Jim Cymbala is the Pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church in downtown Brooklyn. Brooklyn Tabernacle, a congregation of reveal thousand people, has planted churches in other needy areas of the city. As they trained pastors and sent them out with small groups of workers from the congregation, a replication of the work in downtown Brooklyn was begun. Over the years other works have been established in Haiti, Dominican Republic, Israel, Guyana, and the Philippines.
Jim is also the author of the bestselling titles Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire; Fresh Faith; Fresh Power; Breakthrough Prayer; The Life God Blesses; The Church God Blesses; and The Promise of God's Power. He lives in New York City with his wife, Carol, who directs the Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. They have three grown children.
