August 20, 1963 marked the official beginning of Greater Morning View under the supervision of Rev. R. L. Coleman Pastor of the True Right Church. The church met in the home of Rev. and Sis. R.D. Holley located at 8910 S. Mackinaw, Chicago IL. The Church has moved twice since then, in 1963 the church moved to 9001 S. Green Bay Ave. Later in 1973 the church moved to its present location 2335 E. 100th Street Chicago, IL 60617.
It was at this time that the church purchased the property for $35,000.00 with the hopes and dreams of doing kingdom business. In 1983 the church moved closer to that dream by paying off the mortgage and “Owing no man nothing” Romans 13:8 (KJV).Greater Morning View has had many Great men of God to come and help move the church in the last forty-five years Rev. Holley (1963-1964), Rev. Robinson (1964 -1968), Rev. Jones (1968 - 1976), Rev. Harmon (02/77 – 12/77), Rev. Riley (1978 – 1996) Rev. Echols (1996-2004) and now God has given the mantel of Authority and Anointing to his young Joshua, the Right Reverend Tyrone Harrington (2004 – present).
Rev. Harrington was first elected Pastor by God and then by a committee of deacons, trustees and members in December of 2005. Since that time the church moved forward and has not looked back. Pastor Harrington started in January 2006 and the church membership has grown in spirit and in size and God is still adding to the kingdom daily.God has blessed Greater Morning View to become a ministry that thinks out of the box, and through this thinking we have learned how to become “Our Brothers Keeper”.
Since the installation of our Pastor the Right Reverend Bishop Tyrone Harrington the church has hosted several community meeting with the efforts to stop the violence in the area. The church has hosted job fairs with the hope of every member being employed. Health fairs with the hopes of every member being a healthy member. Summer youth programs, “SAFE HAVEN” and Bishop’s mentoring program, Time Out which gives youth who are out of school a safe place to be where they can learn and have fun. Turkey giveaway where families can have a Thanksgiving dinner prepared for their love ones and Toy giveaway’s where no child is without a gift under their Christmas tree. We believe that if you take a little and place it in the right hands God will bring the increase.
