Perhaps the best way word to describe the ministry of Jacqui Smith is "unique". Characterized by unusual spiritual sensitivity, Jacqui is able to respond to the many needs of people from diverse cultural backgrounds. As an African-American woman, she has been greatly used to break through cultural and racial barriers from the very inception of her ministry some 24 years ago.
The gift of evangelism is evident when Jacqui is ministering as many are led to salvation, deliverance, and healing. These experiences occur at conferences, retreats, revival meetings, and camp meetings where her calling takes her. It is, no doubt, because of the unmistakable fruit which has been borne in her meeting, that the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) appointed her the first female national evangelist for the organization in 2001. Subsequently, she experienced another "first"...she was the first woman to be the week-long Camp Meeting speaker for the denomination in the California/Nevada's 2003 meeting.
Called and gifted as a prophetess, Jacqui feels strongly about the position outlined in Ephesians 4:11. In the life of the church, the prophetess is one who calls God's people to Him through repentance and obedience. Her burden is to call people away from idolatry to a Word-centered faith and an intimate communion with the Lord.
Understandably, Jacqui is also always concerned about encouraging and ministering to other women as well as single adults. She ministers at many women's events and singles seminars; seeking to strengthen those who are themselves single and in ministry. In addition, Jacqui has ministered to military personnel and their families in twenty countries around the world. Most recently, her ministry has expanded to include missions trips to El Salvador and Belgium for the purpose of establishing churches.
The spiritual sensitivity that characterizes her ministry enables Jacqui to be effectively used of the Lord in many diverse situations. The complex needs presented in the Body of Christ today demand great flexibility. Anyone who sits under her ministry would agree that she is an instrument of the Lord in these various ways. Truly her ministry is "unique".
