Apostle Bishop James Archie, Sr.

Bishop James Archie, a native of Farmerville, Louisiana, was called to the ministry in 1967 under the leadership of Pastor Bessie Whitney in Sacramento, California. He served faithfully under her tutelage until the Lord led him and his brother, Bishop George Archie, to launch out on their own. Moments of Miracles radio broadcast was born. God blessed and the ministry progressed to become known as the Moments of Blessings House of Prayer Church.


In 1971, Bishop James along with his wife Lady Marie Archie and their family, began commuting to Fresno, California. They started out pastoring a small group of believers birthing Moments of Blessings House of Prayer in the true apostolic nature of the book of Acts. That was over 47 years ago and God has continued not only to show himself faithful, but He has carried this ministry to new dimensions. Bishop James has inspired so many as he demonstrated the true character of a servant-leader. He is a true spiritual leader and father to so many. God has anointed him to teach and preach by revelation and to minister directly into the daily lives of the many who tune in either in services or through media outreach.


Bishop Archie has received commendations for his milestones in ministry and service to the community of Fresno by President George W. Bush, for 50 years of marriage by Barack H. Obama, California Secretary of State, Bill Jones, and Fresno Mayor's, Ashley Swearengin and Alan Autry.
