About Me

Minister Onorio Chaparro serves full time at Christian Cultural Center as Director of both the Maturity Division and the International Christian Brotherhood (ICB) Men’s Ministry founded by Reverend A.R. Bernard.  A “son of the ministry”, Minister Chaparro came to CCC in 1996, and began fulltime ministry under Pastor Bernard’s leadership in 2005 upon completing his Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary.  At Princeton, Minister Chaparro pursued excellence in scholarship, earning the Arthur Paul Rech Memorial Prize in Theology and Pastoral Ministry.  Minister Chaparro is currently enrolled in the Doctorate of Ministry program at Alliance Theological Seminary, focusing on Global Leadership. 
            As the Director of the Maturity Division, Minister Chaparro spearheads Christian education to equip adults in spiritual formation and personal mission in Christ.  Under his direction new members are taken through a personalized process that includes discovering their unique design for ministry within a small group experience.  Through Minister Chaparro’s leadership the Spiritual Life Institute (SLI) develops curricula that integrates Biblical doctrine and practical living through courses, seminars and conferences.
Minister Chaparro leads the ICB, a men’s ministry whose purpose is to “train men in Christ-likeness as the standard for manhood.”  Under his direction ICB trains men through conferences, workshops, and small group experiences that forge bonds of brotherhood and develop servant leaders.  ICB members regularly volunteer at CCC, the Father’s Heart Hunger Prevention Program, and numerous causes such as NY Cares, the Special Olympics, and Habitat for Humanity.  ICB’s largest community partnership occurs each fall with the Annual Men’s Health Expo that provides free health screenings and other services.  Minister Chaparro befriends other men’s ministries to provide encouragement, consultation, and strategic development.
In his heart, Minister Chaparro loves his calling to “equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church” as a teacher, life coach, and mentor (Ephesians 4:12).  In addition to his ecclesiastical responsibilities he regularly mentors young adults, new believers, ministers in training and those who desire to walk in their divine purpose. 

Minister Chaparro resides in Flatbush, Brooklyn, where he was born and raised, with his loving wife of fourteen years, Adrienne A. Chaparro and four dynamite children, Jeremiah, Ariana, Isaiah and Elisha.
