Jennifer Watley Maxell

Rev. Jennifer Watley Maxell affectionately known as "Lady J” is a minster, educator, church co-founder, life coach, motivational speaker and preacher.  With the blessing of Bishop William P. Deveaux, former Presiding Prelate of the Sixth Episcopal District of the AME Church, Jennifer and her husband Rev. Charles A. Maxell, Jr. founded The Breakthrough Fellowship, a new church initiative located in Cobb County, Georgia.  Ever since it’s inception as a Bible study in their home, The Breakthrough Fellowship has maintained its mission of “Helping broken people find wholeness through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ’.


Jennifer continues to exemplify this mission as the founder of “The Ellipsis Experience” Conference for women and teen girls whose vision is to provide a safe space for women and girls to creatively engage their personal story and the Christ story through dynamic worship, transformative interactive workshops and anointed fellowship.


Jennifer received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from Howard University, and her Master of Divinity degree from Emory’s Candler School of Theology with Certificates in Black Church Studies and Religious Education, and was ordained an Itinerate Deacon in the AME church in May 2015.  Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in New Jersey, Jennifer currently resides in Smyrna, Georgia with her husband Charles and their three children: Madison, Charles III and Skylar.
