A. R. Bernard is one of the most influential religious leaders and transformative visionary. He leads one of the largest congregations in the United States, with 40,000+ members. Bernard enjoyed a successful career in finance before following his calling and opening a small storefront church in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He is now the Founder, President and Senior Pastor of Christian Cultural Center (CCC). Once a Nation of Islam follower and teenage civil rights activist, A. R. Bernard’s secretary introduced him to Christ and invited him to a Nicky Cruz crusade where he surrendered his life to Christ. From that point forward, Bernard has been a student of history and the Bible — educating, nurturing, and equipping his congregants to navigate their faith with sound values and biblical principles. Today, he is a premiere thought leader in Christianity and American History/Race Relations and has been featured on Fox News, CNN, NBC’s Today, MSNBC, CBS News, TBN, BET and has his own weekly show on Daystar TV. Bernard embraces radio, TV, social media and other forms of communication as a way to share his message and bring Christ to the culture on a regular basis. His transformative messages are also shared in his books, Happiness Is... and Four Things Women Want from a Man. As a mentor to pastors, Bernard also counsels top figures in business, entertainment and politics. He has served on the NYC Economic Development Corporation for Mayors Bill de Blasio and Michael R. Bloomberg; he’s been a part of the NYC School Chancellor’s Advisory Cabinet and served on both Mayor Bloomberg’s 2001 and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s 2014 Transition Teams. Bernard has welcomed a host of world leaders, dignitaries, governors, senators, congress members, and local officials; such as President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, New York Governors Andrew Cuomo, David Paterson, George Pataki, Eliot Spitzer, New York City Mayors Bill de Blasio, Michael Bloomberg, and David Dinkins, Senator Charles Schumer, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, New York Attorney General Letitia James, New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, President Reuven Rivlin of the State of Israel and Israeli Consul Generals of New York - Ido Aharoni and Dani Dayan. As a visionary, who witnessed how faith has brought hope into communities that were mostly ignored and underserved, Rev. Bernard has led CCC in a partnership with Gotham Organization for a development project on the 10-acre property adjacent to the megachurch’s main Brooklyn Campus. This project will create over 2,000 units of income-based workforce housing, healthcare and educational facilities, retail stores, performance arts center and community service spaces. This partnership will be a generational joint venture between CCC and Gotham Organization that allows CCC to stay in control of the joint venture. Construction would take place over a course of a decade with hopes of breaking ground in 2021. CCC also has campuses in Smithtown, Long Island and Orlando, Florida. Rev. Bernard has a Master of Professional Studies and a Master of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary. He has been awarded an Honorary Doctor of Divinity from Wagner College, and an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Nyack College/Alliance Theological Seminary. His wife, Karen, resigned from her career with the Queens County Supreme Court and accepted her calling to co-pastor with her husband. Together they have successfully experienced 48 years of marriage, 42 years of ministry, raised 7 sons and are blessed with 24 beautiful grandchildren. http://ARBernard.com http://cccinfo.org
