Meet Our Pastor
Reverend Arthur Jackson, III has served as Senior Pastor/Teacher of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, since March 8, 1991. A native of South Florida, Pastor Jackson is the son of Reverend and Mrs. Arthur Jackson, Jr.
Pastor Jackson was licensed as a Minister on October 9, 1988, at the New Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Miami, Florida where he served as an Associate Minister under the leadership of his father, Rev. Arthur Jackson, Jr. Pastor Jackson earned the degree of Master of Divinity from Virginia Union University, to further broaden his perspective in exegesis, counseling, leadership, preaching and teaching.
A man of great character, integrity, wisdom, and counsel, Pastor Jackson’s consistent obedience to God has taken the Antioch congregation from the “Faithful Fifty” to a blossoming ministry of over 7,000 that continues to grow at record pace. In 2017, a second campus was established in the Fort Lauderdale area, and it continues to grow, making Antioch “one church in two locations” serving the Kingdom of God.
To accommodate the tremendous membership growth, several phases of building expansions have been realized under the direction of Pastor Jackson.
It is a worship center with a mixture of modern and traditional design elements with activities and spaces for ministry to all ages and the community at large, suited to minister to the lost, making disciples according to the mandate of God’s Word.
Pastor Jackson humbly serves God and his community through over 50 ministries established at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. His insightful and inspiring messages tackle and provide relevant, practical solutions to issues ranging from personal crisis, emotional upheavals, relationships, spiritual growth, and fellowship through the Holy Spirit, and the list goes on. Pastor Jackson’s dynamic style of preaching demonstrates a keen sensitivity and awareness of the needs of God’s people. Potent, prolific and practical are words that characterize both his ministry and his person.
He is sought over much of the United States and Caribbean as an evangelist, speaker and lecturer, spreading the Good News of the Gospel. He is married to the former Kimberly Rushin and the proud father to Jaden Jackson. Seeking to serve, he is a member of the fraternal organizations, Kappa Alpha Psi and Sigma Pi Phi.
