Jackie has served as as the Administrative Assistant at GABC South since January 2021. She previously worked at GABC Tyler since April 2017 in Human Resources and Payroll.
Jackie moved to East Texas from Dallas as a child. She graduated from Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas and then transferred to the University of Texas at Tyler. She has volunteered in the ministry most of her life, and started serving in her teenage years at Mission Arlington. In her college years she began teaching children’s Sunday School, teaching Awana’s programs, and served as VBS Director. As her boys grew she transitioned to serving as “Dorm Mom” for several church camps and various other youth activities. She has also volunteered with the Embrace Grace Program for expectant first time single moms and helped mentor the young girls.
She is married to the love of her life, Matt, and they have 3 boys Christian, Hunter and Andrew. Her family loves to do anything from board games to outdoor activities, and everything in between, as long as it includes music! Her boys are older and starting to venture out into the world. Jackie and Matt have taken this opportunity to experience new adventures together. They like taking road trips, checking out new hiking locations, canoeing, and, most recently, they have started biking.
Matt and Jackie have felt called to start welcoming foster children into their home to minister, serve, and love on them for as long as needed. They have recently completed all of the requirements to become certified foster parents and are looking forward to this next chapter in their lives.
