Director of Missions

Dr. Walter C. Jackson

I was born and raised in Houston and graduated from Houston Baptist University in 1985. I earned a Master of Divinity in December of 1988 from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. I earned a Doctorate of Ministry and a PHD from Trinity Theological Seminary in Newbourgh, Indiana, in 2014. I served as Youth Minister in three churches from 1982 to 1989. After pastoring four churches in Texas in 22 years, I became the Director of Missions for the Guadalupe Baptist Association in June of 2012. My wife Lisa and I have been married since 1988 and are blessed with 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. What I love about this ministry is being an encourager and helper of churches.
