In 1991, Evangelist Clarence E. McClendon assumed the pastorate of the West Adams Foursquare Church in Los Angeles. At the time only dozens of people gathered regularly for worship services in the small wooden church. Undeterred by the small numbers, Evangelist McClendon set to work with a vision and a mandate from the Lord to “take the whole gospel to the whole world, for mankind’s whole deliverance”. Faithfully he preached, taught and exhorted as if ministering to thousands of people each time he mounted the pulpit.
In 1993 the name of the church changed to Church of the Harvest and the congregation steadily multiplied as men and women responded to the word of the Lord. McClendon was consecrated to the bishopric in 1997 and as the call on his life and the ministry grew, Church of the Harvest transformed into the worldwide ministry of Full Harvest International Church (FHIC). Today, thousands of partners are connected to FHIC and receive on-time, revelatory teachings from Bishop McClendon. This multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, international fellowship, strives to meet the present needs of its partners across the world.
