OUR FOUNDING PASTOR
28 Years in Pastoral Ministry
Reverend Dr. Billy Ray Harper was born again into the kingdom of God on May 15, 1987 at the age of 29. While he may have gotten somewhat of a late start in His spiritual journey, he’s been making up for the lost time ever since.
Our pastor is somewhat of a Christian entrepreneur, doing pioneering work in Christian television production, West African missions, community ministries and as Pastor of New Beginnings Church.
He has an earned doctorate from Aspen Theological Seminary and has been preaching since 1991. In addition to his work as our Pastor, Dr. Harper is the President of BK Productions, and Alpha and Omega Broadcasting Network, a Certified Counselor.
President of New Beginnings Church West African Mission Projects for 10 years. He has other affiliations and community involvements too numerous to list in this limited space, but all of those take second place to his primary positions of husband, father (to four) and grandfather(to 13 ). His wife Karen is Billy’s “left hand.” He says, “You can do no great task without the use of both hands. If there’s something large to lift, while the right hand may be stronger, the left hand completes the grasp. One hand can point the way, but it takes both to applaud and encourage. Karen is my strength. I could not be the man I am in Christ today without her constant encouragement help and support.” Dr. and Mrs. Harper’s marriage is an example to all people of the strength found in the oneness of a couple that is fully committed to God and to one another. Dr. Harper loves the Scripture and is devoted to much prayer. As a result our church is experiencing phenomenal numerical and spiritual growth. You will love the preaching ministry of Dr. Harper. It is something he was well known for throughout our region and even around the world, long before he surrendered to begin our church. Pastor preaches relatively short, powerful messages filled with practical principles for everyday living. When you visit New Beginnings Church you will come away more empowered, better equipped and strongly encouraged to tackle life in all of it’s complexities and challenges. Pastor Harper believes deeply that "God does not count numbers, But He makes numbers count." One of Pastor Harper's favorite saying is "Nobody can beat God at being God".
