 Jim Cymbala - Interview Highlight

[b]What led you to come in the early 1970's to what was then a struggling run-down, inner city church?[/b]
I was born and raised in Brookyln. When I got out of college, I worked in the business world for a while and then was married to a minister's daughter. Through a long series of events, the Lord brought me into the ministry without going to seminary. But, through alot of reading and training that continues to this day, I try to learn about God. My teachers have been people like R.A. Torrey, Charles Spurgeon, Charles Finney, Dwight L. Moody and G. Campbell Morgan.

My wife, Carol and I began ministry with the Tabernacle in 1971. She couldn't read or write music, but she has a tremendous gift of playing, perfect pitch, and the perfect ear for music. Her music, chorally, is being sung around the country. People are performing music from the albums the choir makes. Carol still cannot read or write musicm and I still have not gone to Bible school. So, when God has used us in any way, it reinforces the biblical principle that He uses the weak things and the foolish things. [i]He is not looking for ability but for availability.[/i]

I kinda feel like that also sometimes, that my mentors and teachers are mostly dead men who wrote phenominal writings under the leading of the Spirit of God. I want to get more into G. Campbell Morgan, I have noticed his name quoted a few times on these forums even.
