It was not only an acknowledgement of the calling on his life why Pastor Dr Michael Harvey became a preacher of the Gospel, but it was about victory over circumstances and a realisation that it was all part of God’s divine plan.
Dr Harvey said that his life is nothing short of a miraculous transformation as he remembers clearly that at the age of 21, before being baptised, he couldn’t read.
Today, he is a proud pastor who has served his church in several leadership roles, counsellor leadership consultant, university administrator, marriage officer, and justice of the peace.
Having served the church for the past 27 years, Harvey is keen on improving and sharing ways to improve leadership in all areas.
“There is a crisis of leadership effectiveness within institutions, organisations, groups, and governments, which, if this trend continues, these entities will lose their vital influence within society. This crisis creates a very important platform to place in the hands of administrators, emergent leaders, pastors, politicians, and organisational leaders a relevant book exploring how leaders are developed, leadership effectiveness, emotional intelligence, and leadership practices that could possibly influence effectiveness,” Harvey said.
