He stands as an advocate for the marginalized.  His devotion to God and community cannot be raised without acknowledging his love for family and his devotion to his loving wife of 26 years and four beautiful children.  He has claimed as his key focus in ministry, "a repairer of the breach, and the restorer of old waste places for men to dwell.â€?  After a 15 year Senior Pastorate in the State of Florida (The Living Truth Ministries Inc), Mr. Jacobs seeks to follow the leading of the Lord in his ministry work here in the Maryland, DC area. 

Jacobs functions in the five fold ministry and believes that these offices and ministry gifts have only been instituted for the edifying of the Body of Christ.  He continues to prepare the people of God for Christ return.
