The preacher for this ser­vice is Rev. Ja­mar Jack­son, pas­tor of Metropoli­tan United Methodist Church, Princess Anne.

Rev. Jack­son is orig­i­nally from Bowie, MD and is the son of Ty­wana and John Jack­son. He is the grand­son of Mable and Hin­son Fin­ney. While in Bowie, he at­tended Reid Tem­ple AME Church where he re­ceived Christ and was bap­tized un­der the lead­er­ship of the Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington.

Rev. Jack­son later moved to Po­comoke City to live with his grand­par­ents and grad­u­ated from Po­comoke High School. He re­ceived an As­so­ciate’s De­gree in Elec­tri­cal Engi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy from Wor-Wic Com­mu­nity Col­lege. Af­ter­ward, he re­ceived a Bach­e­lor’s De­gree in Engi­neer­ing from Univer­sity of Mary­land, Eastern Shore.

Rev. Jack­son has been gifted in many ar­eas by God. He is a mu­si­cian and can play sev­eral in­stru­ments and loves wor­ship. His one de­sire is that God will get glory out of ev­ery area of his life. The scrip­ture that Rev. Jack­son lives by is Ro­mans 12:1-2, “There­fore, I urge you broth­ers and sis­ters, in view of God’s mercy, to of­fer your bod­ies as a liv­ing sac­ri­fice, holy and pleas­ing to God – this is your true and proper wor­ship. Do not con­form to the pat­tern of the world, but be trans­formed by the re­new­ing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and ap­prove what God’s will is – His good, pleas­ing and per­fect will.”

All United Methodist men are in­vited to share in this wor­ship ex­pe­ri­ence as well as ev­ery­one of the larger com­mu­nity. Mu­sic will be pro­vided by the Waugh Gospel Choir, with Shirley Stan­ley, the pi­anist, and un­der the di­rec­tion of Brenda Davis. Waugh Chapel is lo­cated at 425 High Street in Cam­bridge.
