry and Mrs. Cherry traveled to Edmonton in Alberta, Canada to visit Peniel Christian Assembly of Alberta. During his visit, the Episcopal Pastor met with the church’s Board and the Board members expressed their desire to become a part of FTHCM. As a result, Pastor Tshibula was given authority to continue the process to become a From the Heart Pastor and the church became a “Perfecting Member” of From the Heart Church Ministries®. Pastor Tshibula began the training in earnest in the Fall of 2012 at the Parent Church. Because of the Canadian laws, the extensive process continues.
