Manassas, VA – Dr. James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicago, IL, will address the Sunday Morning Worship Service at NRB 2011 on February 28th.

“With a winsome combination of intensity, compassion, and biblical fidelity, James MacDonald draws you into the Word of God to be changed by it,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.

Dr. MacDonald has committed his entire life to proclaiming the truth of God’s transforming power. As a pastor, author, Bible teacher, speaker, friend, and family man, Dr. MacDonald ignites a bold passion for God in every avenue of influence.

He is the founding senior pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel, one of the fastest growing multi-site churches in the Chicago area.  Through Dr. MacDonald’s leadership, by God’s grace, Harvest Bible Fellowship was formed in 2000 as a church planting ministry. It has since planted more than 50 churches across North America and around the world.

Dr. MacDonald is the author of several books including Lord, Change My Attitude, Gripped by the Greatness of God, Downpour, and most recently, When Life is Hard.  In addition, Dr. MacDonald is a Bible teacher on Walk in the Word, a daily 30-minute radio broadcast heard on over 1,030 outlets.  Walk in the Word’s mission is to stir excitement in the people of God, about the Word of God, through the proclamation of truth. He regularly speaks at Bible and pastors’ conferences throughout the world.

Born in London, Ontario, Dr. MacDonald received a D.Min. from Phoenix Seminary with his doctoral research in the area of ministry to men, which was developed into a curriculum called Men at War
