About Our Pastor
James Mileti graduated Arizona State University with a B.A. in Communications and a History Minor. He became a believer in 2008 while reading a Bible that he bought from a dollar bin at a local bookstore.
He is a four year graduate of Heritage Baptist Institute in Brooklyn, Ohio, earning a Bachelor of Religious Theology Diploma. He was ordained by Cleveland Baptist Church.
James taught the Bible to a bus load of men from Cleveland’s City Mission each week at Cleveland Baptist Church for over three years and led the Summer Soul Winning outreaches at Cleveland Baptist Church for two years as well. James also taught a church-wide ‘Summer Electives’ series at Cleveland Baptist Church, and has also taught at Heritage Baptist Institute.
If there is an opportunity to share the Gospel message, with the Holy Spirit’s help, James will most likely take it.
James and Rebecca Mileti were both saved in separate circumstances in 2008. After lives of total disregard of Jesus, we both – in independent scenarios – became believers and have proven Luke 7:47 true: “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”
After church hopping for a while and seeing some horrifying church practices, we settled into regular, unwavering church attendance and membership at Cleveland Baptist Church in Brooklyn, Ohio.
We take the Bible seriously and desire to obey James 1:22, “be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only.” Because of this, we traded in our car and got a van with Bible verses on it, knowing the power of God’s Word. We also took to the streets and started sharing the Word of God with whomever we encountered.
Either via Gospel tracts or actual conversations, we actively share the Word of God with as many as we can, and a few actually believe and become born again.
In our best year we have probably handed out approximately 20,000 Gospel tracts! It is a great glory to be working with God instead of against Him!
