Pastor Arthur Jackson, III
Rev. Arthur Jackson, III has served as Senior Pastor of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church of Miami Gardens, Florida since March 8, 1991. A native of South Florida, Pastor Jackson was born to Reverend and Mrs. Arthur Jackson, Jr. on May 5, 1964.
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” members to a blossoming ministry of over 7,000 that continues to grow at record pace. A second church location is operating in Fort Lauderdale and 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. Phase I, a 17,500 square foot Worship Center, was already been completed under his leadership. Another building project, a state of the art sanctuary slated to seat over 3000, is in progress, and will be completed within the next year, adding an additional 56,000 square feet to our Campus.
Pastor Jackson humbly serves God and his community through the fifty-two ministries established at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church of Miami Gardens. 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 Ms. Kimberly Rushin and the proud father to Jaden Jackson.
