In Memoriam

Mance C. Jackson Jr. (1930-2007)

Mance C. Jackson Jr., a long-time faculty member of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, died last month from cancer at a hospice care facility in Atlanta. He was 76 years old.

Dubbed the “Teacher of the Preachers,” Rev. Jackson joined the faculty at ITC in 1968 and taught continuing education courses to students who could not enroll in seminary classes full time. He also traveled throughout the South bringing his expertise on church administration to scores of black preachers at small churches in rural areas. He also traveled to Africa and the Caribbean to train preachers.

Rev. Jackson earned his doctorate of divinity at the New York Theological Seminary.
