is an anointed Licensed Evangelist Missionary, author and profound speaker who advocates for Women in the areas of personal growth and development. She is a woman given to prayer and consecration and she is a committed intercessor. A strong gift of discernment is what enhances her ability to uncover and bring clarity to many complex situations.
As a graduate of California State University, Los Angeles, Jacques earned a bachelor’s degree in finance, and currently she works in the health care arena with UCLA Health Systems as an Instructional Designer. Additionally, she is a certified behavioral analyst, conflict and mediation specialist, corporate image consultant, and professional development consultant.
Jacques is a leader amongst leaders, with an exceptional gift of administration. She is the founder of Women Inspired Through Networking Elements Sister to Sister (W.I.T.N.E.S.S.) Book Club, a unique Christian literary ministry that was launched in 1995. For twenty years she led the women of W.I.T.N.E.S.S. Book Club on a journey to live victoriously, mind, body and spirit; and live purposeful lives as they embraced and activated practical Biblical truths.
W.I.T.N.E.S.S. Book Club is much more than a book club! Our motto is, “I Am My Sister’s Keeper”. The sisters of W.I.T.N.E.S.S. Book Club spearheaded community outreach programs, as they served those who were disenfranchised. Health and wellness programs were developed that reached women of all ages and weekly intercessory prayer was at the heart of all that they accomplished.
Jacques is a woman of courage who steps outside of her comfort zone to accomplish her dreams and goals, and she challenges the women of W.I.T.N.E.S.S. Book Club, and all who she encounters to do the same. She recently published her new book, “Life Happens: 30 Strategies for Triumphant Living.” In this 30 day devotional, Jacques bears witness of how she triumphed in the face of adversity and unpredictable life challenges. Readers will be encouraged to develop a deeper, more meaningful walk with the Lord and to stand strong when Life Happens.
To quote Jacques, “I continue to burn with passion for women to fully understand who God created us to be, and for us to fully exude that authentically and confidently without excuses or apologies in every facet of our lives. It is my desire that all women love who God created us to be, (flaws and all), not comparing ourselves to anyone else, because we are His UNIQUE creation. As we embrace our uniqueness, our personal style will emanate from the depth of our being.”
She has been a dedicated wife to Pastor David McNeil, since 1995 and together they are the proud parents of their miracle child, the beautiful Micaela McNeil.
