Congratulations to our 2013 Award Recipients!
Champion of Faith Award
Evangelist Sheila Jones
In 1988, Evangelist Jones was called to the ministry and service. Her earnest belief remains steadfast: through the power of prayer, love and human intervention, she can make a difference! Her greatest passion in life is outreach ministry; helping people in need and declaring the Word of the God with power, authority and clarity so that those who are bound by the clutches of satan will be made whole and free.
Evangelist Jones is credited with participation in the following ministries: M.O.M.S (Mothers of Murdered Sons), Reality Check, Second Chance Program, Liaison with Camden Police offering support to prostitutes, Ordained Chaplain by the City of Camden, Member of Mayor Dana Redd’s Congress of Resident and Faith-Based Initiative, Monthly Free Food Bank Ministry, Mobile Senior Outreach, and Night Witnessing Program called “Word on the Street”
The untiring contributions and selfless investment Evangelist Sheila Jones has made into the lives of others has yielded significant results, but not more lasting than the countless lives changed and souls saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
