Jay Eberly

Pastor Jay is the founder of Jay Eberly Ministries (JEM). He and his wife, Debbie, travel extensively throughout the United States and overseas, bringing a supply to the fullness of this last great move of God through ministering the Word and flowing with the Holy Spirit.

Pastor Jay is also the Senior Pastor of Spirit of Faith Family Church (SOFFC), a growing and thriving body of believers in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In May of 2019, he celebrated over 32 years in the ministry.

His walk with God began as a young boy. Early in his teenage years, he became a leader of revival in his high school. When he was 18 years old, he attended Rhema Bible Training Center, where he met his lovely wife-to-be, Debbie. Together they faithfully helped in many departments at Rhema Bible Church, and eventually taught and ministered in Kenneth Hagin Ministries Prayer and Healing School. From there, they were in the traveling ministry for 12 years before pastoring.
