FIRST UNITED PENTECOSTAL CHURCH
Bishop James Jackson

In 1981, I joined the Air Force and received orders to the Philippines where someone invited me to a Pentecostal church. It was there, at the age of 20, I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and my calling to the ministry. Over the past 3 decades, I have held several positions throughout the Texas and South Texas Districts, but I am most esteemed to have been voted in as Pastor of First UPC San Antonio. On behalf of my wife, Rose, and my daughters, Hannah and Ruth, we count it an honor to serve this church.​
