Mike & Velma Jacobs Navigator Representative - Virginia

Quantico Marine Corps Base


It has always been my ambition to preach the Gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.  Romans 15: 20

In 1983, for the first time in my life, I had a purpose for living. It started when a United States Marine told me that Jesus loved me, paid the penalty for my sins, and offered me eternal life and new life in Him. I placed my faith in Jesus. Within weeks I was involved with The Navigators.  I grew spiritually and later flourished with the help of a mentor who discipled me one-on-one. This mentor was a United States Marine Corps commissioned officer.

In 1998, God called me from a career as a college instructor into a full-time ministry with The Navigators’ military ministry. We were thoroughly convinced by the Spirit of God that if He could use Moses to build a united nation from a race of oppressed and weary slaves, then He could use us to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to hundreds and even thousands of unreached military men and women.

Velma and I minister at Quantico Marine Corps Base. Through Bible studies and one-on-one mentoring, we eagerly invest our lives in U.S. Marines to love them and help them reproduce their lives spiritually in others.
