Obituary for Jerome D. McIntosh


Apostle Jerome Darnell McIntosh was born April 12, 1969 in Hamilton, OH to Anna L. Wilder (nee McIntosh) and Norman Darnell Maxwell. Jerome was a faithful man of God who professed Christ at the tender age of 11 at United Missionary Baptist Church, Middletown, Ohio under Rev. Donald Clay. His life’s journey took him to California where he lived with aunts and uncles for his sophomore and junior years of High School before returning home which allowed him to graduate from Hamilton High School in 1987 where his love of performing allowed him to win numerous talent shows and participate in the Rhapsody Chorus.

Not too long thereafter as an active member of Power of Deliverance, Middletown, OH where he sang in the choir, Jerome met and married Michelle Harrison (nee Canty) in 1991 and to that union was born Jonathan Jerome and Jasmine Joy, whom he loved more than anything. Out of all the titles he carried Dad was his favorite. He coached and enjoyed watching his children participate in various sports and he often accompanied them on field trips, out of town games and competitions.

He began his career with Provident Bank in the late 1990’s as a mail room clerk and later moved up to a mortgage loan processor. He left Provident Bank in the spring of 2005 to pursue his passion for theater. In the summer of 2005, Jerome launched the successful production company, “God’s Champion Entertainment” where he served as: Founder, Playwright, Producer, Director and Actor. Jerome enjoyed traveling around the region with his production team where they performed in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Louisville and Indianapolis. He then added to his credits “Broken Pieces” the movie. In 2006 he went to work for Delta/Comair and most recently was employed with Meritor until he was no longer able to work due to illness.

During his lifetime, Jerome served several church ministries and was an active member of: Israel Baptist, Power of Deliverance, Word of Deliverance Ministries, Tyrus Christian Fellowship and Christ Image Church.

During his time at Word of Deliverance Ministries under the Pastorate of Bishop Bobby Hilton, Jerome founded the Watchgate Security Ministry as well as developed the church ministry's drama team.

To add to his many talents Jerome was an excellent cook who was best known for his Dirty Cajun Rice, Jerk and Garlic Parmesan baked Turkey, his infamous green beans and certainly cannot leave out his Romey Fries (Delisa’s personal favorite).

It was in January of 2007 that he met his current wife Delisa and later came to marry her on his birthday in 2008. Jerome and Delisa were inseparable and they truly loved being in each others company. On September 11, 2010 Jerome answered the call on his life and was ordained a pastor under the tutelage of Apostle Eunique Collier of Christ Image Church. Following the passing of his beloved Apostle Collier, Pastor McIntosh founded God’s Vision Kingdom Ministries in September 2013 and held his first service in his living room. In November 2013 he was elevated to the office of Apostle under the tutelage of Apostle Ron Banks of Power and Faith Ministries.

Apostle Jerome took ill in January 2014 and realized that help was needed to keep the vision of “Educating God’s People about God’s Vision for His Kingdom” alive. God answered that prayer by adding ministry Overseers Apostles Frank & Stacie Johnson to the ministry's Leadership Team that already consisted of Apostle Margaret Kelley-Adams and Pastor Doris Stokes Knight.

Jerome is proceeded in death by his stepfather Elliot Wilder and leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife Delisa (nee Isabel), son Jonathan, grandson Josiah, granddaughter Makeda, daughter Jasmine, mother Anna L. Wilder (nee. McIntosh), brothers Mark and Mike Wilder, Kenneth McIntosh (Nerissa) and Dwayne Wilder, father Norman Maxwell, sister Normelle Maxwell, brothers Jaimil Maxwell (Desiree) and Damion Maxwell, father-in-law James Isabel, Sr. (Jerilyn Sue) and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, friends, church members and spiritual children.
