Dr. Thompson was called by God to be a Pastor and Teacher.  The Lord has graciously placed an anointing upon him to teach with simplicity and with life changing power.  He is overwhelmed by God’s goodness in his life and ministry, and is pleased to be used by God.  He began his teaching ministry in July of 1989 while stationed overseas in Japan.  After returning to the states, he and his wife joined Church on the Rock where he was licensed and ordained in 1992 and 1994, respectively.   Dr .Thompson has served in many leadership positions.  He was the President of the Incirlik Christian Ministerial Alliance while stationed in Turkey.  Additionally, he served as the Assistant Pastor at the Base Chapel during that same tour.  One responsibility was to train other ministers to be effective preachers and leaders in the church. He was also privileged to serve on the Board of Elders at Christian Faith Assembly in Hainesport, New Jersey under the leadership and tutelage of Apostle Dr. Maurice Randolph and Rev. Dr. Kathleen Harris.  It was at Christian Faith Assembly that God made it very clear to Pastor Thompson that he was called to establish a Christ centered, spirit filled church, with an emphasis on a sound teaching ministry.    Dr. Thompson has been blessed to obtain a sound education.  In 1995 he met all requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion with a minor in Business Administration at Charleston Southern University in Charleston, S. Carolina – graduating Cum Laude.  He also earned a Master of Divinity degree at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in May 2004.  In December 2006, he earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, with a focus in Preaching and Leadership.  In January of 2012 he earned a Master of Science in Management degree with a concentration in Organizational Leadership from Wilmington University, where he serves as an Adjunct Professor.  Additionally, he is currently a student in the Doctor of Business Administration program at Wilmington University.    Dr. Thompson is committed to raising up believers that are strong in faith, mature in their walk, and are passionately following God’s will for their lives. The Lord has also given him a mandate to raise up strong leaders in the local church that will be sent out to serve faithfully in various parts of the larger body of Christ. He is very serious about the responsibilities that God has placed in his hands. With the help of the Lord and his anointed wife, Pastor Thompson fully expects to have a worldwide ministry that reaches untold millions. So in advance and in anticipation, he wants to be heard saying, “To God be the glory for the great things He has done.” Praise the Name of the Lord!
