Bishop Harvey Lee Spencer Sr., founded Greater Love Church, the church where “we love you no matter what you are going through” and a nonprofit, Love In Action, both located in the City of Raleigh.

Bishop Spencer is a graduate of Mattamuskeet High School, Swanquarter, NC. Bishop Spencer is the owner of Du-Rite Construction.
Bishop has assisted the homeless, low-income, and those unfortunate people who have fallen unto untimely hardships. Bishop has opened the doors of his Church to members of the community to host funerals, gospel singing, ex-offender programs, mentoring programs for girls and boys.
Bishop opened the doors to Restorative Practices allowing Campbell Law School and Wake County Public School Systems an opportunity to dialogue with the community.
Bishop Spencer oversaw the renovation of the second floor of his Church and turned it into a “Business Center.” The center has allowed entrepreneurs to launch sometimes new business endeavors: Beauty Salons, Electrolysis & Skin Spa, Home Health Care, Insurance Agency, Wholesale car dealer, Permanent Make UP, training/certifications in First Aid as well as allowing two Churches use of the Event Center.
Every Wednesday, Bishop opens the doors of his Church feeding the community with a well nourished meal.
Every August Bishop hosts a community event known as the “Back to School Bash” where Greater Love Church, Love in Action, A Healthy Smile, give book bags, school supplies, dental supplies to children in the local community. In 2019, Colgate Dental van partnered with him and children in the community received free dental screening. Gifts and prizes were also given to the parents and children.
Bishop Spencer was a frequent guest on “Ask the Pastor,” a local and sometimes national broadcast where viewers are allowed to call in and ask Pastors questions about the Bible and their natural and spiritual lives. Bishop Spencer has a local television show on CW22.
Bishop Spencer is the author of the book, “The Power of Forgiveness.” He wrote and produced his first single, “Give it to God” which is being played on Rejoice radio stations all over the country.
The Lord allowed Bishop Spencer to launch out and minister a revival in Joinville, Brazil and a “Healing Crusade” in Manteo, NC.
God has sent Bishop Spencer on a mission to preach, to teach, and to disciple. We are not a Church where it is Church as usual. We are on a mission for Jesus Christ to reach souls and preach his gospel.
Bishop has a motto, “Don’t worry, If you see something that you can fix, do it. If you can’t do anything about it, why worry, Give it to God!
