The Ministry Continues in Trinidad

More than 18 years ago, I left Trinidad with $32 in my pocket. It has been one of my dreams to go back and make an investment in the land that birthed me physically and spiritually.  This year, God blessed me to bring 150-plus people to Trinidad from May 25-28 for ministry and mission during TriniFest 2k16!

TriniFest 2k16 featured three powerful worship services that were held at Deliverance Temple Church and Jesus Elam International Church.  The lecture by Dr. Celeste Owens and the sermons by myself and Dr. Jamal Bryant focused on the process of moving from dancing with broken emotions and painful memories to finding healing and deliverance not only physically, but also emotionally and psychologically. There are some things that God wants to clean out of us because we can’t take them to the next level!

I personally want to thank everyone who has sowed a seed in support of this important mission work, which is ongoing. Thanks to your support, we were able to distribute nearly 90 backpacks of school supplies to economically disadvantaged children from my native village of Laventille during TriniFest 2k16. But the response was so strong that when we left Trinidad, there were still more than 100 additional children who did not receive backpacks.

Your purchase of TriniFest 2k16 products will help us to provide the remaining backpacks to the kids when I return to Trinidad in August.  You can order the TriniFest 2k16 CD and DVD sets online at www.iamdrjazz.org. You also can make a donation online. All contributions are tax deductible.

Thank you for helping us to bring the Gospel to Trinidad and encourage future Daughters and Sons of Thunder!  We will be returning for TriniFest every other year, so I invite you to start making plans now to join me in two years for TriniFest 2k18 on May 23-27!

Blessings,

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade!

IMG_41945

This month, I celebrated my first Mother’s Day at Victory Grace Center, the ministry that I gave birth to eight months ago. God blessed me with a powerful message for mothers that was partially inspired by Beyoncé’s new project, “Lemonade.” In this life you will be served “lemons” – sour and unpleasant experiences – but if anybody knows how to take those lemons and make lemonade, it is mothers.

To learn the four sIMG_20160513_155629tages one may go through to make something sweet out of a bad situation, I invite you to order my “Lemonade” sermon. You will see that your breakthrough is inside of you! And that’s why I also recently preached a series on “Spring Cleaning” – because we all have some stuff we need to get rid of so God can move us to the next level. Both are available for purchase online at VictoryGraceCenter.org.

Also, on May 25-28, more than 125 people will be traveling with me to my home country of Trinidad for TriniFest 2k16!  Please keep us lifted in your prayers and consider partnering with us.  Your gift of $32 will help us to bring the Gospel to Trinidad, and the proceeds from any purchases you make in my online store at IamDrJazz.org also will support this exciting mission trip.

Blessings,

Jazz Name

Deborah’s Army 2015: Game Changers!

IMG_2167

(view the entire photo gallery below!)

It has always been on my heart to pour back into women in ministry and share some of my experiences to help them along their journey. On Oct. 30-31, the Lord blessed me to birth the First Annual Deborah’s Army Mentor Weekend in Washington, D.C. Women ministers and ministers-in-training came from 20 states and two countries to be educated, equipped and empowered.

The theme was “Game Changers!” and the training featured two power-packed days of relevant, informative ministry information.  IMG_20151105_171256

I taught sessions on “Game Changers” and “Rules of Engagement.” There also was a session on legal issues within your ministry taught by Damien Fields, President and CEO of HME Consulting Inc. My good friend in the ministry Bishop Millicent Hunter taught a session on “Preaching through the Digital Age,” and we both took questions during a powerful, no-holds barred Q&A period. I also held a panel discussion with my ministry dream team and then we held a closing commissioning ceremony during which each woman received a certificate for completing the training.

And to all of those amazing women who are a part of the Class of 2015, let’s keep the conversation going on social media. Let me know how you are being a game changer in your life and in your ministry. Use the hashtag #DeborahsArmy2015!

And for those who missed it, make sure you register to become a part of the Class of 2016. There is an army rising up to do a tremendous work on the Earth!

Blessings,

Jazz Name

I Didn’t Know I Was This Pregnant!

FullSizeRender (12)Two years ago, I stood on the stage of MegaFest and preached the sermon, “I didn’t know I was this pregnant.” Two months ago I gave birth to Victory Grace Center, a new ministry that is strong, vibrant and growing with more than 400 members.

It is an exciting time at VGC as the Lord continues to bless us mightily. I just completed a powerful sermon series called “Watch Me Win,” and just began a new series called “Unbreakable.” Be sure to visit us or watch us online every Sunday at 10 a.m. EST.

On Oct. 30-31, I am hosting my first Deborah’s Army Mentor Weekend in Washington, D.C., for women who are licensed, ordained, or are ministers-in-training. Women from 23 states have registered and the event is currently sold out!

Also this weekend on Nov. 1, VGC will host our second “Vision 2 Victory” service featuring Bishop Rudolph McKissick and guest psalmist VaShawn Mitchell. If you can, plan to join us in person or watch us live online. Dr. Jamal Bryant and psalmist Jonathan Nelson kicked off the celebration last month and we had an amazing time!

Of course, nothing is birthed without prayer. Before launching VGC, I began a weekly prayer call as we sought God’s purpose. And we are still praying every Tuesday at 6:30 am EST. Dial in at (712) 775-7031 using access code 450797. More than 600 men and women from around the country joined our last call. You should start your day with prayer with us.

And the journey continues! I am making an exciting ministry announcement this Sunday, Nov. 1. You do not want to miss this. Make sure you tune in. #VGCintheDMV is the place to be!

And, as always, thank you for the outpouring of love, prayers and support during this season of Victory and Grace!

Blessings,

Jazz Name
