About us


Welcome to Christ Divine Healing and Deliverance Ministry!


As our name depicts, we are a community of believers from different national and ethnic backgrounds. We are committed to taking the gospel to the whole world, and being used by God in fulfilling the mission stated in Luke 4:18; preaching the gospel to the poor, healing the brokenhearted, delivering the captives, and setting at liberty them that are bruised.


 We hope you will find your visit to this website a spiritually uplifting experience. Please visit again!


Our Overseer:

Through the grace and the anointing of God, Pastor Jacob Afere and his wife Pastor Margaret Afere started Christ Divine Healing and Deliverance Ministry with a weekly night vigil in the living room of their rented house in Somerville, New Jersey. After the successful completion of his Biblical Study at Somerset Christian College in June 2006, the Church was inaugurated on June 15th, 2006. Under their able leadership, the Lord is adding to the church daily those that are saved.

Before the call of God upon his life, Pastor Jacob Afere was a member of Ayewa International Gospel Singers playing Bass Guitar for the group. Pastor Jacob is a multitalented man of God. He plays the keyboard, writes songs and can also sing. He was involved in the establishment of many church branches in Nigeria before he moved to the United State of America.

Under his anointing and with the help of the Almighty God and the dedication of the church members, the church was able to purchase its own building on the 3rd of June 2012.
