About the Author

Widely known as “Pastor Choco,” Wilfredo De Jesús is the senior pastor of New Life Covenant Church in Chicago. Under Pastor Choco’s leadership, New Life Covenant is the largest church in the Assemblies of God fellowship. Wilfredo was born and raised in Chicago’s Humboldt Park community. When he was seventeen years old, he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior at a small Pentecostal Spanish-speaking church in the community. From that moment, his life was forever transformed. He remained in that same little church for over twenty years before he was appointed Senior Pastor in July 2000. Since then, the church has grown from a weekly attendance of 120 to 17,000 globally through church plants and more than 130 ministries reaching the most disenfranchised—the brokenhearted, poor, homeless, prostitutes, drug addicts, and gang members. Rev. De Jesús has been instrumental in the development of several community-based programs such as New Life Family Services, which operates a homeless shelter for women with children. Some of the church’s other vital ministries include the Chicago Master’s Commission, an intensive discipleship program for college-age students, and the Chicago Dream Center, which offers various programs and services to assist individuals and families to move toward self-sufficiency and to overcome poverty and its ill effects. Wilfredo’s vision is simple: to be a church for the hurting that reaches people for Jesus. In 2012, he released his first book, Amazing Faith, in which he shares his life story and message: “No one is beyond the transforming power of God’s love. When we let Him, God fills our hearts with His love, strength, and purpose, and we become complete.”
