Yvonne Elizabeth Brooks is the First Assistant Pastor of New Jerusalem Apostolic Church – a thriving church that is having a huge impact in its community. She is also the founder and Director of Women of Purpose Ministries; a UK based organisation that seeks to spread the gospel to all women and equip them to fulfil their destiny.
A qualified Behavioural Consultant, Mental Health Nurse and Registered General Nurse, Yvonne’s passion for seeing people receive deliverance, healing and restoration is evident as she ministers. She has helped many people change the course of their life by delivering the true Word of God in her dynamic and unique way of connecting to the hearts of people.
She is also a much sought after speaker, in demand across the United Kingdom, Europe, the Caribbean, the USA and more recently in Africa. She is a preacher, teacher, counsellor and friend to all who cross her path. Additionally, she has presented on television and radio including co-presenting She Matters on Revelation TV and her most recent project has been co-presenting on Womenz World on OHTV.
“Touching God’s Heart: Prayers that make a difference” – is Yvonne’s first audio book. It is a well needed tool for many who seek to get closer to God through prayer but sometimes do not know the words to pray. The CD accompanied by the book will guide the reader into developing their own purposeful and rewarding prayer life.
Pastor Yvonne has completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies and a Doctorate in Theology and Biblical Studies. This is testament to her desire to grow and develop to enable her to be a blessing to others. She was recognised with an award from the Association of Jamaican Nationals for being a local hero in the Community and also the Women of Excellence Trailblazer Award. In March 2013 she was recognised for her work as a woman in ministry and received the award in this category from the Wise Women Awards.

Brooks who is the Senior Pastor at New Jerusalem and she is mother to their three talented children; psalmist Rebecca (who is married to Patrick), is renowned for her powerful and dynamic vocal talent, Adam (who is married to Estelle) is an accomplished keyboard player, and last but not least Matthew who is a very skilled drummer.
