Dr. Jasmin “Jazz” Sculark to be Installed as New Pastor of Jericho City of Praise by Bishop T.D. Jakes


On Sunday, September 7, 2014 Jericho City of Praise (JCOP) will officially install Dr. Jasmin “Jazz” Sculark as the new pastor to lead the ministry of one of the largest churches in the country.   This event will mark history; Dr. Jazz will serve as one of the youngest women to lead a mega church in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.

Dr. Jasmin Sculark, nationally and internationally known as Pastor, Teacher, Author, Evangelist and better known in the Christian community as “Dr. Jazz, The Daughter of Thunder,” was named Pastor-Select at JCOP in Landover, Maryland in March 2014. Since then nearly 500 people have joined the church as members under her leadership.

“I am going to build on the legacy of Apostle Betty Peebles,” Dr. Jasmin “Jazz” Sculark said in a statement. “I am not coming to lay a foundation; I am coming to build upon a foundation that has already been laid. I am excited about what God will do with Jericho City of Praise and the people in the D.C. Metropolitan area.”

“We are excited to have Dr. Jazz as our Pastor. Her ability to connect with us at every level and the anointed teaching she brings to us not only on Sunday but by her presence daily is refreshing and real. We love our Pastor!” stated the Board the Trustees.

Dr. Jazz, is a native of Trinidad and Tobago. She received her license to preach the Gospel in 1992 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church of Washington, D.C. and has since built a worldwide ministry and is no stranger to large crowds. She has preached at the historic Hampton Minister’s conference, world renowned MegaFest in 2013 (Woman Thou Art Loosed) hosted by Bishop T.D. Jakes and made such an impact with her powerful message to an audience of over 25,000, she has been invited back and will be a featured speaker at this year’s Woman Thou Art Loosed “The Wait Is Over” October 2-4, in Atlanta, GA.

    It’s beyond me why Dr.
    Jazz would put herself in the middle of this mess which has been going on for 4
    years. All the publicity and hype and ignoring the law suits and ungodly behavior
    of her employers. It’s a hot mess. Nobody is fooled by this. She is making a spectacle of herself. Image her embarrassment when the City of
    Praise returns and she has to leave. She
    has shined the spot light on herself and her reputation has taken a hit. It’s a shame because she is talented but
    obviously lacking character and good judgment.
