Our elder based leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus, the Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ. In addition to the senior pastor, HCAssembly serves this body with two biblically qualified elders.

HCAssembly Campus Pastor Ernest Dailey

At an early age, Pastor Ernest possessed a deep interest in the preaching and teaching of the Bible, and Who God is. At the age of 7, Ernest was convicted of his need to accept Jesus as his Savior, and was baptized into Christ.
However, there were experiences that brought much pain to Ernest, and to many members of his family. Instead of seeking the mercies and comforts of God, Ernest sought escape through unhealthy relationships, worldly pleasures, and even crime. He eventually became bitter, and angry towards God, for allowing the evils that caused this pain. Eventually, Ernest turned his back on God; he stopped believing the Creator of the universe was loving, and that the Bible was true.
But through it all, God patiently worked to demonstrate His loving kindness towards Ernest, and his family. The LORD provided him with a clearer picture of the divine nature, and how He (God) deals with sin, and sinners. Through His unfailing love, God led Ernest back to his first love – Jesus Christ. One of Pastor Ernest’s favorite Bible passages is: “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)
The LORD has given Pastor Ernest countless blessings, such as helping him earn a Bachelor degree in Theology, and a minor in biblical languages.
But after his salvation, the greatest gifts God has given Ernest are his wife, Felicia – whom he married on August 9, 1997 – and their bright, lively daughter.
The Bible demonstrates that earth is in its last days. No one knows when Christ will return. Thus, Pastor Ernest seeks to serve others in a way that helps them have a clearer understanding of God, and an experience of faith that prepares them for the new heaven, and new earth.
