“Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus”. – I Timothy 3:8 – 13

BLACK HISTORY MONTH: AN INTERVIEW


When: Yearly

Time: 8:00am – 11:59pm

In 1926 Carter G. Woodson founded Black History Week. In 1976 during the American Bicentennial Celebration the week was expanded to the month of February. The purpose was to recognize contributions of African Americans. Q: Why is Black History Month significant? A: So, we can recognize the successes and accomplishments of a people who have not always been included in the mainstream of history.
Q: Who were your heroes growing up? A: My parents were #1 then the dads of my family. Also, men in the community: my coaches, my neighbors and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Q: What is the secret of the African-American church? A: Secret: Its preaching of the ‘Gospel’, teaching, and music. Church life is the fabric of our existence. It is where we can freely express ourselves in Christ.
There was more to this interview but limited space became an issue. I hope you take time to honor upon our African American Heritage and recognize this special month. – HBL

    Pastor

    Reverend Tommy Ray Jackson, Sr.

    Pastor: Mt. Calvary Baptist Church

    Moderator, Northeastern District Baptist Association

     

    Rev. Tommy Ray Jackson, Sr., has been our pastor since March 1990. Under his leadership and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Mt.Calvary has made substantial progress in every facet of church life. Several new ministries have been added. In 1990, he successfully spearheaded and consummated a successful building fund drive, in spite of the additional demands on his time as Moderator of the Northeastern District Baptist Association. In November of 1999 the church was able to begin construction of a new sanctuary, educational wings, administrative offices, pastor’s study and living quarters.

    On Sunday, December 3, 2000 Mt.Calvary held its inaugural celebration with family and friends in a most blessed Dedication and March-In Service. Following the construction of the new sanctuary, the old sanctuary was converted into the new fellowship hall.

    Rev. Tommy Ray Jackson, Sr. is a 1964 graduate of M.F. Nichols High School in Biloxi, Mississippi. He received an Associate Degree in Math from Mary Holmes Junior College in 1966 and a graduate of Southern University with a BA in Math in 1969.  Rev. Jackson attended Union College Graduate School in pursuit of a Master’s in Math and he attended University College of Syracuse University for his ‘MBA’ 1972.

    In the fall of 1962 he received the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the Tabernacle Baptist Church of Biloxi, MS. He received his license to preach the gospel Dec. 18, 1988 and was ordained as a minister Oct. 27, 1989 and he has been tirelessly preaching the gospel and working for the Lord ever since. In 1990, Rev. Jackson received from Rochester-Colgate Divinity School a Certificate for Black Church Studies.

    Among his many accomplishments, he has served as General Secretary and Assistant General Secretary of the Northeastern District Baptist Association (10/1990 – 10/1991); Moderator – Northeastern District Baptist Association (10/1997 – 10/2006); he has served as a Trustee: 63-65 LLC, Empire Baptist Missionary Convention of New York, Inc. (5/2003 – 10/2011); . Vice President, Area 8 of the Empire Baptist Missionary Convention of New York, Inc. (5/2003 – 10/2011). He is currently serving as Chaplain of the Historical Black Ministerial Alliance (2004 – present); and he was re-elected Moderator of the Northeastern District Baptist Association 10/2012.

    Our pastor is the organizer and chair of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March and Service of Rome, NY that is held annually on the Sunday preceding Rev. Dr. King’s birthday. He is also the organizer and founder of the ‘Voices for Christ City–Wide Crusade Ministry’. It was established in 2009 for the expressed purpose of reaching lost souls for Christ, especially our youth.

    He is married to his high school sweetheart and bride of 41 years, Sister Sandra N. Jackson and they are the proud parents of five sons: Tommy, Carnell, Paul Anthony Walker, John Jamaal, and Jommore. To God Be The Glory!
