Heaven Bound Ministries, Inc. is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization incorporated in the state of West Virginia and governed by a Board of Directors whose sole purpose is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ via various musical concerts, i.e. Southern Gospel, Praise and Worship, Patriotic, live ‘on stage’ Christian musical presentations, i.e. HE’S ALIVE! and the spoken word through out the tri-state area of West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Heaven Bound Ministries, Inc. originally began when Mrs. Doris Estep, Mrs. Brenda Hetzel and Mrs. Jeannie Pierce Waychoff, all who attended the same Baptist church in Wheeling WV, in the mid 1990’s, began singing Southern Gospel music as the trio called Heaven Bound. The ladies loved the Lord, each other and music so it only seemed natural that God had brought them together.
His vision for Heaven Bound was much greater than theirs because He grew Heaven Bound into a 20+ member traveling singing group called Heaven Bound Et Al. He then enlarged the group to a 200+ member non-denominational organization called Heaven Bound Ministries. In the late 1990’s, the formal incorporation of Heaven Bound Ministries, Inc. was accomplished; thus, opening the door for the organization to cover the total responsibility of producing and directing their ministry events, including HE’S ALIVE!, the musical Passion Play that has become an annual Resurrection Season tradition in the Ohio Valley. At last count, the Heaven Bound Family’s enrollment through the years has included nearly 1000 individuals!! Still to this very day, the sole purpose of the ministry organization is to glorify our triune God with every lyric, every song, every word! God has so blessed this ministry organization so that we might bless others!!
