Michael Hart is the Senior & Founding Pastor of Spirit Filled Family Church. Spirit Filled Family Church was founded in 2005. The first service was held on July 6, 2005 at the home of Apostle and First Lady Hart in the city of Rialto. There were seven people in attendance: Apostle Hart, First Lady and their five children at the time, Nancy, Kaiyah, DeAnna, Antonyo, & Ryesha. The following Sunday there were six others in attendance. Within a month there were more than 25 members.
By Spirit Filled Family Church’s first anniversary in June there were nearly 100 members! In September of 2006 the services were moved from the Pastors home to the Senior Center in Rialto. For about a year we met there before moving to a more accommodating facility in the city of Colton. In 2008 Spirit Filled Family Moved from the city of Colton to the High Desert. God has blessed us in this. Come out and Fellowship with your Spirit Filled Family… we are expecting God to do great things!
Pastor Hart started out as many other pastors, as an average youth growing up in the streets of Los Angeles. Like many youth in the L.A. he became a part of the system by the age of 10. He bounced between foster homes and relatives homes until he found himself homeless at age 15. Also in foster care were his two little sisters and little brother. None of them had known the meaning of “Family.”
In 1994, he met and was granted the privilege, by a judge, to marry his one and only wife, Akilah. He was 16. In 1995 they had their first daughter, Nancy. Still longing for “his family”, Pastor Hart and his wife started the process to get his siblings out of foster care. Once again he was granted the privilege by a judge, to receive all three of his siblings. DeAnna, Antonyo, and Ryesha were in his care for nearly 10 years. After which the Harts were blessed with their last two daughters Kaiyah & Rosaleyn.
Pastor Hart received Jesus in 1994 at Carver 4 Square Church (Compton, CA – Pastor H. Doby). There he served as a deacon and youth minister. In 1999 Pastor Hart and his wife began to serve at Walk With Jesus Cathedral (Colton, CA – Apostle I. Hailu). He served as a deacon ,musician, and minister. In 2002 Pastor Hart and his wife served at Bethlehem Temple Community Church in (Rialto, CA – Bishop M. Garrett), where he served as Minister of Music and established “Friday Night Live” a successful gospel variety event. In 2004 he was involved in establishing The Way World Outreach located in (San Bernardino, CA – Pastor M. Garcia) where he served as an associate pastor. In 2005 God released him to start Spirit Filled Family Church currently located in Hesperia, Ca. We serve over 500 people per week not only with service but programs that assist the community. Come out and Fellowship with your Spirit Filled Family… we are expecting God to do great things!
Though Pastor Hart loves music he knows that his first calling in to feed the sheep of God and the music is secondary. The Word of the Lord came through many prophets that this day would come. We thank God for those who hear His voice.
