In July 1991, Fernandez began to demonstrate his faith in God and a commitment to “walk by faith” in every area of life when, along with his wife, Carol, he founded the Plantation Worship Center in the cafeteria of a local elementary school in south Florida with only 11 members. Now known as The Faith Center, the church makes its home in the former “Sunrise Musical Theater” where its more than 10,000 members embrace a mission of “Reaching the World for Jesus,” and empowering people to live a lifestyle of faith every day.
Gifted with a strong ability to deliver the Word with clarity and in a practical manner, Fernandez flows in a strong prophetic anointing as he teaches. A visionary who believes it is God’s will for everyone to prosper and be in health, Fernandez is committed to helping educate people to what God’s Word has to say about living and walking in victory. Part of that commitment is demonstrated through his founding of The University of Fort Lauderdale, a non-denominational Christian institute fully approved by the Florida Commission of Independent Education and fully accredited by Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS). The university, which was established to advance Christian education and promote leadership in both secular and non-secular areas, offers degrees on the associate, bachelors, masters and doctoral levels.
The Henry B. Fernandez Institute for Learning was also established by Fernandez to offer biblical courses to ministers and lay leaders who may not be seeking a degree, but desire a solid foundation in the understanding of God’s word for evangelizing, mentoring, and inspirational leadership.
Although his professional career began in the travel industry, Fernandez developed his business and financial acumen in the corporate arena. It is those skills, competence and proficiencies that Fernandez now uses as a foundation to assist in building the Kingdom of God. Henry Fernandez is gifted in the areas of Faith, Family & Finances and often sought after as a motivational speaker for conferences and television programs.
Fernandez is the author of twelve books with his latest release, “Faith, Family & Finances,” #1 on Amazon Best Sellers List. Henry Fernandez resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL. with his wife, Carol Fernandez, as co-pastor of The Faith Center and they are the parents of two sons, Seion-Zane and Elijah-Zane.
