The Vision

In December of 2001, the Lord put a picture of the theme of this ministry in which Heart for Him would be birthed. The vision is to present the transforming love of Christ to communities in practical, as well as spiritual ways. This vision is seen clearly in Ezekiel 11:19-20, “And I will give them one heart and put a new spirit within them;  I will remove their heart of stone from their bodies and give them a heart of flesh, so they may follow My statutes, keep My ordinances, and practice them.  Then they will be My people, and I will be their God.”

Over the years and currently, Heart for Him Ministries has hosted annual Women's Conferences along with fundraising tea events, baby showers, and diaper drives for local faith-based charities. Through Heart for Him Ministries, Mary has received various awards and recognition for her fundraising efforts. Among these are:

  • Compassion and Champion-level awards from Grace Centers of Hope Homeless Children's Program
  • Feed the Children- “ABC”  Abandoned Babies & Children Program
  • Support for the AAA Pregnancy Resource Center of Livonia, through numerous Diaper Drives, and annual Baby Showers.

Pastor Mary is a confidante, teacher, poet, friend, generous giver, an earnest intercessor, and has a great love and compassion for women. When you are with her you will feel loved. She has an amazing way of making even the simplest of things, the grandest occasion.

Heart for Him Ministries was birthed from many years of leading women’s fellowship meetings, which consisted of breaking bread with the saints, ministry among the ladies, and prayer,  which has always been a key part of her meetings. To Mary’s delight, the monthly gatherings continue to this day on the third Thursday of each month.

We Believe

  • The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, inerrant Word of God.

  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • He has revealed Himself in creation, history and Jesus Christ.

  • God’s creation of the world and humankind with humanity’s rebellion and subsequent depravity.

  • In the person and work of Jesus Christ, including His deity, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His true humanity, His miracles, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to heaven, and His personal return in power and glory.

  • That for salvation of the lost, sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

  • Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ as one’s Savior.

  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and to grow in the knowledge of God and Christian obedience.

  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

  • In the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and in the importance of church for worship, service and missions.

Heart for Him is a fellowship that has a heart for reaching out. We are non-denominational and diversified community; in culture and ages. Our goal is help to women discover healing, hope, and ultimately God’s purpose in their lives.

The 3rd Thursday is our monthly fellowship meeting where we come together for bible study, light snacks and prayer. This gathering is a wonderful time of sharing. It’s a  time when we socially interact, get acquainted, and as a result, form many personal friendships. We also benefit from the ministry of many anointed speakers and teachers throughout the year in these fellowship meetings.

Heart for Him Ministries is a 501-C3 non-profit organization
