Bishop Dr. William L. Harris, Sr., is the pastor and founder of Victory Tabernacle Apostolic Church in Indianapolis, IN.  He has been pastoring just over 40 years and has been preaching more than 45 years.  Emerging in the ranks of holiness as a third generation apostolic, he has been committed to the call of God with a deep passion to reach the lost.  He was ordained as Bishop by the Apostolic Assemblies of Christ and received his Doctorate of Divinity from the Muskegon Bible Institute. Driven by his love for mankind, he has faithfully served and ministered in the communities of Indianapolis and was recognized by Mayor Greg Ballard in 2010 who declared December 28, 2010 as Bishop William L. Harris Sr. Day. From the time of the church’s inception, Bishop Harris has given himself over to outreach endeavors such as street meetings and ministering in the Marion County Jail and Pendleton Prison.  The Lord has opened doors for him to preach and teach in conferences, retreats, marriage classes, high schools, college campuses, and city events in Indianapolis and many other states. He is a visionary, a lover of truth and holiness and is known for standing for the Lord, resisting the temptation to succumb to the pressures and winds of change. Standing with this man of God is his wife of fifty-one years, First Lady Linda R. Harris. 

First Lady Linda R. Harris is an anointed, holy and gifted woman of God.  Her steadfast love for truth and holiness are evidenced in the example she leaves for all women far and near through her teachings during conferences, seminars, marriage classes and more.  She is the author of two books, “Who’s That Lady” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, both of which are instrumental tools for instruction in practical holiness and marriage.  She is the founder of ‘The Bold & Beautiful’ women’s conference and also hosts women’s retreats which are uplifting and inspiring for any woman seeking a closer walk with the Lord. Lady Harris started “Chili Monday”, one of the church’s initiatives to feed the hungry in the community each Monday.  Her administrative and spiritual gifts have been a true asset to the kingdom of God.  When the Lord called Bishop Harris to pastor and lead the Victory Tabernacle flock, He knew Lady Harris would be by his side, standing for truth and righteousness.  Without question, we are living in the last days, and the Lord has allowed Bishop and First Lady Harris to positively effect change, for such a time as this..
