About us

The Church

Jars of Clay Ministry was established on February 9, 2002.  II Corinthians 4:7  says, "But we have this treasure in Jars of Clay, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us."  This scripture was birthed into our Apostle out of the Spirit of God to derive the name for the church.  Here at Jars of Clay Ministry we understand that Jesus Christ is the head of the church and we follow the unction of His leading.
