Who is Huey Harris?
Pastor Harris has not always been a man of God. At a young age,he did not have much guidance toward God or his love. He grew up watching his mother continuously released and readmitted into the state and federal prison system. His father was on crack cocaine, and in 1990 his oldest brother Olingo died tragically after swallowing bags of "crack." He was running from police and needed a place to hide the drugs. Olingo was only only 18 years old.
Pastor Harris was only 12 when he started selling crack for his Grandmother. He wanted to attend his Jr High school dance but he had no money. A young Huey Harris asked his Grandmother for two dollars, and instead of giving him the money she told him to, take this "crack rock and give it to the people who drive up". His first customer was his 7th grade teacher. He made ten dollars for every twenty dollars worth of crack he sold.
Pastor Harris was 15 when he joined a gang. He began to participate in activities like drive by shootings. He was arrested for a murder charge when he was seventeen in which another young man was shot to death. Huey Harris operated numerous crack houses beginning at age nineteen. When he was 22 he was shot three times and left for dead. At the age of 23 he was facing a sentence of 10 YEARS to LIFE for drug dealing. In 2001, at the age of 26 he was considered to be on top of the "drug game." He had cars,women, and money that he had lost count of. He would spend thousand's of dollars a night at clubs, but would still leave feeling empty and with no peace inside.
On several attempts to seek local pastors for advice he felt God drawing him nearer. Jesus said in John 6:44; No man can come to me, except the father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. If there would be any help for him it would have to come directly from God. With no advice or guidance he went back into his old lifestyle,but not for long because his prayers of fourteen years was about to be answered by God.
On April 6, 2001. Pastor Harris was leaving The Rose Supper Club, formerly "Top Flight"around 3 AM when God showed him Three VISIONS of JUDGEMENT DAY. The FIRST: He recalled seeing young and old running around while God sent fire from the sky.The SECOUND: The Earth was dark and he recalled seeing bones everywhere and smoke covering the EARTH. and vapor from the smoke covering the earth. The THIRD: in this vision the Earth was beutiful, the water was a pure blue and for the first time in his life, he had peace that money cannot buy.
After this "God Encounter" the lord told him that he was being released from his Hellish lifestyle to witness the Glory and Love of Jesus Christ. The next day he lovingly shared with his mother and father what had taken place and the immediate change in his life. He traveled the whole city of Montgomery, Alabama proclaiming the love of God and declaring that all people must repent and turn to Jesus. At first, people ran from him. How could a known drug dealer know God? Such is a wonder of God's love and forgievness. Romans 3:23 states that: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. After he kept declaring God's word and his love more people opened up to him. Drug dealers, gang memebers and killers all wanted help from Pastor Harris. People of all backgrounds sought him out for spiritual guidance and prayer, and he happily obliged.
Now Pastor Harris travels the United States sharing the gospel. Other Works: On October 13, 2007 Pastor harris appeared on Help Line TV in Los Angeles, California and was interviewed by Dr. Morris Cerullo. On November 15, 2007 Pastor Harris appeared on "American Family" in Washington,DC. June 24, 2008 Pastor Harris was on "The 700 Club" sharing his testimony.
