Home > About Us > About The Pastor


Apostle Mark T. Jones Sr. is the pastor and founder of Manifestations Worldwide Inc.

Apostle Jones was saved in 1992, called and ordained to the gospel ministry in 1994, licensed and ordained as a church Elder in 1997, and promoted to assistant to the Bishop in 1999. Apostle Jones was directed of the Lord to establish the church in 2001, and the first service of the Center for Manifestation was July 15, 2001.

Very often, people of purpose and destiny fail to leave an ineradicable mark on either society or mankind, only to retreat to the heavens without maximizing their God-given and intended potential.  Dr. Mark T. Jones, Sr. is not only maximizing what God has deposited in him, but he is also empowering the people of God to fulfill their purpose on the earth.  In this season, he is a voice for the voiceless.

His messages compel the attention of those who seek to discover their purpose in life and launch their destiny.

Determined to make a difference, Dr. Jones rid himself of traditionalism and religious restraints and in 2001 launched “Preparing the Way Ministries,” which later became “The Center for Manifestation,” because of the ministry being a place of manifestation through “worship, the word, and witnessing.”  The Center for Manifestation was released from the heart of God to be a refreshing force to the body of Christ.  While the central theme and essence of the ministry is to prepare the way for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, in part this purpose is accomplished by retraining the saints as to what their God given roles and responsibilities in the church are.

Known for his dynamic and practical teaching style, his vibrant illustrated sermons are sometimes intense, often humorous, but always relevant. He communicates the message of Christ with sincerity and simplicity.  Dr. Jones’ line by line, verse by verse approach to the word stimulates the intellect of people on all levels of life and is masterfully captured in over 150 audio and video series.

Dr. Jones and his thriving congregation of over 2000 members continues to make a mark locally, nationally and internationally through the feeding program, door-to-door evangelism teams, streaming television broadcasts, and other outreach efforts, while proclaiming the message that:
this is the season for the manifestation of the sons of God.

In addition to his primary responsibility as Senior Pastor of the Center for Manifestation, Dr. Jones actively oversees over 100 ministries through the Fellowship of Bible-Centered (FBCM), which is designed to assist pastors in the strengthening and development of their churches.  FBCM also assists in the development of ministries that are not necessarily local churches in the traditional context, but which do serve for the advancement
of kingdom purpose.

Apostle Jones is accompanied in ministry by his wife of over 27 years, Lisa Jones. He has 2 children, Mark Jr. and Marlesia. Both Apostle Mark and Lisa believe in keeping families strong, and devote themselves to training
married couples in the church through marriage enrichment seminars and classes. All of Dr. Jones’ focuses and hobbies outside of the church revolve round keeping his family strong.
