The DNA of a Leader contains life-changing, church-changing principles of discipleship that every one of us desperately needs in today's culture.  It's made a difference in my personal life.  It will make a difference in your life and church.

I drove home wishing I was a pastor again.  I knew things would have been different in my church if I could have taken my leaders through the DNA of a Leader. This discipleship process for those in public ministry at my church would have brought dramatic fruit! I can look back over the years of ministry and think of five or six moments where a teaching at a conference that changed everything for me. The DNA of a Leader was one of those events. I believe that you will leave this conference with the tools that will help you in your own life and in the ministry of the local church.

This course has taken our leadership to another level! The maps (personal and projects) have enabled us to become better stewards in every way. It is an excellent tool we plan to use to develop new leaders.

What makes DNA of a Leader so effective is it's the most holistic approach to leadership I’ve experienced. It is both practical and spiritual, always calling me back to the altar and then giving me the stewardship map to work out what I’ve heard from the Lord. As a leader, DNA of a Leader helps give structure to what the Lord has put in my heart, making it easier for me to accomplish more and communicate responsibilities and expectation better. Priorities are clearer and fewer things fall through the cracks. As a team leader, DNA of a Leader helps us succeed together because we all know what’s got to be done, individually and as a team. I can clearly communicate responsibilities and everyone understands their expectations. Because of it’s holistic approach, it's transformed my approach to leadership. DNA of a Leader has transformed the way I lead.

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.
