About Pastor Jim Cymbala
Jim Cymbala was born in Brooklyn, NY, where he enjoyed a successful career playing basketball in both high school and college. Upon graduation from the University of Rhode Island, he entered the business world and married his childhood sweetheart, Carol. Although unforeseen by them, it wasn’t long before God called them into ministry.
Arriving at The Brooklyn Tabernacle, they found a congregation of less than 20 people meeting in a rundown building located in an impoverished part of downtown Brooklyn. Over the years, God has shown his faithfulness to them and their congregation in many incredible ways. Their present campus includes a large renovated theater in downtown Brooklyn, where thousands of people come each week to hear the Good News of Jesus.
Jim is the author of several books, including Strong through the Storm; Spirit Rising; Breakthrough Prayer; and Fresh Wind Fresh Fire, which was named Christian book of the year. His wife Carol directs the six-time Grammy Award Winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, whose music has blessed people around the world.
