Chief Apostle Alvin J. McCullough was born and raised in New York City. He is the second child out of seven children. He served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam Era where he was a highly decorated soldier.
He attended the New York Theological Seminary for 2 years until the Lord saw a greater need for him to move to the Atlanta area in 1990. While continuing his work as a servant for the Lord, he met his wife Jacque and they were married in 1991. Out of this holy union came their daughter Joycelyn whom they are extremely proud.
Chief Apostle McCullough retired from the Fulton County School System as the Supervisor of the Maintenance Department in South Fulton County in 2012. During his tenure at Fulton County School System he held the position as Executive Director of Georgia School Plant Maintenance Association for 6 years which provided training for the maintenance and custodian personnel for the State of Georgia.
Chief Apostle McCullough along with his wife evangelized for 6 years before the Lord called them to Pastor at the Prayer House of Faith Church in Douglasville. In 1998, God called him and his wife to establish Alvin and Jacque McCullough Ministries, Inc. During that time, Chief Apostle fulfilled the vision that was placed before him by totally renovating the church including and building a fellowship hall.
Months later the Lord elevated them to birth their own ministry, which came forth in October 2001, the church was called True Vine Worship Center in Cedartown, Georgia. Chief Apostle McCullough was later consecrated in the office of Bishop in 2003 also his wife to Pastor. The call of God was sending Chief Apostle (at the time Bishop McCullough) into another direction so True Vine Worship Center was released and Bishop remained still until hearing from the Lord pertaining to where, how and when to go forth.
In March 2007, he was consecrated in the office of Apostle. Thereafter, Apostle McCullough began establishing and rebuilding churches as the Spirit of the Lord led him.
On May 19, 2012, he was consecrated in the office of Chief Apostle overseeing Apostolic leaders and ministries in Augusta and Douglasville, Georgia; Bronx, New York; Clinton, Maryland, Washington D.C., Muncie, Indiana and Pensacola, Florida. His spiritual covering is Apostle Randy Hall of the Sword of the Lord Ministries, Int’l in East Point, Georgia.
Chief Apostle McCullough realized God was calling him into a greater area of ministry. Therefore, he’s committed himself to train leaders in the church on vital areas of ministry which is needed for this time. In the process of serving as Overseer God birthed Manna from Heaven Ministries International in January 2007 in Douglasville which is growing steadfast in the Lord today.
The Lord has blessed Chief Apostle Alvin and Pastor Jacque McCullough to birth several ministries which include: Men Walking in the Prophetic, Women Walking in the Prophetic, Rainbow Counseling and Leadership Training which is now an accredited theological school which is called AJM Christian Institute.
Chief Apostle Alvin McCullough is a family man, husband, businessman, and Supervisor. But the title he admires most is that he is a “Servant” for the Lord Jesus Christ. He’s saved, sanctified and filled with God’s precious Holy Spirit moving in the apostolic anointing in the five-fold ministry.
Chief Apostle McCullough believes in restoring the credibility and the authentic motives back to the five-fold ministry which have been distorted by untrained men and women of God walking in error according to the Word of God. If we say that we are the mouthpieces for God then let us do ministry in excellence.
