Pastor John A. Young
Pastor John A. Young is the Founder of the Empowered Believers Christian Learning Center in Hampton, VA.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Houston, Texas, he was educated in the public schools of Galveston County. Pastor Young is a veteran of the United States Air Force, where he proudly served his country for more than 10 years. During his distinguished military career, he was involved in Operation Desert Storm and later achieved the honor of becoming the nation’s top Air Force Recruiter.
Pastor Young was ordained in May of 1995 and founded Empowered Believers approximately 10 years later. Since then, God has given him an international ministry that has taken him all over America and several foreign countries.
Pastor Young matriculated through Austin Community College, The Community College of the Air Force and The University of Maryland. Although he has received many prestigious credentials, several degrees, as well as an innumerable amount of awards and recognition, he would much rather tell you about what Jesus accomplished on Calvary. His prayer is that the people not see the man, but the Messiah.
