Stephen and Heather Jackson

MAI Location: Charlotte

Job Responsibility: Urban Eagles - Birchcroft





After growing up in Virginia (Heather) and Florida (Stephen) we ended up meeting each other during our time at Montreat College, where we both attended and played soccer. Both us gave our lives fully to the Lord during our first year at Montreat and have never been the same since! We married the day after Stephen's graduation and moved to Charlotte to join MAI. We have been married for 3 years, have lived in Birchcroft for almost 3 years, and have a 1 year old daughter named Kiah who is such a joy!!

How & why did you become a MAI Missionary?   

We both heard the Lord call us to become an MAI missionary while we were in college and while we were a part of the Chicago Eagles Summer Academy program. Our passions in life, Jesus, soccer, relationships, people, cross-cultural ministry, all collided together in the Chicago Eagles Academy and we knew and heard the call that we were created to do sports ministry! Applying and joining staff with MAI was our first priority after college and we are so blessed to be a part of this ministry and to be serving with the Urban Eagles.
