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.
