Chris Jacobs Ministries exists to do the works of Jesus (John 14:12). The Lord spoke to my heart in the fall of 2019 to start this ministry and to go into prisons and preach the gospel (Matthew 25:36). The Lord also instructed Courtney and I to teach faith in the power of God by precept and example, sharing testimonies.
For the past 15 years we have seen the Lord be so faithful to His Word and move so powerfully in our lives and in ministry. We have discovered that faith is activated by being a doer of the Word. Living by faith in His Word makes God’s supernatural power available to overcome any obstacles that are a result of mans sin.
Faith must be taught, learned, and applied. Faith is the very center of our fellowship with the Father, after a person has believed and called on Jesus for salvation. Scripture says, “…without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is…,” (Hebrews 11:6). Scripture clearly indicates that it is the will of God for ALL believers to be equipped to go INTO ALL THE WORLD with radical faith doing the works of Christ Jesus.
ABOUT CHRIS & COURTNEY:
Chris and Courtney were married in the summer of 2005. Upon returning from their honeymoon they went to Rhema Bible College in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Courtney had already completed one year of training at the bible school the year prior to their wedding. She completed a two-year program with focuses on ‘helps’ ministry and completed a third-year school of worship program as Chris was finishing a two-year program with focuses on evangelistic/traveling ministry.
In 2007 they moved back to their hometown to serve in their local church (Faith Family Church) under Pastor’s Mike and Barb Cameneti. By 2008 they were both on staff and over the next 13 years served in many capacities. In 2015 Chris was ordained and served as a family care pastor and Courtney served as one of the churches worship leaders and choir director. In late 2018 they started to sense the Lord calling them to a new work. Over what would be more than 6 months of prayer, a supernatural word from God, and the blessing of Pastors Mike and Barb they stepped out in Faith to answer what the Lord asked them to do.
June of 2019 Chris and Courtney moved to Colorado and are now a part of Legacy Church in Green Mountain Falls under Pastors Jeremy and Sarah Pearsons. Shortly after their move, the Lord started dealing with Chris about starting CJM and going into prisons to minister the gospel. As he started to pray and seek God for direction, the Lord started sending support and partners before even telling anybody. Each step of the way and each step of obedience, in regard to this ministry, led to the vision getting bigger. Ultimately, Chris and Courtney have hearts to share the gospel to the world and teach believers faith in the power of God.
