During the fall of 1963, Jack attended the Church of God in Brownfield, Texas the Pastor at that time was Reverend Bill Williams. On one Sunday morning, under the Pastor’s anointed preaching, Jackie made his way to the altar and made the change that would define his life, he gave his life to Jesus Christ. After that, his faith took the utmost importance in all that he did. He studied the Bible every day, attended church when the doors were open, he taught the youth class and eventually became the District Youth Director. The Church of God moved location to Hester Street, and Reverend Charles Prince was the pastor. Jackie began teaching a class for the young married couples that attended the Church.
