Administrative Assistant Jackson is a native of Detroit Michigan. He is an Alumnus of Central High School. He has been a member of Seth Temple, formerly Livingston Street, which is the Mother Church of the churches of God in Christ in the state of Michigan, nearly all of his life. In May of 1967, he was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost; as a result God released an unusual anointing on his life. He began his ministry under the pasturage and tutelage of the late Bishop John Seth Bailey. On July 19, 1987 he was appointed Pastor of Seth Temple Church of God in Christ.
In March 1965, he was hired at Ford Motor Company as a Production Operator and then promoted to Production Supervisor. A year later he was promoted to Utility Supervisor; and the following year promoted to General Supervisor in Production, for which he served for 5 years. He was then transferred to Maumee Ohio Stamping Plant to assist in the opening of the new facility. He continued to be quickly promoted at Ford to: the Production Superintendent, Shift Manufacturing Manager, Quality Assurance Manager, and finally to Area Manager at the Dearborn Frame Plant, where he remained until he retired May 15, 1996.

Publishing House Board of Directors; appointed by presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. March 30, 2008, Administrative Assistant Jackson received an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Saint Thomas Christian College, Jacksonville, FL
So many persons are truly encouraged by his miraculous testimony: “From being a slave to sin to being a steward of God”. He is the founder and president of “I Am Redeemed Ministries” officially launched in 2001. This ministry is a source of encouragement to the unlearned, unsaved and the saved that “nothing is impossible with God”. February 2002, he began his radio broadcast, the “I Am Redeemed Ministry” on AM 1340.
Several years ago, the Lord gave Administrative Jackson a vision for a new edifice that would provide a shelter for battered women and children, senior housing, daycare, and many other ministries to the people of God. In July 2014, he purchased a 44,000 square foot facility in Farmington Hills Michigan, now known as Greater Seth Temple Sanctuary of Praise, mortgage free. “And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Habakkuk 2:2
Through all the paths that he has traveled; his humility has led him to this simple philosophy “When the praises go up; the blessings come down”. One of his favorite songs is “He’s Never Failed Me Yet”. To this life of “praise”, Administrative Assistant Jackson says, “TO GOD BE THE GLORY”!!
