Rev. Roger Jackson
Pastor Jackson is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Queens. He and his wife Kim have been happily married for over 18 years.

Before his present ministerial assignment, Pastor Jackson served at the following churches: St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of Vanderveer Park, St. James United Methodist Church in Lynbrook, NY; First United Methodist Church of Hollis Queens, NY; First Roosevelt United Methodist Church and he served as a volunteer preacher for Sunday Services at the Far Rockaway Mission Center.
As part of the process of becoming an Ordained Elder, Pastor Jackson completed supervised ministry stints at Grace United Methodist Church in Valley Stream and Wesley United Methodist Church in Franklin Square, New York.
Pastor Jackson received his call to ministry while attending Springfield Gardens United Methodist Church under the Pastoral Leader of Rev. Dr. Cecil B. Stone. Pastor Jackson spent ten years serving this loving and accepting congregation as a member of the Church’ ministerial staff.
Pastor Jackson is a graduate of New Brunswick Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Management from Nyack College and an Associate Degree in Business Management from the Borough of Manhattan Community College.
Out of all his accomplishments, that which stands head and shoulders above the rest was his good sense to have one day said YES to Jesus Christ when he Called him out of a world of darkness to become a disciple of His.
Pastor Jackson is trying to live a life emblematic of the fact that, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” ~Galatians 2:20
