Anderson University welcomes Harvey Carey to the campus for Spiritual Emphasis Week (SEW), October 23-25. Harvey Carey is the founder and Lead Pastor of the Citadel of Faith Covenant Church in Detroit, Michigan. The Anderson University office of Spiritual Life and Counseling Services sponsors SEW once each year to offer students and the community an opportunity for worship and study with an off-campus speaker.
A skilled communicator, Pastor Carey is known internationally for his remarkable ability to communicate the transforming Word of God. One of his greatest passions in ministry is reaching “hopeless” individuals with the message of Jesus Christ.
As a Youth Pastor in one of the most devastated communities in inner-city Chicago, Pastor Carey developed a nationally emulated model for ministry that began with 12 youth in 1989 and grew to over 1,500 teenagers over ten years. In addition to developing and expanding the Youth Church model, which allows teens to provide leadership and planning of the worship event, he launched outreach ministries to the urban community. Pastor Carey has lead ministry teams into housing projects, shopping malls, and public schools in urban areas across country, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. Pastor Carey is one of nation’s most sought after speakers, and has preached the gospel in several cities across the United States, Africa, Australia, and Europe.
Pastor Carey, his wife and high-school sweetheart, Nancy and daughter, Tiffany reside in inner-city Detroit, Michigan.
