About Bishop Clyde Harden

Bishop Clyde E. Harden Jr. is the founder and senior pastor of the New Destiny Church in Coldspring, Texas. Bishop Harden founded the New Destiny Fellowship Church in September 2010 on love, God’s word, and a passion for helping people. He believes in the empowerment of people therefore, his motto for New Destiny Fellowship Church is “Change your mind so that you can change the world.” Bishop Harden believes that when you start changing your mind about the way you think about your family, friends, food, finances, faith, and fun, you can then help someone else change through your spiritual commitment and personal relationship with God. The Bible says in Romans 12:8 not to be conformed to this world but is transformed by the renewing of our minds. He believes that once we transform Our Lives the world will follow.
