“Why We Remember and Why We Need To: That We Might Know” Rev. Joe Jackson

Drawing from Psalm 78:1-8, the idea of teaching God’s Laws to the children, that each generation might know, comes the same thought that everyone in each generation might know and understand Black History. My presentation, taken from a couple resources including personal experience, will address “why we remember and why we need to.”

Pastor Joseph H. Jackson, Jr. was born in Lexington, Kentucky. He was raised in a two-parent household, but it was his grandmother who acquainted him with the teaching of Christ and the church during his childhood. Pastor Jackson studied at the Moody Bible Institute Extension and the Baptist Seminary of Kentucky. He was licensed to preach in 1988 and ordained to minister in 1992. He served in various organizations and churches in Kentucky before being called to serve as pastor at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Milwaukee. He is a past-president of MICAH (Milwaukee Inner-city Congregations Allied for Hope) and his church is an an active member of that organization.
