Ad Feedback

Pastor Wilfredo de Jesus, better known as "Pastor Choco," is one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people of 2013.

He has served as senior pastor of Chicago's New Life Covenant Church for more than a decade. With 14,000 members, it's the largest Assemblies of God Church in the United States and has 135 worldwide ministries.

Pastor Choco grew up in a rough Chicago neighborhood and his future didn't look promising. Then at 14 years old, his life turned around and he found his destiny.

His book, Amazing Faith, shares life stories that show no one is too lost or too hopeless for God's love. He talks about how to find God's purpose for your life.

Watch Reporter Charlene Israel's interview with Pastor Choco, on CBN News Channel Morning News, June 20.
