Creflo Dollar is the founder and senior pastor of World Changers Church International (WCCI) in College Park,
Georgia, which serves nearly 30,000 members; World Changers Church-New York, which hosts over 6,000 worshippers
each week; and a host of satellite churches located throughout the U.S. As mandated by God, Creflo Dollar’s
goal is to establish 500 satellite churches around the world. With 30 years in ministry, Creflo Dollar is committed to bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to people all over the world, literally changing the world one person at a time.
A native of College Park, Georgia, Creflo Dollar received the vision for World Changers Ministries Christian
Center in 1986. He held the church’s first worship service in the cafeteria of Kathleen Mitchell Elementary School, in
College Park, with only eight people in attendance. Over the years, the ministry grew rapidly and was later renamed World
Changers Church International. The congregation moved from the cafeteria to a modest-sized chapel, later adding a weekly radio
broadcast and four services each Sunday. On December 24, 1995, WCCI moved into its present location—the 8,500-seat sanctuary
known as the World Dome. At a cost of nearly $18 million, the World Dome was built without any bank financing.
The construction of the World Dome is a testament to the miracle-working power of God, and remains a model of debt-freedom
that ministries all over the world emulate.
Tony Brazelton, along with his wife, Cynthia Brazelton, pastor Victory Christian Ministries, International (“VCMI”), a growing, thriving, multi-racial, non-denominational, Bible believing, Bible teaching church in the DC metropolitan area. With four locations, in Suitland and Waldorf, MD; Washington, DC; and Woodbridge, VA, VCMI is positioned to spread the Gospel throughout the metropolitan area.
God has called Tony not only to serve as pastor of a local church but also to help other pastors and church leaders
maximize the call of God on their lives. He and Cynthia accomplish this through Covenant Connections International (CCI),
with close to fifty ministries under their spiritual guidance.
The vision that God has imparted in his heart is to bring people to a place where they are no longer just singing,
reading, and hearing about the power of God, but they are manifesting the power of God in their everyday lives.
Tony believes that ANYTIME you can see the Word of God, hear the Word of God, and understand the Word of God, you can
be changed into the Word you see, hear, and understand. Once you are changed, you can then strengthen the brethren and
boldy declare: AS HE (JESUS) IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD (1John 4:17).
George M. Matthews, II
George M. Matthews, II is senior pastor and founder of New Life Interfaith Ministries, Inc., Bessemer, Alabama.
He is ordained, licensed, and has pastored churches in the Pentecostal and Baptist denominations.
Pastor Matthews received a charge and commission from the Lord to begin instructing and building up the body of
Christ in the area of “the unity of the Faith,” that unity which exists corporately in Christ.
Pastor Matthews believes the kingdom of God on earth is comprised of a conglomeration of all Christian faiths,
and for this purpose, the Church should emphasize its commonality in the Lord, rather than the lesser areas of
doctrinal differences. The scope of his “interfaith” ministry is to develop Believers in the likenesses of
Christ, irrespective of denominational differences.
Pastor Matthews and his wife, Judith C. Matthews, have two sons, Oscar and George III, and one daughter, Brianna.
