In March 2002, Bishop Dr. Kevin M. Aiken held an informational meeting with a few believers in faith at the Chestnut Hill Hotel located on Germantown Avenue. It was in a small banquet room where Dr. Aiken presented the vision that The Lord had revealed to him. He shared that the Lord led him to organize a place of worship inspired by the foundational scripture: "true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth" (John 4:23 KJV).
Dr. Aiken held a second meeting in April 2002 where he shared the church’s name, mission, vision and purpose, thus, Heart of Worship Restoration Center was birthed. All who felt led by the Lord to walk with Dr. Aiken made a commitment to serve and assist in the building of Heart of Worship Restoration Center.
On Sunday, June 9, 2002 Heart of Worship Restoration Center held its first official worship service in the Prince Hall Elementary school located in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia. Discipleship training classes were held each Sunday for a total of thirteen weeks and were developed and taught by Dr. Aiken to provide a foundational understanding of the biblical doctrine that would govern the operation Heart of Worship. The discipleship classes focused on biblical principles such as: Baptism, Communion, Stewardship, Prayer, Praise and Worship and Spiritual Gifts.
On Sunday, September 8, 2002 the ministry was dedicated during its celebratory birthing service which was celebrated as a "Service of Triumph."
He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people, and they did so. They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
