MHCC Place History

2013 N. Capitol Ave. in San Jose, CA is now the new home of Mission Harvest Christian Church. What we enjoy today is a 3 year dream in the making - a House built for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

MHCC was founded by Pastor Peter and Leony Ubaldo in August 1, 2010. The Lord called Pastor Peter Ubaldo to plant a missionary church. He was the associate pastor of Harvest International for 19 years. We first met in the Ubaldo residence. About 40 people attended our first Sunday meeting, all family and close friends. After 2 meetings, complaints from neighbors forced us to find a new sanctuary.

On the 3rd week, we moved and held our 3rd service at MITC building in Madeline Dr., San Jose, CA owned by the Mendoza family. The worship service was held on one of the school class rooms. Every Friday night, the room is converted into a church sanctuary. After two months, the service was moved to an adjacent room on the same building that is able to accommodate 70 people.

In October 31, 2010, Pastor Peter and Leony Ubaldo were officially ordained as ministers of the Word of God under the umbrella of International Pentecostal Holiness Church by Bishop Chris Thompson and Bishop Garry Bryant of IPHC. The church vision is to “Love God and Love People”. The church goal is to win the unchurched, disciple them and send them. One of the focus is also to help missionary works and plant churches where there is a need.

The membership quickly grew to more than 100 after only 1.5 years. The church became a part of the Pacific Realm District of IPHC in January 2012 under the leadership of Apostle Greg Hood. Then a prophetic word was released by Apostle Greg in April 2012 that MHCC must find a bigger home to be able to handle its fast growth. 

With 100+ members, MHCC finally found a beautiful new home here in this sanctuary, in San Jose, CA. What a great testimony to God’s faithfulness. He called us and planted us here. We believe in the vision He gave us and we are now privileged to celebrate an almost 3 years of ministry here in the Bay Area as well as in the Philippines
