Thank you for joining me and the Mantle of Helps on the world-wide web. It is exciting to minister to you through this vast information network. My hope is that our website will be a valuable tool in providing spiritual wisdom and practical application for serving in ministry. As I have traveled to churches throughout the States and across denominational lines, what has consistently been placed on my heart is to assist ministries in two things:

  1. Positioning people for service
  2. Empowering people for purpose
The Mantle of Helps is committed to first position people for service through spiritual gift awareness and a series of workshops (e.g. “Serving in the Church”, “Leading by Example” and “Protecting the Anointing”). Secondly, to empower people for purpose through a workshop entitled “Writing the Vision.” This workshop is designed to establish a written vision for your life that will set you on the path of purpose.

I encourage you to browse our website and discover your ministry gift by taking the spiritual gift assessment.

Lastly, it is truly an honor and privilege to contribute to your spiritual growth and personal development. I hope to hear from you soon.

Remember this, “Everybody ends up somewhere in life, but you can end up there on purpose.”

Serving Faithfully,

Crosby E. Harris, Jr.
