Jennifer N. Harris Thompson has a vast history of working with people in need, starting with her nursing background on Medical Surgical and Ortho-Trauma units. She has also assisted doctors in the care of pregnant women in Labor and Delivery and the operating room, and with the care of premature infants in the NICU. While attending to expectant mothers she worked as a Doula, and a Certified Lactation Consultant. For several years while still in Health Care, she joined the Social Service field, and worked as a Medical and Legal Advocate for survivors of Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence.
After working in helping professions for over 10 years, Jennifer returned to school to obtain a second degree. She pursued her dream of becoming a Broadcast Journalist, and graduated with her degree in Broadcast Journalism from DePaul University. She was a freelance writer, and an On-Air Host for an inspirational radio station for several years, before God blessed her and she began working for an ABC, and FOX affiliate in Illinois, as a Producer and Reporter. After just four months, she began anchoring segments of the four-hour long morning news broadcast.
Jennifer attended and graduated from ministry school at Living Word School of Ministry, and is a Licensed Minister under Faith Ministries Alliance, which is founded by Dr. Bill Winston. Minister Harris is also an On-Air Host for an inspirational station, and is also the founder of Marvellous Light Ministries, and More Than Conquerors Praise Dance Ministry. She began her ministry as a prayer warrior, praying for the sick in hospitals, and by preparing food, and giving it to those in need on Chicago’s west side. While ministering to them, she offered prayer, handed out bibles, and offered them the opportunity to receive Christ.
