Bishop Wiley Jackson
Bishop Wiley Jackson is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. At an early age, Bishop Jackson knew he had a special calling in his life to be of service to people and change the world
Coming from a very humble beginning, the importance of family was ingrained into him and his four siblings. They were a close knit family who were very creative in providing their own entertainment. Whether they were rolling down the hill in makeshift wagons, shooting, hoops, putting parts together to make a bike, or swimming at the Boys Club, they enjoyed times of togetherness. Basketball was a generational passion. As a young man in school, his athleticism kicked into high gear. He attended South Georgia College where he accepted his calling into the ministry. Bishop Jackson also attended and graduated from Beulah Heights University. He is the author of two books, "Born to Overcome" and "Uncommon Faith".
Bishop Jackson provides religious, social, financial, and other guidance to parishioners at his Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral
Bishop Jackson and his ministry partner Mary Jackson have been married for twenty-two years and are the proud parents of two sons, Wiley III and Paul.
