Reverend Anthony C. Jackson

As I surrender, I step into my greatness, allowing God to be expressed in everything I do, speak and see. I have no attachments to any outcome or out-picturing in all areas of my life, allowing greatness to express through me without self limitations.

In 1994 I was exposed to Metaphysics, and my beginning of understanding the bible (for the first time) even though I was raised in the Baptist faith. The words spoken by Reverend Elouise Oliver, touched me in a way that I’ve never previously experienced. As a result, I joined EBCRS in 1994, becoming a licensed practitioner. In 2004, I decided to attend ministerial school at The Holmes Institute in Santa Rosa, thereafter receiving a Masters Degree in Consciousness Studies in 2009.

As Assistant Minister at East Bay Church of Religious Science, I continue to surrender to the words of God/Spirit allowing my steps to truly be ordered, knowing that divine right action is always operating through me as me.
