About James MacDonald

Pastor James MacDonald (D. Min. Phoenix Seminary) is married to his high school sweetheart, Kathy, and both are from Ontario, Canada. He is the father of three grown children, two daughters-in-law, a son-in-law, and grandfather to five amazing grandsons. James’ ministry focuses on the unapologetic proclamation of God’s Word. In 1988, along with a small group of ministry partners, James and Kathy planted Harvest Bible Chapel which has grown to thousands of people each weekend, meeting in multiple locations across Chicagoland each weekend.

Walk in the Word, a Bible-teaching broadcast ministry, was established in 1997. The radio program reaches millions of people, and the television audience extends across the globe. In 2002, a church-planting ministry called Harvest Bible Fellowship was born and has established many churches across North America and around the world.

James’ extensive ministry also includes a training center for pastors, a year-round camp, a center for biblical counseling, a disaster recovery organization, and a Christian school—all used to reach more people with the life-changing message of the Gospel.

James is the author of several books including Vertical Church, Authentic, When Life is Hard, Always True, and most recently, Come Home.
