After receiving the Holy Ghost, the following day, he began his journey as a servant for the Lord. In 1978 he was ordained a Minister. In 1979 while listening to the radio, he heard the Whole Truth Radio Broadcast which was aired from the sanctuary of The Church in the Lord Jesus Christ in Darlington, South Carolina where the late Bishop L. Hunter was the Pastor. Minister Hernandez would travel by car, bus and airplane to attend services. After a few years there, he began having bible studies in his home in Miami. While only a couple of people were visiting, he continued to preach the word and witness to the souls that hungered for fulfillment. At times, there would only be a few, but the Lord was always in the midst. One by one they came and the congregation began to grow. By this time, he had converted his home into the place of worship. In 1986 he was ordained an Elder and continued travelling around the United States and Mexico encouraging brethren to continue to seek the Lord. In 1987, he met Sister Lisa, in Mexico, who three years later became his wife.

Together, Bishop and his wife continued to work and more souls began to be drawn in. Bishop Hernandez and Elder John Duran are also reponsible for the establishing of Apostolic Day. This event which started back in 1998 is held yearly and features seminars, worship services, youth events and leadership meetings. In 1996 after much hard work, the Lord blessed Bishop Hernandez and his congregation with a building for worship. Since then, Bishop Hernandez has continued to labor in the vineyard of the Lord. He has taught, encouraged, and helped the saints of God everywhere he has gone. Bishop Hernandez has taught his congregation how to love one another by being an example. He has taught us how to win souls and how to guide them to continue in the ways of God. He has given everything he has to the works of the Lord; therefore, the Lord has blessed him greatly. He is the father of four beautiful children: Joel, William, Edith, and Stephanie.  In 2003, Bishop was led to continue working for the Lord in the Okeechobee and Fort Pierce areas. Let us continue to pray for Bishop M.J. Hernandez and his family so that the Lord may continue to use him to be an encouragement to others.
