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,

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

Greetings!I’m sharing this new blog post with you to keep you informed about what is next for me as God continues to direct and illuminate my path. And what an exciting, expectant time it is!

Additionally, we started our weekly Tuesday prayer calls and more than 450 people from all over the country dialed-in. Remember that prayer time is never wasted! Please plan to join us!

A GOD-SIZED VISION FOR TRINIDAD

My theme for my recent mission trip was “I’m going back to give back.” And while in Trinidad, I traveled throughout the country and to Tobago preaching the Word of God and then hosted the Dancing with Broken Bones 2015 conference, but we also gave back tangibly. I hosted a Community Day and we distributed nearly 100 backpacks full of school supplies to students attending the Shekinah Christian Academy operated by the Laventille Open Bible Church, where I first got saved.

The mission trip is only the beginning. I have a God-sized vision for Trinidad. So by God’s grace, I will return next May 25-30 for “TriniFest 2016,” hosting delegates from the United States and from around the Caribbean as we celebrate what God is doing on this great island!

My God-sized vision for Trinidad includes:

  • Continuing to provide backpacks and school supplies for the most economically challenged students, teachers and schools
  • Establishing a scholarship in my late mother’s name for a female student and one in my late nephew’s name for a male student
  • Purchasing a warehouse in Trinidad to serve as a thrift shop for needy households
  • Creating an all-girls academy to provide a safe, empowering place for other Daughters of Thunder… and much more.

Thank you to everyone  who has given a seed in support of the mission work, which is ongoing. To help me continue to be a blessing to the people of Trinidad, prayerfully consider partnering with us and making a donation online at iamdrjazz.org/partnership. All contributions are tax deductible.

And make plans now to join me next year for TriniFest 2016!

Blessings,

Jazz Name
