What is The Sending Place School of Ministry?
A training program to develop Christian leaders with a biblical world view and to send them out equipped and prepared to pursue the individual ministry on their lives.
How did the idea of The Sending Place come about?
In 2018, the Lord spoke to Pastor Jackson in a time of prayer about days to come. Specifically, the Lord began to unfold his vision to her for a training center to be birthed. As she continued to pray while she stepped into the senior pastorate and was commissioned as an Apostle to the Body of Christ, she spoke with her spiritual father and other key prophetic voices in her life. Pastor Jackson received several confirming words of the timing and the call of God upon her life to wear the mantle of government and education and to birth institutions. The Sending Place is a part of the vision the Lord has called her to steward.
