Elect Model Ministry
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17. One of the unique ministries at JUMP is our model ministry called Elect Model Ministry. Led by Minister Nanette Washington, the ministry’s mission is to “provide an encouraging and uplifting environment where men and women can be empowered to walk out their true identity with confidence and boldness, while embracing their own beauty and uniqueness as a model for Christ”. The vision is “to demonstrate extraordinary gifts of the arts through modeling on a global runway spreading the gospel to many in the communities and churches”. As a Christian we are ambassadors for Christ in everything we do, the way we walk, talk, act and dress. The model ministry uses a catwalk as a place where individuals can share their stories of triumph over insecurity, abuse, and their past while encouraging other women and men that they too can not only triumph but look like triumph. We use fashion to tell a story of overcoming, and to remind each and every man and woman that we are created in His image, fearfully and wonderfully made and that when we show up, we should look like royalty.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:14
