Church History

“Wednesday March 29th, 2000 while I, Donald E. Jones, was driving to Dayton, Ohio, at 800 am, to visit one of my customers, the Lord spoke to me and told me to start a church named World Faith Harvest Fellowship Church and use these Scriptures: 


Matthew 9:37 & 38, “The Harvest is Truly plentiful but the laborers are few.”

Acts 2:41-47 and Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepth the law, happy is he”.


After much prayer and fasting I shared the vision with my wife, Johnnie B. Jones. We prayed together for God’s will and timing to be done. Thursday, April 27th, 2000, we met with a few Christian friends, in our home at 10049 Manistee Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45251, and shared God’s vision with them”.


Thursday April 27th, 2000 was the day that Elder Donald E. Jones became the Founder & Pastor of World Faith Harvest Fellowship Church, located in his home at 10049 Manistee Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45251.


Tuesday May 2nd, 2000, we held devotion and prayer services and prepared for our first worship service, which was Sunday May 7th, 2000. A roll call was taken of the charter members: Elder Donald E. Jones, Founder & Pastor, Johnnie B. Jones, Donald E. Jones III, Quincy L. Jones, Alysha Walker, Andre Walker, Anthony Walker, Larenda Jackson, Bernard Jackson II, Elaine Mills, Paul Mills Sr., Paul Mills II and Brandon Mills.


Sunday May 7th, 2000, we held our first, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise and Worship Service in the Jones’ home at 10049 Mainstee Way, Cincinnati, Oh 45251. At that service, three new members joined our church family. They were Minister Sheri Bostic, Demetria Wilburn, and Mrs. Annell Williams (Pastor’s Mother).


June 13th, 2000 World Faith Harvest Fellowship Church became a Charter Church No. 1162645, incorporated as an Ohio not-for-profit church. Currently in good standing with the State of Ohio.


Friday & Saturday November 17th & 18th, 2000 “The First Annual Presbyters Retreat” was held at Kings Island Resort. During that time, Pastor Donald E. Jones shared his vision for the church which the Lord had given him. The church would remain at 10049 Manistee Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45251. But before the Spring of May 2001, we would look to move into either a school building or YMCA or some other store front building.


Sunday April 1st, 2001, we held, PRAISE THE LORD, our first Praise & Worship Service in our New Church Location, Taylor Elementary School, located at 3173 Springdale Road, Cincinnati, OH 45251.


November 17th, 2001 God Blessed our church to Possess and Purchase the land on Pippin Rd., to build God’s Sanctuary. “To God Be The Glory”.


Sunday September 15th, 2002 the church conducted a ground-breaking ceremony at 10456 Pippin Rd. It had rained that day; the ground was muddy and our shoes were covered with mud. But that didn’t matter. We can laugh about that now, as Minister Mills said, “We came from dirt”.


October 14th, 2002 the contractor began pouring the slab for the church foundation. For the next eight weeks, Pastor operated from a construction trailer. Even though he had no prior knowledge about building church, he was the General Contractor. Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me”. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!


December 22nd, 2002, eight weeks later, WFHF Church Family marched into our new Sanctuary at 10456 Pippin Rd. “To God Be The Glory”. We have come this far by Faith. Leaning on the Lord, He has never failed us yet.


Luke 5:31-32, “And Jesus answering said unto them. They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”.


We thank God for adding all the new members, who were either baptized or came on their Christian experience to join the WFHF Church Family.


The Jail Ministry has been going down to the Justice Center for over 22 years spreading The Good News of Jesus Christ and providing hope for those who are in need. Matthew 25:36b, “I was in prison and ye came unto me,”.


Having the Courage to Change Ministry. WFHFC continues to minister the word of God and fellowship for over 20 years to the women, who were incarcerated, prostitutes, or on drugs. We are trying to make a difference in the life of God’s people. We teach once a month to the women who are in this place.


