In 2007, led by Holy Spirit, Michael found himself answering the ministry call to Jesus in front of the body in Christ which began a two year world wind journey becoming one of His appointed minister’s and founder of New Millennium Faith Church & 4 C I T Ministries International. After answering the commission to the position of apostolic minister and then affirmed through his elders, he began the responsibility to develop & minister the kingdom of heaven to ministers, leaders and the body in Christ around the world. With his wife, they began the church in their basement the summer of 2008 hosting home bible studies with a handful of people. It was April 1st, when Michael and his wife heard a message from Heavenly Father who gave them the name of the church.
The church began in their home and then grew into missions throughout the Midwest states. The church moved to downtown Chicago for three years before Michael heard the Lord tell Him to return home to build the apostolic foundation. Currently, we host kingdom bible studies, outreach and weekend services.
I want to just write about me from my heart so you get to know me better if not personally. I believe wholeheartedly that we are to know those who we labor with. I believe in the Kingdom of Heaven and that every born again person enters the Kingdom of Heaven and has great potential to become who they ought to be if they will die to self daily, learn how to cultivate life in the kingdom of Heaven and know and understand their birthright. There is so much to life and when we become born again life takes on a new meaning in a weightier way. I can talk for hours upon hours about the goodness of our Heavenly Father and all that He is doing for me. If you want to know just ask me or better yet get connected at the next meeting. I am the eldest son to Debbie and Michael E. Thomas Sr.. I am a native to Northern Illinois and a graduate from Harlem High School in 1990. Since moving back to my community of birth, it has been challenging to serve and work to expand His kingdom into this region for it is true that a servant is not welcomed in his own hometown. Throughout this awesome journey that I encountered and agreed to join, I have and am still learning how to be His son, a better man and husband and one of His elect officers overseeing the assignment He has released to me. I am blown away how much He loves me and applies His grace, favor and mercy so I can be successful and a person of influence. This journey is ongoing and comes at a price and the beauty about who I am in this journey is that He keeps opening me up to my identity because it is His will and I am like a sponge. In the beginning, I can testify that I didn't understand this walk from His kingdom perspective and though I did not grow up in the typical church construct I grew after a desire to know Him when He encountered me and I had no where else to flee to. I accepted that I was arrested and surrendered to His will. In this journey I had to deal with releasing my pride and He had to deal with my ego. Lessons I have learned that I use in my serving and teaching.
In 2013, He sent His messengers to me at an apostolic meeting I was invited to (as a guest) and it was this particular meeting that changed me forever, because I received the realization by one of my mentors He gave me a kingdom covenant to not only bare, but fulfill as one of His elect officers called to establish his apostolic stations. So our church is a station! This apostolic station is based upon the foundations of the Kingdom of Heaven and structured in His love, the Spirit of wisdom to help establish His protocols for those after Him. I am a dad to 6, teacher, mentor, public speaker, entrepreneur, radio host and founding apostolic minister. I am honored & blessed He chose me to be His apostolic founder to New Millennium Faith Church, 4 C I T Ministries International, KAMA (Kingdom Apostolic Ministries Association) & Identity Life Coaching headquartered in Loves Park, Illinois. By His grace and appointment, I have been serving since 2007.
Apostle Shantha from Gampola, Sri Lanka connected with Apostle Michael in the winter of 2016. He is a strong man who desires the Lord and he blesses all those he encounters as a humble vessel of God. He helps the church excel and gives steady wisdom to the leadership. Serving in the exactness of truth, Shantha is a powerful elder who influences the body in central Sri Lanka. The hand of God stays upon his life.
Pastor Chris comes to this station from his growing up in his family's church, Kingdom Builders Voice of Victory Church in Beloit, Wisconsin. He spent 4 years serving under his spiritual dad and is now advancing in his biblical studies. Recently married to his high school sweet heart Mrs. Yna (yah-nah) , we are excited to have him to help shepherd and serve all who attend our weekend gatherings Part of Chris's vision is to help as many people as possible, to grow into his faith, advance the kingdom of heaven and he wants to personally advance in the role that God has for him. He is working towards his goal to be a kingdom music producer and a CEO of His own company.
Minister Yna (yah-nah) wants to step into everything the Father has for her. She wants to help the poor, the lame, the widows, and the fatherless step into everything the Father has for them. She wants to travel the world and speak to all races and people about the goodness, faithfulness, glory, and love of the Lord. Breaking barriers and changing lives in the leading of the Holy Spirit that the world may know that with the Lord you will never be defeated, unloved, uncared for, or neglected. “I thank the Lord always for sending me and speaking through me so his children may be redeemed”.
