About Allen Jackson
Pastor Allen Jackson brings a biblical perspective to the everchanging world, encouraging believers to lead with their faith in every arena.
Allen Jackson Ministries is the media ministry of World Outreach Church, located in Middle Tennessee. With a congregation of multiplied thousands, Pastor Allen still fondly refers to it as a “little country church,” because that’s how it began—as a small Bible study in his parents’ home.
As the son of a veterinarian, assisting his father with the care of horses and other animals, he often says he was “raised in a barn.” But his life journey has proven to be impactful. He holds degrees from Oral Roberts University and Vanderbilt University, and has studied at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
As Senior Pastor of World Outreach Church since 1989, he is fully committed to the mission of helping people become more fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Now, through Allen Jackson Ministries, the goal is to extend the reach of that mission through television, radio, the Internet, books, and more.
World Outreach Church is an inter-denominational church who believes the fundamentals found within the Apostles’ Creed:
APOSTLES’ CREED: “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into Hades; the third day He rose again from the dead: He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.”
