Apostle Cynthia L. Chess
Prayer Warrior, Apostle, Pastor, Teacher and Prophet are all titles that denote the rich anointing on the life of Dr. Cynthia L. Chess. Her style of preaching and teaching is exuberant and inspiring. She has a gift of sharing the Word of God so as to draw the hearer into a greater revelation of the deep and secret things of God. Masterfully, she dissects the Word to uncover the full meaning of Scripture and accurately applies it to the challenges of today.
As one of God's dedicated and anointed Prayer Warriors, she loves to pray and intercede on behalf of the Body of Christ. Equipped with the boldness to seek and believe God for whatever the Holy Spirit has impressed in her spirit to pray for, she is one who "prays without ceasing." Her life reflects an anointing that is the result of spending countless hours in the presence of God.
She is often moved by the Holy Spirit to minister in the Prophetic, declaring what "thus says the Lord". Apostle Chess ministers in the truth of Isaiah 58:1 which commands that the prophet of God "Cry aloud and spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and show My people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins". As God word's her mouth, she teaches and preaches a life changing message of deliverance, enlightenment, and encouragement.
Apostle Chess has a sincere heart and a love for God's people. She is unwavering in her dedication to the institution of marriage and building strong families. This dedication is the basis for her passion for counseling women on how to build and sustain stable marriages and relationships. She has a special burden for at risk youth and seeks to speak hope into their young lives. A personal mission of hers is to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo heavy burdens, free the oppressed and minister in a way that every yoke might be broken.
In June of 2007, Apostle Chess acknowledged the call to Pastor and became the Shepherd of Mountain's Hope Community Worship Center in Mountain House, CA. This new church plant is rapidly growing and meeting the diverse spiritual needs of the churched and unchurched alike. Services are truly under the direction of the Holy Spirit and Apostle Chess ministers with sensitivity to the responsibility of ushering the congregation into the presence of the Lord where miracles are possible.
Apostle Chess furthered her education at Shiloh Bible College, E.C. Reems Bible College and Holy Names College, all in Oakland, CA. In 2004, Apostle Chess received an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Ministry from Bell Grove Theological Seminary in recognition of more than 20 years of ministry that began in the Baptist Church. As a Licensed Financial Analyst, she is the sole proprietor of C.C.C. Bookkeeping Services.
Apostle Chess lives in Mountain House, CA with her wonderful husband Troy.
