Pastor Jim Cymbala is a native New Yorker, raised in the borough of Brooklyn. In the early 1970s he took over the leadership of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in downtown Brooklyn. The small, struggling congregation numbered less than twenty people and met in a small, run-down building surrounded by the physical and moral blight of the inner city. Pastor Cymbala realized that it was a unique opportunity to see the power of the gospel of Christ in action by loving and ministering to all colors and kinds of people. Today, he oversees a congregation of several thousand people. The church is also home to the six time Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir that is directed by Carol Cymbala. Pastor Jim Cymbala is the author of several books including his newest book Spirit Rising. ward, California in 1978, a growing church of influence with more than fifty (50) active ministries, impacting hundreds weekly throughout Northern California.
