    Pastor James MacDonald

    Home · I'm New · Pastor James MacDonald

    James MacDonald (D. Min. Phoenix Seminary) is married to his high school sweetheart, Kathy, and both are from Ontario, Canada. He is the father of three grown children, two daughters-in-law, a son-in-law, and grandfather to five amazing grandsons. James’ ministry focuses on the unapologetic proclamation of God’s Word. In 1988, along with a small group of ministry partners, James and Kathy planted Harvest Bible Chapel which has grown to 13,000 people each weekend, meeting at seven locations across Chicagoland each weekend.  

    Walk in the Word, a Bible-teaching broadcast ministry, was established in 1997. The radio program reaches more than three million people daily, and the television audience extends around the world. In 2002, a church-planting ministry called Harvest Bible Fellowship was born and has established more than 90 churches across North America and around the world. James’ vision is for God to use Harvest Bible Fellowship to plant 1,000 churches by 2020.

    James’ extensive ministry also includes a training center for pastors, a year-round camp, a center for biblical counseling, a disaster recovery organization, and a Christian school—all used to reach more people with the life-changing message of the Gospel.  

    James is the author of several books including Vertical Church, Authentic, When Life is Hard, Always True, and most recently, Come Home.
