Cindy Jacobs is an author, speaker, and teacher with a heart for discipling nations in the areas of prayer and prophetic gifts. She and Mike—her husband—co-founded Generals International in 1985. At nine years old, the Lord called Cindy when He urged her to read Psalm 2:8: “Ask of me the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the world for your possession.” That small seed God planted many years ago has sprouted and grown into an international ministry, taking Cindy to more than 100 nations of the world, where she has spoken before hundreds of thousands, including many heads of nations.
Cindy helps people walk in the ministry of prophetic intercession, equipping them to pray effectively for their families, cities, and nations. She describes her call to the nations as "an inverted homesickness," while she has strong bonds with her two children and six grandchildren back home in Dallas, she has a constant yearning to minister to unreached people globally. Through her journeys, Cindy’s heart has remained fixed on the realization that Jesus left the ninety-nine to go after the one.
Cindy has been recognized by Charisma Magazine as of one of their 40 People Who Radically Changed Our World and she is listed in the Who's Who Among American Women. She has written for Charisma Magazine, Ministry Today, and Spirit-Led Woman, and is the author of eight books, including such bestsellers as Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, The Voice of God, and Women of Destiny. She is a frequent guest on Trinity Broadcasting Network and The 700 Club, and together with Mike, co-hosts God Knows, a weekly television show that has aired to a potential audience of 800 million people in more than 200 nations in five different languages.
Cindy earned her B.A. in Music from Pepperdine University Pepperdine University Malibu, California and also completed graduate work in Music from Pepperdine. She holds honorary doctorates from Asian Theological Association for her work with unreached people groups, and from Christian International in Santa Rosa Beach, Flordia.
Mike Jacobs is co-founder of Generals International with his wife, Cindy, and speaks internationally about the spiritual dynamics of business. Mike and Cindy co-host a weekly television program called God Knows that airs in more than 200 nations in English, 105 nations in Spanish and in Russian, and 22 nations in Arabic. Mike and Cindy also provide leadership for the Reformation Prayer Network (RPN), an organization with representatives in each of the fifty United States, working to support and uphold biblical values through prayer and local action.
Mike worked in the airline industry for 17 years, mostly as an analyst and comptroller, and is a private pilot with single and multi-engine ratings. Mike holds a BS in Business Administration from Arizona State University, and along with his extensive experience in the business sector, has served as an ordained minister for more than 25 years. He holds an honorary D.Min degree from the Asian Theological Association for his work with unreached people groups.
Mike and Cindy love to travel and speak, but perhaps their favorite past time is spending time with their children, Daniel and Mary Madison, along with their six adorable grandchildren. The Jacobs make their home just outside of Dallas.
