Holly R. Jackson

Send Email

The Reverend Holly R. Jackson became pastor at UCCSV in August 2016. Previously, she served as the Minister of Christian Education at Hope UCC in Alexandria, VA. As someone who is passionate about children and families, Holly has also spent time a Stay-at-Home Parent and a School Social Worker. Holly has a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary, 2012, and a Master of Social Work from Fordham University, 1997.

Holly will tell you that she is a beloved messy child of God on a mission to make people believe in love, goodness, grace, redemption, and the inherent worth of all beings. In ministry she seeks to follow Jesus as he wades into the crazy sea of humanity preaching peace and hope to the least and lost. She deeply believes that God is still speaking and active in this world and works to help create a church that reflects that reality. She sees spiritual disciplines and justice work as two halves of the whole of what works to propel us on our spiritual path.  She believes that humor and joy make life worthwhile, that being still and silent before God is hard but necessary, and that speaking truth to power is a holy endeavor.

Holly is married to her college sweetheart and has two teenage children. They live in the Gaithersburg area with their menagerie of animals and a whole lot of love. When not focsuing on church or family you will often find her singing, crocheting, coloring, reading, and playing board games.

 

Feel free to join Holly for community office hours at Starbucks in Kingsview Village on Thursdays from 12-2pm or contact her at: HollyRJackson@gmail.com
