Bishop Carswell and Pastor Laura Jackson are the Senior and Co-Pastors of the New Life Evangelistic Church, located in Paterson, New Jersey. Bishop is the Presiding Prelate of New Life Evangelistic Fellowship Churches and they are servants committed to the upholding nurturing and sharing of the Gospel Message througout the world.
Bishop Jackson found a good thing, according to Proverbs 18:22, in Pastor Laura, when they united in holy matrimony on September 24, 1983. To this union a very beautiful daughter was born on December 27, 1991, Precious Malinda Shalena Jackson, “daddy’s little girl”.
Bishop and Pastor Jackson made total surrender of their lives at an early age under the leadership of Prophet Brian J. Mosley Bread of Life Ministries of Atlanta, Georgia and Deliverance Holy Tabernacle Paterson, New Jersey and under the leadership of Apostle Walter L. Scott and First Lady Patricia Scott, their spiritual parents in the gospel. Thank God for the leading and guiding of these leaders. The course was being set for the road they travel today.
Bishop and Pastor Jackson served various ministries as Pastor and First Lady since 1990 at House of Deliverance and Victory Temple United Holiness. Bishop served as District Elder of the Faith United District Assembly of the United Holiness Church of America, Inc., and the Vice President of the Board of Presbyterian, Goldsboro, North Carolina.
Bishop and Pastor Jackson established New Life Evangelistic Church Incorporated, in March 1995, with only one objective in mind, to reach souls for Christ. As a result of their vision there is a New Life Bible Institute, Door Evangelism, Helping Hand Ministry, and various community outreach projects. Bishop also is mightily used of the Lord in crusades and services in the metropolitan tri-state area, and a few other places. God has ordained his steps to go to North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Oregon, Washington, Missouri, etc...
Bishop and Pastor Jackson are qualified to establish and equip the Body of Jesus for service of the Lord. They attended Deliverance Bible Institute, Paterson, New Jersey, under the leadership of the late Dean Mary Armstrong where they received their biblical training. Bishop is the recipient of numerous awards and certificates of appreciation. A few: The City of Paterson’s Mayor’s Award, Pastor of Integrity Award, Jersey City, New Jersey; Community Outreach Service Award by Hoffman LaRoche Company of North Jersey, etc...
Bishop and Pastor Jackson’s continued faithfulness in ministry has also resulted in moving out of their former church home located on Belmont Ave. in Paterson to a much larger, and improved, beautiful new church home located at 340 Totowa Ave in Paterson, NJ.
For this, all the praise belongs to GOD!
