THERE'S A PLACE FOR YOU
Pastor John Threlkeld has seen the world and the war inside of Christianity. Originally saved in 1982, John was called to the mission field while attending the Southern Baptist Men’s Convention in Alton, Illinois. After backsliding and becoming involved in Satanism and the occult, John found himself immersed in tarot cards, Ouija boards, spirit channeling, and other demonic practices.
In 1991, after living the life of an outlaw on the streets of Chicago, Jesus Christ got a hold of Pastor John Threlkeld. One year later, John received the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. Shortly following his conversion, he was called into the pastoral ministry. He married his wife Sherry in 2006 and they continue to serve together.
Prior to becoming the Senior Pastor of Immanuel Tabernacle on July 1, 2017, John served as worship leader in various Pentecostal churches for over 25 years. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Studies from The International College of Bible Theology.
The heart of this pastor is summed up in the lines of a song, “If just one more soul were to walk down the aisle, it will be worth every struggle it will be worth every mile; A lifetime of labor is still worth it all if it rescues just one more soul.”
Pastor John understands grace. His entire life is serves to testify to the grace of God. He desires to see every Christian living in the grace of God.
