Pastor Kim Jackson
Kim was born and raised overseas as part of a Foreign Service family. Aside from the cities where she lived with her family and served as a mission co-worker, home for Kim is Washington, D.C.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Arts in history (English literature minor) from Virginia Tech, a Master of Arts in international affairs from The George Washington University, a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary (Biblical Studies emphasis), and a Doctor of Ministry, also from Wesley (spirituality and story). Her doctoral project and paper are entitled: “Lessons from Rwanda—Moving Through and Beyond Clergy Betrayal.”
Prior to entering seminary, Kim worked in the Federal government, corporate, missional, and non-profit worlds. Following graduation from seminary, she launched a small business in the field of visual arts and communication, focusing on photography, print, and digital media, while supporting churches, non-profits, educational institutions, and arts organizations.
Eventually, full-time ministry called, leading Kim to serve congregations in various staff and pastoral roles in Florida, Minnesota, Georgia, Colorado, and, most recently, Delaware.
Kim’s callings include worship, spiritual growth, missions, and art, and the ways in which they are incorporated in ministry and faith formation. Kim is also passionate about engaging with those around the world in need of reconciliation and healing found through justice and mercy.
Kim has a Labrador pup, Jedi, and loves to spend her free time walking outdoors, creating art, reading, watching movies, traveling far and wide, and deepening relationships with dear friends.
