Rev. Dr. John E. Jackson, Sr.

Rev. Dr. John E. Jackson, Sr., Founder and Senior Pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ-Gary is dedicated to the cause of Jesus Christ to serve this present age. Pastor Jackson with the powerful help of Jesus Christ has taken Trinity UCC-Gary from a church with no members, no money and no building to a rapidly growing church with their own building and looking to expand. God has truly been good!

Pastor Jackson believes deeply in the words of Jesus "To love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength and Mind…" To that end Pastor Jackson has a Bachelor's Degree from Loyola University Chicago, Master of Divinity degree from McCormick Theological Seminary and is working toward his Doctor of Ministry from United Theological Seminary.

Pastor Jackson holds sacred both arms of the Cross; the vertical arms allow us to connect with heaven for the holy power to carry out the work of liberation on the horizontal. To that end Pastor Jackson believes that the Church of Jesus Christ should be the one place in life where anybody can come with any problem they have and get an answer to that problem.

Pastor Jackson works tirelessly in the community of Gary, with National organizations like the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference while at the same time seeking collaborations with the global community to be a voice for the voiceless and bring justice to the oppressed.

Pastor Jackson is married to Janiece Nadine Jackson and they are the parents of Derrick L. Jackson, John E. Jackson, Jr., and Laniece N. Jackson.
