Pastor Ford wants us to realize that our current condition is not our conclusion. That’s because our problems are not problems, but rather platforms. And our misery is not misery, but ministry. Our trials are for the purpose of learning how to trust.
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.
