Dr. Jesse Duplantis

Jesse Duplantis, minister of the Gospel, motivational speaker, television personality, and best-selling author, has been in full-time ministry since 1978 and is the founder of Jesse Duplantis Ministries, located in the Greater New Orleans area of south Louisiana in the United States of America. With over four decades of sharing his unique blend of humor and faith around the world, generations of believers have been inspired by his messages and countless numbers have come to know Jesus Christ as Savior through his ministry.

Known for his unflinching, status-quo-breaking messages and humorous take on experiences in the life of the believer, Jesse continues to draw large audiences of believers through social media, television, and meetings held around the world. With speaking engagements booked years in advance, Jesse Duplantis continues to keep an intense traveling schedule, flying throughout the United States and the world preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With no booking agents pursuing meetings for him and no set fees imposed upon churches for speaking engagements, Jesse chooses his outreach meetings based on the same two criteria he always has: invitations that come in and prayer over each one. This uncommon way of scheduling in today’s world means Jesse’s many followers may find him speaking in some of the largest churches and venues in America and the world, as well as a great many small and growing congregations, too. No church is too big or small for the Holy Spirit, as he says.

Side by side with his wife Cathy Duplantis, the co-founder and chief of staff of Jesse Duplantis Ministries and the senior pastor of Covenant Church in Destrehan, Louisiana, Jesse continues to fulfill his life’s calling by daily taking up the Great Commission of Jesus Christ: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Through social media, television broadcasts, books, and other ministry products, as well as through many evangelistic meetings, the JDM website, the JDM app, and Voice of the Covenant magazine, Jesse Duplantis continues to see growth in his ministry and expand each year while maintaining his roots. Jesus is the center of his life. The salvation of lost people and the growth of believers is the purpose of his ministry. And for both he and his wife, every day is another day to “Reach People and Change Lives, One Soul at a Time.”

Samuel Rodriguez

Samuel Rodriguez, lead pastor of New Season, one of America’s most influential mega churches according to Newsmax, is the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, one of the world’s largest Christian organizations. Rodriguez stands recognized by CNN, FOX News, Univision and Telemundo as America’s most influential Latino/Hispanic faith leader. Charisma magazine named him one of the 40 leaders who changed the world. The Wall St. Journal named him one of the top 12 Latino leaders and he was the only faith leader on that list. He has been named among the “Top 100 Christian Leaders in America” (Newsmax 2018) and nominated as one of the “100 most influential people in the world” (TIME 2013). Rodriguez has advised Presidents Bush, Obama, and Trump and frequently consults with members of Congress to advance life, religious liberty and biblical justice initiatives including immigration and criminal justice reform. He is the best-selling author of “Be Light” and executive producer of three films including BREAKTHROUGH. Rodriguez is the recipient of the Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Award presented by the Congress of Racial Equality.

Apostle Leroy Thompson Sr.

Apostle Leroy Thompson Sr. is a native of Louisiana and the Pastor of Word of Life Christian Center and Chief overseer of Leroy Thompson Ministerial Association (LTMA). He accepted Christ as his personal Savior in September of 1972. In October of that same year he was water baptized.  From that moment on he was a man after God’s own heart. On December 30, 1973 he was called into the ministry to preach God’s Word.  Apostle Thompson became an ordained minister on May 24, 1975.

In the fall of 1983, he was baptized with the Holy Ghost and his life catapulted.  Knowing who he was in Christ, what belongs to him, and what he can do in Christ birth forth a new dimension in his ministering to God’s people.  In 1984, he was instructed by the Spirit of God to change the name of the church from Mt. Zion Baptist Church (a 104-year-old traditional Baptist Church) to Word of Life Christian Center.  He began teaching people how to live the life of faith; how to walk by faith and not by sight, how to be well and not sick, how to live and not die, how to keep the devil under their feet, how to live the victorious abundant life in Christ Jesus and how to be led by the Spirit of God.  Church membership at that time was approximate 75—the majority being children.  Membership today has increased to over 2,000 and counting. It was here that he knew he was being used to “CHANGE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH THE WORD OF GOD.”

Apostle Thompson also started Ever Increasing Word Ministries (EIWM) as another avenue for God to reach His people. Through EIWM, he is connected with over 5,000 partners who faithfully follow the ministry, and it’s growing daily. EIWM allows Apostle Thompson to be able to impart into the people of God on a consistent basis.

In 1993, following God’s instructions, Apostle Thompson started Ever Increasing Word Training Center. Apostle Thompson wanted to be able to pass along to others ministers the things he has learned over the years and the experience God’s anointing has brought into his life.

With a strong calling from God, Apostle Thompson travels the world taking the message of financial freedom to the Body of Christ by holding Money Cometh to You Conferences. He truly believes that God’s financial abundance is for every believer. He is the author of  several books including the best seller “Money Cometh to the Body of Christ.” He not only believes, but he also knows from experience that the key to a successful ministry is the combination of praying in the Spirit; living and teaching the Word of Faith; and following after the leadership of the Holy Ghost.

He has been happily married to his lovely wife, Mrs. Carolyn A. Thompson, for over 40 years.  They have four children—Leroy Jr.(Shantel), Shauna (Jesse), Donavan and Darnell (Deirdre)—who serve full time in the ministry along with their parents.
