A man after God's own heart. A visionary of the gospel, called, anointed and equipped by God to do kingdom work. Pastor Babers accepted the call from God in November of 1982. He is the founder and organizer of Parkview Missionary Baptist Church which he started in 1988 with a bible study in his home. In 2015, the church was renamed Parkview Christian Life Center.It was a small beginning, in a small town with one member and now it has grown to approximately 1200 plus. Pastor Babers was born in Union Springs, Alabama to James and Thelma Babers. He was born on his mother's birthday May 31– a day he feels blessed to have shared with her. He was educated in the Polk County School System in Haines City, Florida. Under the guidance and direction of Pastor Babers, Haines City and the surrounding areas have a free health clinic for the uninsured and under insured that operates out of the church's outreach center. This ministry also gives clothing and food to those that are in need of help. Pastor Babers is a true visionary seeking to do the will of God. Not only has the Parkview Christian Life Center gone from a single wide trailer to a new sanctuary of over 30,000 sq. feet, but under his leadership, Parkview Christian Life Center has a worldwide television ministry which broadcast as the "Word Of Excellence" on various networks. More importantly, through his ministry, many souls have been saved and many lives changed for the better. Pastor Babers currently serves as the president of the Polk County Non-Denominational Ministerial Alliance. He recently founded H. L. Babers Sr. Ministries. He also is the founder for the organization Men That Lead International LLC.  Its goals are to teach men how to be better fathers, husbands, brothers, and better men of the living God! He is grounded in his relationship with God which shows forth in the relationship he has with his family, church and community. Truly Parkview Christian Life Center is blessed to have a Godly overseer teaching and preaching and most of all living the Word of God! With a Shepherd like this, it's no wonder his congregation is united with the vision...
