Hancock dedicated his life to the Lord at sixteen years of age. He had many musical talents, a very giving heart, and never desired anything in return. One of his main hobbies was reading and even though he lived in Charlotte, a piece of his heart always rested by the water in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, but his first love was always the people of the church. He was mentored by his father, the late R.L. Hancock from Huntington, West Virginia to establish the work of building a ministry, of the Apostolic faith, in Charlotte, NC. Together they faced many hardships and made many sacrifices to ensure the work was fulfilled. With the ministry being instituted for 34 years and working diligently with his father, he had the dream to build a new facility, now located on 600 East 36th Street in Charlotte, NC. With the passing of Bishop R.L. Hancock, Bishop H.P. Hancock became the watchman on the wall. He was assisted by his best friend the late Clarence Cox for 42 years, who was the Associate Pastor of the church. Bishop John “Stacy” Major also played a great role in the effectiveness of the ministry for over 30 years, along with the many other ministers and deacons who are still assisting and laboring in the church today. With the great example preceding him, he sought the Lord and carved a pathway that remained consistent with the truth of baptism in Jesus Name and being filled with the Holy Ghost. The ministry has now been established for a total of 69 years due to the diligence and sacrifice of this great man of God.
