The Right Reverend Donald F Harvey, M.A.; M.Div; D.D.
Senior Chaplain of the College of Bishops of the Province.

Bishop Harvey is a member and the Chairman of the Society for Special Pastoral Intervention. During his 53 years of Ordained Ministry, Bishop Harvey was frequently involved in deliverance ministry, though rarely under that title.  While he has no formal training in this field, most of his experience has come from working at the pastoral level.  Now, in what some would call the twilight years of ministry, he has become increasingly aware of how intense is this spiritual struggle, and sadly, of how ill equipped so many are to engage in it.  Bishop Harvey sees this as one of his last major challenges and an opportunity to compensate for lost opportunities in the past.
