9:45AM service GUEST SPEAKER:
Senior Vice President, Faith Comes By Hearing®
The son of Faith Comes By Hearing founders Jerry and Annette Jackson, Morgan has been around oral peoples since boyhood. On Native American reservations and numerous trips to Mexico, Morgan could be found eating the locals’ food, sleeping on the ground and learning how language and culture are interconnected.
As the Jackson family settled in Albuquerque and started the ministry, Morgan began working to equip churches with Audio Bibles and other spiritual resources. Early on, he formed key relationships that led to worldwide partnerships to record the Bible in every language.
Morgan travels extensively, speaking to audiences all across the world, sharing the need for God’s Word in audio. He is a modern-day adventurer with a mission and drive to see God’s Word reach into the hearts of people from every nation, tribe, language and people. His travels have taken him to the hilltops of Rwanda, the slums and villages of India and the hearts of American believers.
Morgan is a natural storyteller who easily relates to people from oral cultures. He has been called “a true champion for poor and illiterate people” because he strives to understand historical, cultural and societal obstacles that have kept their hearts closed to the message of the Bible.
His enthusiasm and passion come through as he presents the crucial and urgent need for all people to have the opportunity to hear God’s Word in their heart language.
He continues to be instrumental in developing global partnerships with organizations, ministries, foundations and donors, so that all may hear the Scriptures in their mother tongue.
Morgan and his wife Mari, who often travels with Morgan, have three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren.
