I am Michael Joe Harvell, Pastor of Grace Place Community Church and Founder And Director of Grace Place Ministries in Greer South Carolina.  I am the very blessed husband of an incredible woman and close personal friend named Joy.  We are the proud parents of two amazing and fast growing girls:  Grace and Hope!

I love what I do – because everyday of my life, I get to get up and do what I was created, called and gifted to do!  MINISTRY FULFILLS ME!

My goal with this blog is to share, encourage and motivate “GRACE” Living!

When I am not at church doing ministry – you can probably find me somewhere out in the wind riding my Harley Davidson 08 Heritage Softail which I lovingly named Visitation!

  1. Pastor, Pastor, Pastor!!!! As always, you are moving things and preaching in all the right directions!!!!! A couple weeks ago, I wanted to note in your blog how you were better therapy than any therapist could ever be. (Your hourly rate should be just as billable.) (lol) I would have mentioned it sooner but I was too worried about finding the right words to say or sounding something less than smart. Since you mentioned it in service Wednesday night, I thought I would humor you with the “coincidence” You and God do that to me almost every time you preach! Coincidence, I think not! Pastor, I hear your words, I feel them and I am now learning how to live those words out. Be patient, for you may not see results in your followers as fast as you can preach, however, even you said that to truly change it is from the inside and seen on the outside. Change on the inside is sometimes quiet, intimate and slow. I believe that as you continue to minister to your followers they will show you what you are living and preaching to see! In order to grow out we all need to grow in. As we all become strong we can then help find the weak and bring them home. You continue to touch my heart with his words and grow my faith. My faith grows my trust and in return I am learning the joy of happiness through Jesus Christ. Love in God’s way, Eugenia.

  2. michael joe my name is michael fazio and i have attended you chuch a lot latley and it is a joy hearing you preach. when i walk out the door i feel so much better about my day and it makes me feel so much better about myself and my salvation. Melanie and reggie page are my neighbors and they told me about coming to Northwood. I went one sunday and you came in wearing blue jeans and said that if someone didnt like me wearing them than you can get up and walk out. you preach in a way that i can understand. When i attend your church it makes me feel like i can say that i am a christian and not be ashamed.
    Just wanted to thank you for every thing you and and remember
    Phil 4:13 i can do all things through Christ that gives me strengh.
    thank you