Nursing Home Ministry has currently been ministering for over 20 years to those who are in the nursing home throughout Greater Cincinnati. Luke 9:2, “And he sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”


April 18th, 2003, we began our Intercessory Prayer Ministry. Currently interceding for the world and the people for over 14 years. We thank God for hearing and answering many of our saint’s prayers. We prayed that God would provide the resource for us to complete the paving of our church parking lot. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, thank you Jesus. Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing shall be impossible”.


April 26th, 2003 God gave Pastor the Vision for three Choirs: Tribe of Judah, Spirit of Praise and Voices of Praise. February 6th, 2004 The Mime and Praise & Step Dancer Ministries were formed. For over 13 years these Ministries have been a blessing and encouragement to us. Psalms 149: 1 & 3, “Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and His praise in the congregation of saints”. Let them praise His name in dance; let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp. Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that hath breath, Praise the Lord, Praise ye the LORD.”


In 2003 WFHFC began a Partnership with the Mt. Healthy Schools, where Pastor Teaches a Bible Study class with the “Fellowship of Christian Athletes”. He teaches 7th & 8th graders the Word of God and Yes, Prayer in the Schools. Hallelujah, Hallelujah.


September 2003 Pastor and WFHFC Members have been trying to diversify the Colerain Township Police Department, so that it would be a better representation of all people and not just one race of people. God does hear and answer prayer, because now the Colerain Township Police Department has One African Female Police Officer. Over a period of time, the Colerain Township Police Department has been diversified with the addition of Two African American Male Police Officer and One Hispanic Police Officer. 


We helped get the School Levy passed November 4th, 2003. Now our Children will have bus transportation and acquire the new texts books which they are so badly need in order to learn.


I Corinthians 4:2, “Moreover, it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful”. We thank God for the faithfulness of each and every one of you.


December 6th, 2003, we were Blessed to have our 3rd Annual Women’s Workshop at WFHFC. The Theme, “Too Blessed to be Stressed”. Ephesians 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”


In March 2005, we began The Pastoral Care Ministry. Just as women were always attending to the physical and spiritual care of Jesus. For over 12 years, these men and women are Pastor’s Prayer Warriors and Amour Bearers. Their duties are to make sure the Pastor has the items he needs for Sunday Service, make sure his Robes and Capes are cleaned, pray for special needs of the church from Intercessory Prayer and to call and encourage the Pastor and 1st Lady to keep on keeping on. Luke 18:1, “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men or women ought always to pray and not to faint (Are give up).”


Outreach Ministries:

December 29th, 2005, Bethany House, we fed between 25/35 women and children once a month; Drop Inn Center and Heartland (Manor Care) Nursing Home, we bring love, joy, hope and encouragement to those in need.


God gave us dominion over the earth and we are to be good stewards of everything He has created. WFHFC has been in partnership with the Anthony House, a Service for Homeless Youth who are out on the streets of Cincinnati. We thank God for the Food Pantry which helps supply food for these Homeless Youth.


In July 2007, The Mt Healthy Alliance Inc, and Food Pantry, (a coalition of 12 Pastors and Churches). For over 10 years, WFHF church has provided food, clothing and health care services to those in need.


March 29th through Sunday May 10th, 2009, in partnership with Rev. Oliver Adams, West Africa Director, Gospel Train International Ministries, we collected items to completely load up a 24-passenger van.  Rev Oliver delivered this van to the homeless children in Liberia, West Africa.


February 2010, we collected items to send to the victims of Haiti, who suffered lost due to a 7.0 catastrophic magnitude earthquake.


November 2013, we began The Grief and Healing Ministry. For the last 4 years, this ministry has been ministering to those who are sick and shut in, in the hospitals, nursing homes and attending funerals. They provide spiritual healing and comfort through prayer, phone calls, and cards.

James 5:16 (KJV), "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that ye may healed. The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous man availeth much.”


May 2022 the church began farming “The Garden of Hope”. This ministry will provide fresh vegetables and fruit to help those in the community who are need.


The Summer of 2022, the church began “The Free Summer Lunch Program.” This program provides free food every Saturday during the months of June, July, and August 2022, for the children and youth. So that they will not go hungry over the weekend. TO GOD BE GLORY!
