Apostle E. Cambridge is an academically qualified minister with not only the years of intense experience, the proof and exhibits of a call, the witness of his peers, family, members, and friends, but moreover an anointing and passion witnessed by all.
Born in Trinidad, West Indies, he migrated to Canada where he lived for ten years. Later, he moved to the United States to answer the ‘Call to the Gospel Ministry.
He earned his B.Ed. in Industrial Arts from the University of Toronto in Canada in the year 1974. In 1980 he graduated with a M.Div. from the New Brunswick Theological Seminary at New Brunswick, NJ.
Apostle Cambridge began his unbroken spiritual journey as a Sunday School Student. At eleven, he was already being groomed for ministry; then accepted his first assignment at fourteen teaching a Sunday school class of ten-year-olds. At eighteen, he began ministering the Gospel through the word and song to High School Bible Clubs through Youth for Christ.
In 1992 Apostle Cambridge was led of the Spirit “into the wilderness”‚ to be proven by every need to which he would have to minister. It was time for God to equip him for His divine purpose. The next five years were God’s time of breaking and making a vessel of honor unto His glory. These were years of emptying him of the traditional doctrines and disciplines of man that he might be filled with “Thus saith the Lord.” Like so many of God’s leaders in scripture: Moses, Joseph, David, Paul to name a few, Apostle Cambridge was stripped of all that he had acquired, that “he might not glory in the flesh.”
In 1996 the voice of the Lord called him back to Plainfield to birth a ministry under the banner of Praise Tabernacle Ministries International, one which is to bring healing to the whole man as he affects the Body of Christ. PTMI presently covers and supports nineteen foreign pastors and their ministries.
A year later, in 1997, he was consecrated to the office of Apostle.
The following scripture accurately frames his philosophy:
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son.” — Romans 8:28-29
Throughout his life and ministry, Apostle Cambridge labors that the individual and corporate Church might become “a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” — Ephesians 3:13
