Pastor AJ is the Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Center Chicago. Pastor AJ came to a saving knowledge of the Lord in 1982. He originally held a prominent role in Special Forces in Nigeria, but forsook it all to pursue the call of God upon his life. Pastor AJ has been in ministry for about 24 years and has passionately served the Chicagoland area through HCC for the last fifteen years, with an emphasis on fasting and prayer in seeking to reach the unsaved and unchurched. Pastor AJ believes that if the grass is green, the sheep will come and lay down. The grass is the level of the Word of God – not the sweetness of the Word but the content of the quality. Prayer does to the Word what dry wood does to a fire. The strength of the Word of God is from the power the Holy Spirit gives. Pastor AJ holds a Masters of Divinity from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois. He and First Lady Sis. Ranti have been married for 20 years and have three daughters and one son.
