Jolea Jensen

We thank the Lord for sending Jolea to our Bible college! He has used her to greatly multiply the number of students who can receive piano instruction—a huge need among churches here. Her ministry has also contributed to the advance of a sacred style of music and the promotion of BJMBC in the Philippines.

Jolea Jensen, Missionary to the Philippines

The board of Gospel Fellowship Association Missions accepted me as a career missionary on April 18, 2008. I have been serving as a full-time career missionary since October 2010.

I grew up in a Christian home. My father is a pastor, and he and my mother taught me about God from the time I was young. I accepted the Lord as my Savior on October 16, 1983. I was in Sunday School class, and I asked my teacher after the lesson if I could get saved. She knelt with me beside a chair, and led me as I prayed the sinner’s prayer. The Lord gave me a desire to know more about Him, so I was soon spending time reading my Bible and praying. I surrendered my life to full-time Christian service when I reached my teen-age years.
