Pastor Jones heart is to be in the streets winning souls; however, God predestined another platform. Pastor Jones was trained at an early age under the leadership of her great-grandfather, the late District Elder, Wade E. Hatton, Sr., at Faith Temple Bibleway Church, Baltimore, Maryland. On August 10, 2013, Pastor Jones clearly heard the voice of God ordering her to the pastorate; at that point God impregnated her with ministries and the seed of the Holy Spirit to set the captives free.

She helps those who want to be free, get to the root of their bondage, so that chains are broken and yokes are destroyed.

The new sanctuary is now home to DMHC and SDC.
On January 5, 2020, Pastor Jones began serving as the Pastor of Zebulun Temple Deliverance Ministry, Baltimore, Maryland, where her paternal grandmother, The Late Apostle Thelma Ryals was founder and Overseer. In July 2020 in the height of the pandemic Pastor Jones birth out Riots to Revival; God anointed her as a Revivalist taking them to each state to pour the oil of revival.

On October 1,2021 Pastor Jones launched End Time Harvest Kingdom Fellowship International. It is a fellowship of spiritual leaders of all denominations, races and genders that equips, encourages and empowers one another to serve their communities better. As of January 1, 2022, Pastor Jones accepted the apostolic call and anointing over her life. At that point she transitioned from pastor to Apostle Jones as she was already pastoring 4 churches, nurturing pastors, and operating her nonprofit SDC.
On January 23,2022, Apostle Jones began to walk out the vision God gave her to plant ministries in each of the 50 states in the United States of America. A vision to help a hurting country by bringing unity in the body of Christ, igniting revival and bringing glory back to God. With her apostolic teams she traveled the country and launched the ministries in each state, plus Washington, D.C. They ministered in the streets, churches, libraries, capitol buildings, the beach, a youth recreation center, senior assisted living center, a university, hospitals, a welcome center, and even in the airports. Wherever there was a need, God allowed them to minister; from giving out bags of food to laying hands on the sick and watching them be healed.
God demonstrated His power was operating through this vision. On March 31, 2022, Apostle Jones became the first African American female preacher to plant churches in every state across the country. This vision did not come without obstacles and warfare; however, she endured and is now moving forward to plant pastors and leadership teams for each ministry to ensure the communities receive the nurturing they require. She has and is birthing out “Faithwalkers” and as they follow her as she follows Christ, each ministry continues to watch God move supernaturally on the behalf of His people.
Pastor Jones is fully persuaded and committed to complete the commission and vision given to her from God to ensure the Kingdom of God is represented in excellence, with the heart of God, that the lost have a “safe place” to come, that the “hospital” is always accessible, that the “trauma center” is equipped and that the remnant of God assigned to her is judgement day ready. Her “YES” has been proven and is affirmed daily as she lives what she teaches and is continually bearing fruit. Pastor Jones favorite scripture is Psalms 34,” I will bless the Lord at all times and His praises shall continually be in my mouth…” Keep watch as the story continues to be written.
