Welcome to Jackson Church!

We are a family oriented, contemporary Christian church located in Jackson, NJ that is dedicated to LOVE like Jesus, LEARN to deepen our faith, and LIVE out the Good News of Jesus Christ in our lives.  The best way to get to know us is to learn about what we do.  We believe that faith should be more than just a Sunday service; it should be a journey that helps to build your relationship with Christ.  That is why we offer weekly programs, such as Sunday School, enrichment programs, and youth group for the kids and outreach opportunities, bible studies, and volunteer opportunities for teens and adults.  All of our programs are open to the entire community.

Come to one of the weekend worship services to learn more about who we are and meet us in person.  If you have been a attending for a while now, we invite you to get plugged in, either through a bible study, volunteering your time, or serving on a committee.

Brief History

Jackson Church was formed in the early 1990’s by a group of people from various small churches (Harmony UMC, Whitesville UMC, Cassville UMC, and Southard UMC) in Jackson, NJ.  We met in Switlik Elementary School until our current building was built in 1999-2000. Our founding pastor was Rev. Dr. Ken Sloane. Our subsequent lead pastors have been Rev. Jean McMullen (2001-2004), and Rev. Wayne Jones (2004-2010). We have had two Associate Pastors: Rev. Barbara Novak, and Rev. Gene Erickson. Out of Jackson Church was Rev. Douglas Rea, who answered God’s call upon his life and was ordained. Currently under the leadership of Pastor Joe Tiedemann, Jackson Church continues to grow and reach out towards the community that it came from.
