Getting to know your County Prayer Leaders
Apostle/Pastor Dr. Jenni’fer JMB Chapman is God’s Woman. Her late father, Pastor Dr. Thomas Edison Chapman raised her in Cleveland Ohio. He is the founding Pastor of Avon Avenue Baptist Church.
When asked, what the most memorable experience with her father she stated; “it was the night I witnessed my father bring a man into our home who had just attempted to steal his car. Daddy brought the man into the living room, read him the bible and gave him God’s “salvation plan”. The man accepted Christ into his life.
Later she came across a book by David Wilkerson, titled “Run Baby Run”. It depicted the life and salvation conversion of Nicky Cruz. The one part of the book that moved her heart was the encounter between David Wilkerson and Nicky Cruz. Nicky had what we term, a hard life. A life of violence in the home and on the streets. He attacked David violently, and spit in his face. The worse degrading act a person could experience. David’s response was, “You could cut me up into 1000 pieces and lay them in the street. Every piece will still love you.” That’s love! GOD’S unconditional love. HIS amazing love. That is still alive today.
That was a defining moment in my life.”
As a teen, she moved to Long Beach California. Under the founding pastorate of John McClung Sr. of the Living Word Missionary Baptist Church. It was under the direction of Pastor McClung, she learned the word of GOD and was taught how to evangelize in the streets of Long Beach California.
When asked, what was the most memorable experience with her spiritual father?
She stated; “Pastor McClung started a small coffee house in Long Beach California, which was located in a high crime area. Anaheim Street was known for drug addicts, gangsters, prostitutes, and pimps. GOD placed us right in the heart of where HIS love was needed the most.
I witnessed a show of love which forever changed my life. Pastor McClung was a compassionate man, who loved God. This love was displayed in his walk and how he treated others. Pastor McClung loved GODS people. He taught the word. He made a difference in my life.
As the founder of Beyond The Walls Ministries International, she is a woman of GOD with a passion for HIS Presence. Worship is a lifestyle for her, she reaches “beyond the walls” of the church to help heal God’s children.
Those who are broken in various areas of their lives.
“My hands are used to serve His people, my arms to hold them, my heart to pray for them, my eyes to reflect HIS Love. I am only but a flawed individual, loving flawed people with HIS DIVINE LOVE.”
As a called Servant of GOD, she operates under a deliverance, Apostolic, and Prophetic anointing. From within her own experience of being a broken overcomer. She knows it is the power of the WORD of GOD, the leading of the Holy SPIRIT, and the Love of GOD which ministers to the people she serves.
For three years, she served as Chaplain of The Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center serving men and their families. Located in San Jose, California. She ministered and counseled with numerous men who were going through rehabilitation for substance and alcohol abuse. Many of these men were baptized, and lives restored to Christ. While others were introduced to God for the first time. These men were affectionally known as “my guys”, God’s undiscovered treasure.
She led the deliverance tent of Argentinian Evangelist Carlos Annacondia which was featured LIVE on GOD TV, direct from San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza, during his Bay Area crusade, in 2009. There were 256 people counted for that evening were brought into the tent and delivered from demonic spirits and brought to a place of salvation.
She hosts conferences in the Bay Area on a regular basis. Most of these conferences deal with everyday spiritual warfare. Subjects such as; Tormented by Rejection, Abuse, Forgiveness, Celebration of Halloween, I am a Christian Now What, Woman Be Thou Refreshed and much more. One of these conferences was by G. Craig Lewis of Ex-Ministries. She believes he has a word for the youth of the community.
She served under the leadership of Pastor Paul Shepherd of Destiny Center formally known as Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, as his deliverance minister.
In a local apartment swimming pool in Sacramento, there was baptism for 18 people “. What was intended as a single baptism service turned out to be a community baptism.
“The Three Baptisms of Christ” was the sermon used to turn the hearts of many to Christ. This phenomenal experience came after the first two months upon hearing, “no longer will you be called S.W.A.T. but Beyond The Walls Ministries. You are to go beyond the walls of the church to marry those who are shacking up, to take communion to those who are bedridden, to baptize those in my name, to set the captive free those who are bound.“
Beyond The Walls Ministries formally known as S.W.A.T. (Spiritual Warfare Attack Team) answered the voice of GOD.
To pre-marital couples, she offers extensive counseling. You will hear her say, “my goal is to break you up with the truth that marriage is a commitment, not a feeling. The day of the wedding is the celebration of a lifelong courtship.” She has married countless couples.
God consistently uses her as HIS conduit of authority and power over the enemy, and she is faithful to give HIM all the GLORY for each healing and deliverance. Often times you will hear her say, “I can’t deliver an ant from an ant farm, so I surrender to God for each person to be delivered. If God does not give me direct word of knowledge of the origin or problem with the person, HE has not given me permission to work with them.“ She teaches classes, gives conferences and ministers the word of God, faithfully.
Deliverance is her calling. Often she travels to homes to pray (cast out) unseen guests, give communion and minister HIS Love. She continues to seek and do the will of God.
