Pastor Harvey "Chip" Rice

Harvey Rice Jr., affectionately known as Chip, is a native of East Orange, NJ., and grew up in Salisbury, NC.  He is the son of Bishop Harvey & Mrs. Sadie Victoria Rice.

Pastor Rice was best known during his collegiate years as one of the hottest party DJ’s in the triad before giving his life to Jesus Christ on August 26, 1992. 

Recognizing his gifting, Pastor Rice, aka. The Minister of Music, stayed in the music field and started hosting WNAA’s morning program, “The First Light”.  His impact is both celebrated and riveting, as he seeks to reach all types of audiences. Young, old, various Races, saved and unsaved all tuned in to hear what Chip would say next.  His main goal has been and will always be to present Jesus Christ in a dynamic, yet fun and relevant way in the hopes that the listener will develop a greater relationship with God.

Pastor Rice has authored the book: The Cup: What They Probably Didn’t Tell You About Salvation.  This book talks about the temptations of Jesus and how they relate to us in today’s world.  It’s a great source of information and inspiration for Believers and the “Un-Churched”.  He also facilitates dynamic seminars such as: “The Purpose of Music”; and the challenging, eye-opening “Things you should know Before you take off your Underwear.” 

Pastor Rice is a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University (A&T) with a degree in Communications and Business Administration. He currently serves as the Executive Pastor of Maranatha Fellowship Church in High Point, NC, under the leadership of Apostle Otis Lockett Sr.

Pastor Rice is the proud husband of Thursday Rice and father of two beautiful children, Jasmine and Ethan.
