Over 40 years ago, Bishop Dena Jobes accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She received the Lord in His fullness, acknowledging the gifts of the Holy Spirit under the guidance of Dr. Dennis Golphin at the Believer’s Haven Fellowship, which was later named Choice Manna Family Worship Center. Under the tutelage of Dr. Golphin, she received spiritual training and guidance and served in many capacities in the church.
Bishop Jobes, who is known as Pastor Dena, is widely recognized as a mighty prayer warrior, anointed with the gift of intercession. As she became intuitively aware that God was grieved over many of the conditions in the corporate church, she acquired an inconceivable intense burden for the church, preparing herself for the responsibility of helping to heal and restore the church. She spends countless hours crying out before God for the Body of Christ and for world conditions.
Bishop Jobes' association with anointed vessels who had international ministries opened doors for her to be able to cover many areas in foreign countries, including Barbados, Antigua, Granada and Trinidad. She has been able to share the unusual anointing and ministry that God has placed upon her life with many in the East Coast of the United States as well. Many have been set free, delivered, and healed through the persevering and steady prayers and unwavering faith of this servant of God. She is a unique gift that has been given to the Body of Christ to aggressively and boldly take a stand against the Kingdom of Darkness, bringing those that are lost into the Kingdom of Light through the power of prayer. She stands firmly on the truth that Jesus Is Lord!
