Meet Pastor Michael McDuffie
Michael D. McDuffie was born on July 29, 1963 in Paterson, New Jersey. He is the 2nd eldest of 4 sons born to Deacons Isaac and Ruby McDuffie, also of Paterson, New Jersey. He received his education through the Paterson Public School System and its institutions of higher learning, namely P.S. #21, Eastside High School, and The Passaic County Community College. Little did he know that his education was going to be greatly enhanced by a divine encounter. He then came to know Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior at the age of 18 through Pastor Dean Trulear who is his spiritual Father in ministry. Michael had been predestined to become a servant of the Lord. Many ventures would soon aid him in his Christian growth.
He served as an aide for YOUTH FOR CHRIST, with Ron Hutchcraft Ministries. He is a former member of Redeeming Love Christian Center in Nanuet, N.Y, where he had been sent to further his Christian education under the pastoral leadership of the late Pastor Clinton Utterbach and his wife Pastor Sarah. He remained there from 1981 to 1986. In 1986, he came under the pastoral leadership of the late Rev. Frederick H.LaGarde, who was the senior pastor of the Community Baptist Church of Love, Paterson, New Jersey. Michael became a licensed minister of the Gospel under his leadership in 1988. He then became the outreach pastor of the Agape Force Outreach Ministry and was the overseer of its alcohol and drug programs. Pastor LaGarde later ordained him in 1993.
In 1995, God called Rev. McDuffie to serve in yet a much greater capacity. He was given a vision through Dr. Myles Munroe in which he was to raise up mighty churches, businesses, and schools. He became the founder and Chief Executive Officer of, “Kingdom of Might Theocratic Ministries, Inc.”
Since that time he has also become the Senior Pastor and Head Elder of the, “Mighty Sons of God Fellowship Church,” one of the manifestations of that vision which was established in 1997. He is also the head instructor of S.I.T.U. (School of Intensified Training & Understanding) a bible based training institution, which he has also established.
Rev. McDuffie has many other accomplishments and appointments to add to his credits such as being appointed as “Chair Person of the Paterson Housing Authority.” Rev.
