Elder Earl A. Hurling Senior Pastor
I have truly been inundated by the blessings of God, which I don’t deserve, but for which I am truly grateful. I accepted Christ in August of 1995. I received the call to minister to God’s people at Holy Temple of Faith Church of God in Christ in October 2015, while serving as Associate and Youth Pastor of the Faith Clinic Church of God in Christ, in Detroit, Mi. Under the leadership of Administrative Assistant Zachary N. Hicks.
My wife Deirdre and I, worked tirelessly in youth ministry at Faith Clinic, however, whatever Deirdre and I found our hands to do to build the Kingdom of God and bring glory to His name that is what we did.
I serve as a full time Pastor along with working in the capacity of Supervisor for Great Lakes Water Authority, all while furthering my Christian Education.
I have known Deirdre for 31 years. Deirdre has been my partner in marriage and ministry for 22 years and we are beyond blessed and honored to be the parents of 6 amazing children. Sha’leasha, Charlene, Ty’Shanna, Antonio, Angelo and A’Leah who are truly an inheritance from the Lord.
I strive to empower all God’s people. Whether it be through preaching and/or teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to providing Higher Education to the community, to providing eyeglasses, to feeding those in need of food to clothing, mentoring and counseling. Whatever my Wife and I can do to better the life of someone else’s in the Body of Christ, brings joy to our hearts.
I know that I can never repay God for all that He has done for me, but as long as there remains breath in my body I will “Bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall continually be in my mouth”.


Missionary Deirdre L. Hurling, First Lady
Executive Administration Assistant
First and foremost, I love the Lord with every Fiber of my being. I am a devout Wife, Mother, First Lady, and Executive Administrative Assistant to Pastor Earl A. Hurling, the love of my life, I have been blessed tremendously with 6 successful, anointed, gifted and talented children, Sha’leasha, Charlene, Ty’Shanna, Antonio, Angelo and A’Leah, along with a host of the spiritual children. I also serve as an independent research contractor, specializing in quantitative and qualitative research for both the media and political sectors. In this role, I have collaborated with Fortune 500 companies as well as the US government. Whether I am serving a radio station, a TV station, a periodical or some other organization, I go to great lengths to ensure the accuracy of the information that I gather, whereby ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC, and the Associated Press have all entrusted me to continually conduct and complete various projects.
In addition to my work as an Independent Research Contractor, I absolutely love teaching, educating and empowering God’s people. I adore children and Senior Citizens. I am an Entrepreneur, Soul Practitioner, Motivational Speaker, Mentor, Life Coach, and Community Consultant, guiding those around me to realize the impact that faith, hope, and love can make on their lives. To unwind, I enjoy reading and singing. And with any other time I have, I serve as a Business Consultant for Non-Profit groups.
