Meet Our Ministers

Bishop James and Prophetess Emily

Bishop James gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ in the year 2000. Bishop James started serving God’s purpose while working with Pastor George Crisp at Angels Recovery Church in 2002. He met his wife, Emily, while he was working with Pastor Crisp. Emily was also serving in ministry at Jubilee Christian Center. James and Emily were

married in 2004. While working together in ministry, they were both ordained as Pastors shortly thereafter. Pastor James was then called to serve in ministry with Sold Out 4 Christ Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Archie Lee Kelly. After serving with Pastor Kelly, God called the Pastors to start Austin Love Ministries church which began as a weekly bible study. Bishop James and Prophetess Emily were later ordained as Bishop and Prophetess under the anointing of Apostle Elijah Holland of God’s Power in Christian Fellowship. Bishop James and Prophetess Emily have worked very hard to establish the ministry and are “passing the torch” of pastoral duties to Pastor Corey and Alicia.

After spending more than 12 years, living a life of sin, pain, and depression Pastor Emily Cunningham accepted an invitation to attend a Wednesday night bible study in 1996. She was visited by the Holy Spirit during that study in their own home. Pastor James has a special way of teaching the word of God so that all can understand and come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

When Jesus called her to the altar, she accepted. God miraculously healed her of all sickness and disease. Pastor Emily is an evangelist at heart and enjoys assisting her husband in ministry as well as preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
