ABOUT THE AUTHOR
FOUNDER/CREATOR, DNA OF A LEADER
LEAD PASTOR, CHICAGO TABERNACLE
Pastor Al and his wife Chrissy were both born and raised in New York City. Pastor Al, born of Cuban parents, was headed for a promising career as a professional baseball player when the Lord revealed Himself to him at the age of seventeen on a baseball field. After being drafted by a major league baseball team and playing college baseball, Pastor Al began attending the Brooklyn Tabernacle and soon felt God calling him to the ministry. In 1990, he attended Bible college and soon thereafter began serving in full-time ministry.
Chrissy, the daughter of Pastor Jim and Carol Cymbala, founding pastors of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, always had a love for music, like her mother. Although she loved the Lord since she was a child, Chrissy strayed from the Lord during her teenage years. Her testimony has encouraged many as it is found in her book, Girl in the Song, as well as her father’s book, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. God called Chrissy into full-time ministry at the age of twenty, directing music at a Bible college in New England.
In 2002, Pastor Al, Chrissy, and their three children – Susie, Annie, and Tommy, moved to Chicago when they felt God leading them to pioneer a church on the North Side of the city, leading to the birth of the Chicago Tabernacle. Pastor Al and Chrissy have a heart to serve others into greatness and to see them become all that God has called them to be.
