Jackie Kendall has ministered through teaching and counseling for more than 30 years. Jackie's teaching ministry in and through the local church spans the spectrum from youth, college, singles, and married adults.
As President of Power to Grow Ministries, Jackie is a sought after conference speaker for people of all ages and stages of life. Her teaching presentation is hard-hitting, humorous, and healing. Her teaching allows tough topics to become easier to swallow as she spices them with her savory humor and Biblical style.
