Jay Hackett's Blog
Pastor Jay was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and gave his heart to Christ before becoming a teenager.
At the age of 23, he
gave control of his
life to Jesus and answered the call into full time ministry.
He received his B.A. in Christian Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and in 2002 began 11 years of ministry as a youth pastor, the last seven of those years right here at PCBC.
Fully expecting to spend his entire life pouring into students as his singular passion, Jay not only faithfully pastors PCBC students but has spoken at several Discipleship Now weekend retreats across the denomination, led many of our students through various levels of Student Leadership University (SLU), was a contributing writer for a youth devotional book published by SLU, and spoke at the Oct 2012 Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally at Marist High School.
Well-known in our community as a strong positive influence on students, Jay
recently led the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Norcross High School
and worked closely with the Norcross football team by teaching at a fall scrimmage and preaching at Monday evening suppers provided for the team by PCBC Life Groups
This resulted in dozens of the players accepting Christ as their personal Savior.
credits the openness of students to the gospel and their willing obedience to the Savior as having impacted his
own walk significantly.
In 2012, God led Jay
on a journey that expanded his
heart and passion to include all aspects of the mission and ministry of His
church and to serve His
church from a senior pastor position right here at PCBC
As a pastor committed to boldly proclaiming the truth of God's Word and to loving the people God has called him to shepherd, Jay's heart desire is that PCBC
will be a place characterized by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, the persistent growth of believers who connect with one another and do life together, and a powerful witness to the community by a body of believers committed to serve others and to make an eternal impact for the kingdom.
