Annette Y. Jenkins is Archbishop of Zephnaniah Movement COGI. Bishop A.J., as she is fondly nicknamed, was called to the preach ministry in the year of 2009. Hesitant to accept the call for fear of making a mistake, God assured her that he indeed had ordained her a prophet to the nations with an anointing like that of the Minor Prophet Zephaniah.
After much proving and mentoring by her mother, Founding Pastor Juanita E. Parks, Bishop A.J. was installed as pastor on April 29, 2011. Since her installment, the church has flourished and continues to move forward with the vision God has provided for that work. She is very active in the community and works diligently with fellow pastors to keep the work of the Lord united and powerful. She is the mother of one loving daughter, Alexis "Mimi" Jenkins, who is a wonderful support to her in the ministry.
