  • Rev. James Jackson - Pastor

    James became our pastor on September 17, 2017.  Glynwood Baptist Church is very blessed to have James, his wife, Trish and sons, Caleb and Joshua as part of our family.


    James began a relationship with Christ when he was in first grade, and he felt the Lord leading him to ministry in the fourth grade. He holds a degree in English from Georgia State University, as well as a Master of Divinity in Christian Education with an emphasis in Children’s Ministry from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He likes to vacation at the beach, and his favorite snack is Pepperidge Farm Milano Salted Carmel Cookies. He is an avid coffee drinker, and he also enjoys reading, writing, juggling, and running. He likes any movie by Pixar, and some of his favorite TV shows include “This is Us,” “The West Wing,” and “Lost.” His favorite books include Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, Hillbilly Elegy by JD Vance, A Little Book on the Christian Life by John Calvin, and Against Calvinism by Roger Olsen. One piece of advice he holds dear is “Do not neglect the Lord of the work in your pursuit of the work of the Lord.” –Algie Morgan.
