Pastor Ja’mel Armstrong

Upon answering God’s call Pastor J began the process of honing his gift and developing his ministry.  He matriculated at Simmons Bible College for undergrad and is currently attending Noth Park Theological Seminary pursuing a Master’s of Divinity Degree.

Pastor J has an evangelist’s heart which led to the planting of two churches and, coaching and mentoring church planters across the U.S.  Serving predominantly under-resourced communities also birthed a passion for racial righteousness and working for justice for the marginalized. “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace,” (Acts 20:24).  This is the passage of scripture that Pastor Ja’mel Armstrong (Pastor J) credits for inspiring his commitment to ministry.  Pastor J accepted his call to ministry in 2002, right here at New Horizon Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Emeritus Bishop Walter Smith Jr.  Pastor J is married to the love of his life, Rochelle, an author, consultant, and Bible teacher.  Together they have a passion for serving and supporting the black community.  They are the proud parents of Jonathan, Jessica, Dejah and the grandparents of Landyn.
