Dr. Mark T. Jones Sr. is the Founder and President of Manifest Theological Institute, as well as the President of Manifestations Worldwide, Inc., which proudly serves as the spiritual covering for over one hundred and thirty churches and pastors located in Africa, Asia and Europe. At the nucleus of his efforts is bringing biblical foundations and principles to nations that have never heard the gospel message and to develop and train pastors to effectively present the gospel message to their people. As a result of Dr. Jones’ commitment to the transformation of nations for Christ, he regularly sends missionaries to international locations to minister and train to the needs of the people. His ministry sponsors the Emerge Student Orphanage in India and the orphanage cares for the daily needs of over thirty children. Dr. Jones has also developed a partnership with the Holy Kafe Biblical Group to sponsor the translation, publication and dissemination of bibles in Pakistan. To date, the ministry has sponsored three thousand bible publications in four languages.
Locally, Dr. Jones serves as the Senior Pastor of The Center for Manifestation in Tampa, Florida. In addition to his primary responsibility as the senior leader, Dr. Jones actively oversees several ministries through the Fellowship of Bible-Centered Ministries (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.
Dr. Jones is accompanied in ministry by his wife of over 25 years, Lisa Jones. They have 2 children, Mark Jr. and Marlesia. Dr. Mark and Lisa believe in keeping families strong, and devoting themselves to training married couples through marriage enrichment seminars and classes. All of Dr. Jones’ focuses and hobbies outside of his ministry obligations revolve around keeping his family strong.
