District Five

District Missionary Maybelle Jackson serves as the Jurisdictional Women Department Chair for the Women’s Bible Training Institute and District Missionary for District Five.  She believes she has been called to serve and to provide help in the ministry wherever her gifts and talents are needed and received.

Missionary Maybelle Jackson has been a faithful member of the Church of God in Christ for more than 40 years.  She was saved under the leadership of Elder James Murray and joined Murray Temple COGIC at the age of 12.  She has remained committed to the church and dedicated to her calling to salvation.  She describes herself as a “servant” of Christ with many roles.  She is a wife, a mother, and a professional nurse practitioner.  She has been married to Elder Johnny Ray Jackson for 40 years and they have three children.

She is a graduate of North Natchez High School.  She received an undergraduate degree from Alcorn State University (ASU) in 1985, a graduate degree from the University of Mississippi in 1992 and a postgraduate Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) certificate from Alcorn State University in 1997.  She has a DNP from the University of Tennessee in 2009 and a Ph.D. in Nursing from Southern University in 2015.  She holds a Bachelor of Theology degree (2012) from New Foundation Theological Seminary.  She gives God the credit for all of the dreams he has allowed her to accomplish.

She is a silent (no fanfare) diligent worker in the house of God.  She has served as a dishwasher, captain for the pastor’s appreciation, “fill in” Sunday school secretary, tutor, mentor, Sunday school teacher, YWCC president, S.S. Field Representative, District Missionary’s “helper”, vice president of the Education Committee, and she is a Women’s Department cabinet member.

Missionary Jackson has had miracles in her life including been completely healed of cancer in 2002.  She believes that she is “Blessed to be a blessing” and that “all the glory, the honor and the praise belongs to God!”
