Pastor Jackie has served as Lead Pastor at Cross Church since 2013. Since then our church has grown from 300 to over 1000 in attendance. His passion is preaching and leading the church. Along with his responsibilities as our Lead Pastor, he currently serves as the President of the Arizona Baptist Convention.  Prior to coming to Cross Church, Jackie served for 25 years as a pastor and church planter. When he is not at the church you can find him spending time with his family or at the golf course, no matter how hot it may be outside.
