Dr. Duke is founder and pastor of Chesapeake Christian Center in Chesapeake, Virginia. He is a native of Chesapeake, Virginia and is a graduate of Norfolk State University. Dr. Duke received an earned degree of Master of Biblical Studies and Doctor of Ministry from Friends International Christian University. He was ordained in September 1992 by Elder Little Joe Powell of Samuel Chapel Holiness Church of Moyock, North Carolina. Dr. Duke and his wife, Beulah, are blessed with two wonderful children, Kristin and Marvin II, and four beautiful grandchildren. In October 1992, Pastor Duke started Chesapeake Christian Center with his wife, a handful of members and a vision (“Changing lives spiritually, physically, and materially through the teaching of the word of God”). With a united faith for a united vision, today, the church has grown from a hotel meeting room, to a school auditorium, to a newly-built multi-million dollar sanctuary in the heart of the inner city, which was dedicated by Dr. Frederick K.C. Price in May 2000.

Chesapeake Christian Center is a non-denominational church founded by Pastor Duke in 1992.

Services are held at 10:30 AM on Sundays, Bible Study on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM and Corporate Prayer is held every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM. Holy Communion is every 2nd Sunday.
