The Rev. Jeff Jackson
The Rev. Jackson was called to St. Margaret's in November 2017. He grew up in the Southeast, born in Memphis, TN, then spent his early years in eastern rural Alabama before landing in Augusta, GA. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Philosophy from Berry College in Rome, then went immediately to Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA, where he graduated in 2003. He is passionate about youth and children’s ministry as well as ministry to the marginalized – the poor, the prisoner, the hungry, the outcast. He believes strongly that all are welcome at God’s table and often we have to take that table out into the world so all can receive God’s love.
Father Jeff is married to Molly and has four children, Tai (13), Bronwyn (11), Liam (8), and Grey (6). When he is not spending time with family or at work, he is also a local singer-songwriter and has played frequently in the Columbus, GA area. He recorded his first album in 2016 called Incomplete Dreams. Jeff is also an avid fan of music, beer, comic books, superhero movies, and his favorite TV show Doctor Who.
