Pastor Ricky Dukes Sr.


Pastor Ricky Dukes Sr.
Pastor Dukes was saved on February 13, 1976, while a student at Chicago's Dunbar Vocational High School. He was united in holy matrimony to Sis. Seneca Addison on August 8, 1983, and they are the parents of two children.

Elder Dukes worked under the leadership of the late Elder Willie E. Gordon for 21 years and announced his calling to the ministry on March 5, 1989. He was ordained several years later on May 26, 1996.

Feeling the leading of God, Elder Dukes accepted the challenge and became Pastor of the Church of God of Chicago on March 30 2001.

He has brought the congregation through storms and difficult times, but "If God be for us, who can be against us?" Pastor Dukes leads the congregation with love and tenderness, but also administers judgment and correction when necessary.
