In October 1998, Monument of Joy Breakthrough Outreach Ministries was birthed through Apostle Zoe El, meeting at 3539 Ocean View Avenue in Norfolk, Virginia. A few of the ministries in operation were the Transitional Home and the Food Ministry, in which Apostle Zoe El reached out to the lost. At that time, Apostle Zoe El embraced the Ocean View area, with the help of God, oftentimes going door to door in the neighborhood alone.

In 2000, God showed Apostle Zoe El the new home for the ministry, and Monument of Joy Breakthrough Outreach Ministries moved to 3032 Tidewater Drive, Norfolk, Virginia, and became Monument of Joy Community Church. The ministry continues to grow and excel in the Kingdom under the leadership of Apostle Zoe El where countless souls have been saved, mentored, and filled with the Holy Ghost. The Balm in Gilead HIV/Aids/Substance Abuse Ministry was birthed in March 2004 to set the captives free and preach the gospel to hurting people.

In 2007, Apostle Zoe El pursued motivational speaking under the mentorship of Les Brown. Shortly thereafter, he joined the Les Brown Speaker’s Bureau Network and authored the national best seller “Pattern of Purpose”.

Apostle Zoe El received his Minister’s license from the Grand Old COGIC. He received his undergraduate degree from Virginia Union University and earned an honorary Doctorate Degree from Norfolk Theological Seminary. Most of all, Apostle Zoe El is about a good work and will not come down
