Blessing Jacobs is an Anglican Catholic Priest. A commissioned Officer of the United States Army, currently serving as the Brigade Chaplain for 3D Brigade (CM) 102D TNG Division (MS) located at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. Prior to serving at the chemical brigade, he served as the Brigade chaplain for a Military Intelligence (MI) Brigade, FT Huachuca, AZ; and Psychological Operation (CAMISO) Brigade, FT. Totten, NY. He is married to Goodness Sopuruchi and resides in Fall River MA. Fr. Blessing Jacobs has a passion to bring the message of Shalom to the broken hearted, the afflicted, and all of God’s image bearers. He has two children Blessing (15) and Levi (14). His family mean more than the world to him. He attended North Point College, and Gordon Con-well Theological seminary. His studies also took him to Yale and Harvard Divinity School (HDS) in preparation for the ministry that God has called him to do. He is a Biblical scholar (although he sees himself as still a student of the word) but people who attend his Bible fellowship or listen to him preach are mesmerized by the depth of his knowledge of God’s word. Blessing spent about a decade in the New age Movement before his encounter with the Lord in 1998 during his stay in a neighboring African country, in which God called him to preach the gospel. He talks about how he was minding his own business and how he hated pastoral ministry with a passion when God stepped into his life and turned his world upside down. Blessing described how he made mockery of those who were training to be pastors. In one occasion he said ” I thought that those guys were crazy; going to Bible college for four years?” He sees himself as insane since he has spent over ten years in different ministerial schools. Fr. Blessing Jacobs was the Vicar at Saint Michael’s Anglican Church, New Haven, CT. He is a priest in good standing with Cathedral of Resurrection, Ansonia CT, where he received Sacred Orders to priesthood over six years ago. He is currently a chaplain at Beacon Hospice, Fall River, MA, where he has provided chaplain ministry to hundreds of patients, families, and Hospice staff. Fr. Jacobs likes to be challenged and encourages people to ask tough questions and speak their minds about the social issues he raises. He is an anointed servant of God, who views all people irrespective of their orientation, gender, race, or status as God’s image bearers and ought to be treated as such. Fr.
