Senior Pastor Timothy Phillip Jackson
Pastor Tim is a true people person, passionate orator, and transparent servant leader. After giving his life to Christ at the tender age of 15, he has never looked back or lost his passion for the Word. As a teenager, the Lord called him to “Preach My Word with boldness” and that’s exactly what he does. From preaching his first revival at 16 years old to evangelizing on street corners in North Minneapolis to ministering to young boys at the Hennepin County Home School, Pastor Tim has spent his entire adult life meditating on God’s Word and sharing the love and hope of Christ.
Pastor Tim has a special passion for reaching men and sees their transformation as the key to healing families and impacting communities. His message of truth balanced with grace, and laced with humor, is infused with down-to-earth, real life wisdom from his nearly 30 years of business experience as a seasoned commercial printer. Pastor Tim is an accomplished musician and worshipper in spirit and truth. A genuine man of faith, Pastor Tim is committed to taking the Kingdom of God to all the nations. As a lifelong learner, he graduated in June 2017 from Bethel University with honors in Organizational Leadership and Christian Ministry. He is currently continuing his educational journey as a Dr. Richard Wallace Scholar at Luther Seminary in pursuit of a M.Div. with a concentration in Justice and Reconciliation.

Pastors Tim and Jessica Jackson are known as a "dynamic duo" by their IMPACTOR family and throughout the Twin Cities community. God united their hearts in marriage on August 15, 2003 and launched them into ministry two years later on
July 3, 2005. They joyfully serve as co-laborers with Christ, through strong “together” anointing based on their foundational scripture, “How can two walk together except they agree.” (Amos 3:3)
