Bishop Jacobs is the Founder and Pastor of New Zion Temple Church organized on December 14, 2006.

Bishop Jacobs now pastors one church in 3 locations, including the NZT online church.
New Zion Temple Church is an affiliate of Pilgrim Assemblies International, Inc., which is headquartered in New York, under the leadership of Presiding Archbishop William Hudson III. On July 8, 2016, Bishop Jacobs was one of the last two Bishops consecrated under the leadership of the late Archbishop Roy E. Brown.

Through God’s inspiration, Bishop Jacobs launched BAJI Ministries, which hosts The Ignite Conference annually since 2020. The Ignite conference is purposed to rekindling the fire within; targeting ministry, worship, marriage, and the marketplace, in hopes that it leaves its participants feeling
rejuvenated, inspired, and empowered to transcend into their God-given purpose.

Bishop Jacobs is married to the beautiful and anointed Lady Vivian Jacobs who, as the Executive Pastor of New Zion Temple, diligently serves alongside her husband and impels the vision. They are the proud parents of five children.

Bishop Jacobs believes his strong relationship with God sustains him and gives him the strength
to better serve his local church. As an itinerant Revivalist, Bishop Jacobs continues spreading the true,
unadulterated word of God.
