In this triple role as leader of AWIM, Pastor Jacque’ wears many hats. In March 1993, she began to host and produce an hour-long telecast, which aired over cable television in Oak Forest, Markham, Harvey, and Phoenix, Illinois. This television outreach immediately flourished, and in March 1995, it expanded to encompass the Chicago land area. Again, it expanded and in 2001, AWIM began airing a weekly telecast over WJYC, Channel 62. Currently, both weekly telecasts are aired every Sunday evening, one over CAC cable television channel 36 in Chicago, and the other over WJYS, Channel 62.

In the early eighties, Pastor Jacque’ received the call of Holy Spirit into the gospel ministry. At that time, she was a member of New Friendship M. B.

While serving at New Friendship, she answered the call to higher leadership when the Holy Spirit empowered her to found Anointed Word International Ministries, Inc. The call involved conducting a preaching/teaching/healing ministry to all age groups, cultures, and nationalities worldwide.
Pastor Jacque’ is sixth of seven children, born to Edward (deceased) and Mattie Starks, who a couple of years ago, left this earth for eternity at the age of 97 ½ years old.

Concurrently, during the last thirteen years of her tenure with the school system, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, she founded the dynamic apostolic cutting-edge ministry, entitled Anointed Word International Ministries, Inc.
