As followers of Jesus, we sometimes attach the ideas of poverty and spirituality to each other. But today, Pastor Ford will help us understand that those two descriptions aren’t synonymous and they don’t belong together. He explains that his job is to separate those two terms for us. And our job is to interpret what he’s saying, while digging into the scriptures to determine whether or not he’s telling us what God’s Word says.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
