The Vision of Founding Pastor, John H. May, and Dr. Dorothy S. May for
Higher Power Church Ministries is to:
Develop an unwavering faith in God Almighty
Cultivate a phenomenal and incessant Prayer Life
Stay steadfast in our discipleship by living in God’s will
Becoming obedient tithers
Witness God’s people walking in healing
Testifying to the miracles that the Lord has given us Power to perform.
"When we live before men as we should, the body of Christ will Increase,
the finances will Overflow, and the kingdom of God will Advance"
Pastor John H. May humbly accepted his call to Ministry in 1989. Beginning with his ordination, February 25, 1990, by Rev. Joseph Phillips and the Nazaree Baptist Church, Pastor May received numerous accolades such as Bible Certificates, Evangelism Trainer, and several Administration and Christian Education certifications. Upon his completion of studies from the Birmingham Baptist College, in Birmingham, AL, in 1991, Pastor May served and led the Union Baptist Church, of Coffeeville, AL for three years until God placed him at Delaware Street Missionary Baptist Church. He continued his education at the Urban Alternative where he became a certified Theologian.
Pastor May preached his first sermon “Come Out From Among The Stuff” at Delaware in 1994 and has been preaching and teaching there until August 30, 2017. Under his leadership the church membership grew exponentially, spiritual connections thrived and finances flourished. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Pastor May has stepped out on faith to become the founding pastor of Higher Power Church Ministries on September 3, 2017. He is a conference/seminar presenter, teacher and speaker, imparting wisdom and life experiences boldly for God. He not only speaks locally, but wherever he may be called to travel. He has charged the officers, leaders, and congregation of Higher Power to seek to host the presence of God: “A wise man is he that wins souls”.
