Pastor Jim Cymbala

Jim Cymbala is one of the most inspiring preachers of our time. Not only are his messages heartfelt and powerfully motiviating, but he is training a generation to trust in the process of prayer as we rely on the Holy Spirit to see us through life’s challenges.

His latest book is meant for those who are feeling battered and broken by the world and the problems so many are facing while feeling ill-equipped and isolated.

Storm: Hearing Jesus for the Times We Live In provides a grounding in Scripture to guide you in finding that safe haven in your relationship with Jesus Christ. The book also tells the story of how applying God’s Word has changed the lives of people who are in the community of faith at Pastor Cymbala’s church, Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York.

This week on Cradle My Heart Radio, Pastor Cymbala shares a beautiful encouragement to help you through the storm of abortion–whether you are facing a problem pregnancy, or whether you are struggling with abortion in your past. With the kindness and comfort based on the solid truth of Scripture, your heart will be blessed. He will also address other issues plaguing believers today.

From Jim Cymbala’s bio:

Pastor Jim Cymbala is a native New Yorker, raised in the borough of Brooklyn. His early love of basketball earned him a scholarship to the University of Rhode Island, where he became captain of the basketball team. After graduation, he immediately entered the business world and, soon after, he married his childhood sweetheart, Carol Joy Hutchins. Pastor Cymbala and Carol began their lives together and before long, though he did not have formal theological training, Pastor Cymbala felt a call to the ministry.

In the early 1970s Pastor Cymbala took over the leadership of The Brooklyn Tabernacle on Atlantic Avenue 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. No money was available for adequate salaries during most weeks in those early years, so Pastor Cymbala and Carol took second jobs and struggled to make ends meet both in the church and at home.

Today Pastor Cymbala oversees a congregation of several thousand people. Many of the inner- city problems are still there, but so is the congregation’s dependency upon the grace of God, who has raised up workers to direct outreach to children, women, men, youth, seniors, the homeless and people in shelters, among others. The Lord has blessed Pastor Cymbala and Carol with three children and six grandchildren, including the most recent addition, little Levi, who was adopted from Ethiopia. A more complete account of the early years of The Brooklyn Tabernacle is included in Pastor Cymbala’s book Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. Other books written by Pastor Cymbala include Fresh Faith; Fresh Power; Breakthrough Prayer; The Life God Blesses; The Church God Blesses; and The Promise of God’s Power.
