"You will live and not die, and bring healing and hope to the nations, and restore leaders or soon-to-be leaders."
This inspirational word to Robert Choate enabled him, through trials of testing, to one day be sent to the nations. A poor welfare surfer boy from the streets of coastal California, it seemed impossible. He had no family, no money, no social status, no real education. He lived on the streets and had no hope. By God's transforming power, Robert Choate rose to the challenge and built an international ministry, marked by controversy, achievement, and setbacks. Today, he is recognized as an international spiritual healing figure, who has preached to, prayed for, and chauffeured government leaders, celebrities, authors, sports stars, corporate executives, newly weds, families attending baby dedications, street people, terminally ill patients, drug addicts, cult followers, suicidal people, the mentally ill, molestation and rape victims, the homeless, and young and old people.
Through his ministry, Choate has helped to establish churches and ministries. He was a pioneer in the early days of Christian television and radio for set design, programming, scripting, and talent, to effectively communicate the Gospel. The charismatic and Pentecostal anointing was brought to a fresh creative level, highlighting over 1,000 people, worship groups and ministries to over eighty countries and 40 million viewers through Gospel Channel Europe worldwide.
Spanning thirty years of ministry to the masses through Christ Comfort Ministries International, City Talks programs, publishing, worship music, and home meetings, Robert's steadfast spirit, with the help of friends and family, stands as a testimony and witness to what can happen to an outcast who obeys the call of God.
