Melvin Keith Jenkins

Melvin Keith Jenkins is the senior pastor and teacher of the Greater Shiloh Deliverance (G.S.D.) Ministries in Detroit, MI. A proud native of Ecorse, MI, he has been a minister of the Holy Gospel for more than 18 years. He started as a deacon under the senior leadership of late Supt. John R. Gaudy. In the mid-1990s, he began to preach the Gospel and became an ordained minister.

Pastoral Ministry 

His pastoral ministry began in the basement of his home in 1998 with his wife, his three children, and his nephew. God gave favor to G.S.D. from the beginning because within six months, the ministry grew from six members to 150! The Lord also blessed the ministry with a beautiful edifice in Westland, MI. Since 2007, the ministry has relocated to the city of Detroit.

Personal Background

Pastor Jenkins earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Central State University in Wilberforce, OH. He continued his learning by taking courses on divinity within the Church of God in Christ (COGIC).

He has been a member of the Burning Bush District in Southwest #1 for more than 16 years, and is now a member, along with his ministry, of The Kingdom United Fellowship.

A Man of God 

A personable and humble man, he is honored to speak within the Detroit Metro area as God calls him. Pastor Jenkins is noted for his realist messages. He has been married to his best friend, Monica Sellers-Jenkins, for the past 26 years and is the father of five daughters and one son.

First Lady Monica Sellers-Jenkins

First Lady Monica Sellers-Jenkins was born and raised in Detroit, MI. She has been married to the love of her life for 26 years. She is a devoted wife, the mother of five wonderful daughters, one son, two fantastic son-in-laws, and one grandson.

The Woman We Call Lady J

Monica accepted the Lord at a young age and enjoyed serving as the president of the usher board and choir director. Now affectionately known as Lady J, she is the sustaining force standing in the gap for her husband and the church God gave him to birth.


She also operates in the call of God upon her life to minister to hurting people and is the director of the women's ministry at Greater Shiloh Deliverance Ministries. She is an awesome teacher, life coach, marriage counsellor, and advocate for children. Through her powerful teaching and the enlightenment of others, she spreads the unadulterated word of God and chooses to do God's will despite the obstacles.

Her Favorite Biblical Verse

Lady J's favorite scripture is Galatians 2:20, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”
