J.S. Veal (Senior Pastor) knew as a young child, that he was called to the ministry. When he was born, the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and the doctors gave his family a grim prognosis. The family rallied in prayer and refused to let the enemy have victory. He was a fighter from the beginning! While just a young boy, people would often tell his mother that John was called to preach. He felt Gods hand on his life and he knew that he was special. In times of trouble, he knew that God was guiding and protecting him. At the age of 19, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and joined his local church. During his young adult years, his gift of prophecy caused his fellow brothers in Christ to ostracize him from their presence, which eventually led to Johns backsliding and return to the secular world. In 1998, John received a call from God giving him one last opportunity to choose to serve Him or to be left to his own devices and protection. John chose God. He has refused to look back. He has truly become a God chaser. God has mandated that he preach and teach to His people. On March 17, 2002 Pastor Veal established Enduring Faith Christian Center. Pastor Veals greatest desire is to preach the Word of God with power, love, understanding and compassion. Pastor J.S. Veal served as a Deacon for about 1 year at Grace and Truth A.O.H. Church in Chicago, then as an Associate Pastor at Speak the Word Christian Center for about 3 years. He received his Bachelors degree from Chicago State University in 1995 and a Masters Degree in Special Education from Dominican University in 1998.He is a certified teacher with the Chicago Board of Education.
