Minister Jeffery Wayne Jackson has been in the ministry since his calling in 1980. He came to the Lord in 1976 at New Canaan Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Minister Jackson has been married for 39 years to Sheree Angela Jackson of Washington, D.C. They have six beautiful daughters, six grandchildren and one surrogate son.
Early in his salvation and his calling, Pastor Jackson was under the leadership of his father in the ministry, Pastor Terry D. Streeter (Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.). Minister Jackson has received training from Washington Bible College in Washington, D.C., Western Seminary in Portland, OR, is currently matriculating at the Andersonville Theological Seminary, Camilla, GA, and has attended numerous seminars and conferences throughout the country. His compassion for people has permitted him to have traveled not only in the United States of America, but also abroad to other continents as well—teaching, training, and preaching the Word of God.
Minister Jackson has had the distinguished honor of being the Assistant Pastor of Carmody Hills Baptist Church (Seat Pleasant, MD); Senior Pastor of Greater Beulah Baptist Church (Washington, D.C.); the Organizer and Pastor of Friendship Christian Fellowship (Beaverton, OR); the Director of Christian Education under Pastor Terry D. Streeter at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church (Washington, D.C.); Assistant to the Pastor at St. John Baptist Church of Marshall Heights, S.E. (Washington, D.C.); and currently serves as the Organizer and Senior Pastor/Teacher of Friendship Christian Fellowship Ministries (Forestville, MD).
When asked about himself, he simply says that he loves the Lord and that he’s been saved to serve. His testimony scripture is taken from Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Minister Jackson currently serves as the Director of Christian Education at New Hope Baptist Church under the leadership of Bishop Robert E. White.
