Dr. Ryan Jackson is the Senior Pastor of The Capital Church in Garner, North Carolina.
In 1995, Ryan Jackson received his B. A. in Religion and graduated summa cum laude as salutatorian of his class at Emmanuel College. He continued his studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts where he won several scholarships and, in 1998, he received his Master of Divinity, graduating magna cum laude. He received the Doctorate of Philosophy degree from Cambridge University in May 2009.
Ryan’s enthusiasm for learning is surpassed only by his passion about preaching. “I want to proclaim God’s Word in the power of His Spirit in a way that is applicable to people’s needs,” Ryan said. “The words written by the apostle Paul to Timothy – Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage with great patience and careful instruction – these words were burned into my soul when I accepted God’s call on my life to preach the Gospel. I am thankful that God has given me great zeal for communicating His timeless truth. To this calling I have committed my life. I pray that I will always be found faithful.
He is married to the former Emily Wood. They have two daughters, Liliann and Elianna.
