Apostle M. R. Thomas

Senior Pastor & Founder

Chief Apostle M. R. Thomas entered into this world on January 2nd.  He is the son of Shirley and the late Anthony Harris, the adopted son of Elder Jackie Holloway and the late Ascending Apostle Michael K. Holloway, and the beloved husband of Elder Janel A. Thomas.


At a very young age, this bright, intelligent young man began to preach and teach the unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ to the young as well as the old.​  Not only is he anointed to preach and teach the Word of God, but God has blessed him to operate in the full five-fold ministry.  He obeys the command of the Lord with power and authority.  He's an anointed and prolific preacher as well as an ambassador for the Kingdom of God.

In 2004, God used Chief Apostle Thomas to birth High Time Crusade Ministry, where he and his ministry traveled around the country professing the Word of God.  Through the authentic teaching and preaching of this powerful man of God, many lives were saved, delivered, and set free. 

In 2008, God revealed to his apostolic counsel, Chief Apostle Shines, Chief Apostle Anthony Pittman, Apostle Dorothy Davis, and Archbishop Luella Tate, through fasting and prayer, that this man of God was to be affirmed an Apostle.  In 2010, the council of Apostles and Apostolic Bishops were present to consecrate and affirm this man of God to oversee High Time Tabernacle of Praise Church of Deliverance, Fresh Oil Temple of Deliverance, and several other churches.  He, at that point was elevated to the calling of Chief Apostle upon founding Anointed Connected Apostolic Churches Worldwide, now reorganized as Kingdom Apostolic Global Assemblies, an organization of which Chief Apostle Thomas is also the Presiding Prelate. 

In 2013, He married his beautiful wife, Lady (Elder) Janel A. Thomas.  Together they are working toward building the Kingdom of God and giving God all the glory that He is due every step of the way.  They are also working on the international expansion of the ministry, building local churches and reaching out to countries in Africa, Central America and the Caribbean, to name a few.  Chief Apostle Thomas is the father of two sons and he and Lady Thomas are also godparents of a total of 11 children.

In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, the Lord allowed Apostle to establish Jericho Cathedral of Praise of the Apostolic Faith in Milwaukee, WI. Working through adversity during an unpresidented time, the ministry is thriving and growing just as God promised!  Jericho is truly a Right Now Church, serving a Right Now God, with a Right Now Praise, under the Apostolic and Prophetic Anointing of God!

Chief Apostle Thomas’ favorite sayings include "Prayer isn't the last resort, it's your life support", "If you stay in your own lane, there'll be no traffic", “God is still in control”, “Because God has the greatest power, we shall not be defeated”, and “God shall do just what He said, for He is not slack concerning His promises."
