Randy Jackson, Pastor
Pastor Jackson came to a saving knowledge of Christ when he was in first grade at Neuse Baptist Christian School in Raleigh, North Carolina. God called him to preach during his freshman year at Pensacola Christian College. However, a summer as a camp counselor at The Wilds Christian Camp in Brevard, North Carolina, confirmed that God was calling him to work with young people. Upon graduation in 1991 with a B. A. in youth ministries/speech, he married his college sweetheart Julie Kemp in the summer of 1992. Together they served nearly twelve years in various youth ministries in South Carolina, Michigan, and Florida before God burdened his heart to become a senior pastor. Pastor Jackson and his family moved to Estill Springs from the Orlando area in August 2003 to pastor Faith Baptist Church. He completed a Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies through Liberty University in January 2013.
Pastor Jackson has been a guest speaker at teen camps, school revivals, pastors' conferences, camp meetings, and college chapel services. As excited as he is to be called pastor, he is even more thrilled to be called dad by Kimberlie (19), a sophomore at Pensacola Christian College; Taylor (17), and Zachary (12).
