Mary Ella Jackson Pearson was born in Talladega, AL on March 17, 1980, to the parents of Joseph and
Sylvia Lucas Jackson. She is the youngest and the only girl of three children. Her brothers are Telly and Richard
During her childhood, she was faced with many obstacles, but never once did she allow those obstacles stand in
her way of becoming who she is today. She excelled in academics in school in hopes of one day becoming
Valedictorian of her senior class at Talladega County Central High School, Talladega, AL. She accomplished this
goal and was able to attend college on a Presidential Scholarship at Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, AL. Even in
excelling in academics in high school, her life was not complete, because she was lacking the salvation of Jesus
Before leaving for college, she had the opportunity to attend church with her mother one Sunday. She was really
encouraged by the word of God that she heard and decided to start going to church every Sunday. Immediately,
God began to speak to her through the word of God about receiving salvation and being set free from sin. She
decided that salvation is what she wanted and needed to obtain eternal peace, love, joy and a new life, which
she was now feeling since she had been attending church with her mom. One day a youth prayer line was called
by her former pastor, Apostle Dr. Margaret McDill and she decided to go and get prayer in hopes of receiving
salvation and being filled with the Holy-Ghost. Yes, indeed, in the year of 1998 at the age of 18, before starting
college, she received the gift of salvation of Jesus Christ, set free from her sins and was filled with the Holy-
Ghost and Fire! Also, on that day she officially became a member of the Miracle Prayer House Cathedral.
Since this great experience, she has been on fire for God wanting to help other people come to Jesus Christ,
especially the youth. Humbly, she has allowed God to use her in ministering the word of God in different arenas.
In the past, she has held bible studies while attending Tuskegee University and while interning as a research student
at the Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA. She finished college in May 2002 earning the Bachelor of
