Meet Daniel Jackson

We’re so, so excited to welcome Daniel Jackson as our new Duke Divinity planter-in-training/intern this summer! Here’s a little about Daniel in his own words…


Hi Local Church fam!

My name is Daniel Jackson, and this summer I get the privilege of being the full-time intern at The Local Church! I am an upcoming third-year Master of Divinity student at Duke Divinity School alongside my wife, Sherei, who is also a third year in the program. I love music (playing or listening), playing board games (I am currently inventing one... ask me about it to cue a nerdy rant), watching the Office, and getting outside with my dog Avery. I am also thrilled for the arrival of our first child this July. We are in for an adventure this final year of school (please pray for us and share wisdom!). 

I have worked in ministry full-time since being married in 2011, and am excited to continue in a career of ministry with the United Methodist Church as I pursue ordination as Elder. Sherei and I are members of the Western North Carolina Conference of the UMC, and are currently in communication to plant a church there after graduating, which we have felt called to in the years of ministry leading up to Divinity School. Working with a new church plant is just one of the reasons why I am so excited about this summer!

I have heard awesome things about what God has been up to at The Local Church, and am eager to step in. Now that you know a little bit about me, I would love to get to know you! Please reach out anytime and we can grab coffee or lunch. 

Looking forward to it,
Daniel Jackson
