Jakob W. Janzen, leading minister of Sergeyevka-Alexandertal Mennonite Brethren Church of the Fürstenland Mennonite settlement in Russia. Janzen was ordained to the ministry in 1892 and had charge of the congregational church records after 1889. The statistics of 1905 (H. Dirks) and the address book of Mennonite ministers (D. H. Epp) of 1913 list him as a minister of this congregation. Nothing is known about his later activities.
