Along with his wife Anet, Jerry started Faith Comes By Hearing (then known as Hosanna) in 1972 as a cassette tape lending library. Thanks to his unwavering commitment to the Word of God, the ministry is now a recognized leader in Audio Bible production and engagement.
Jerry has a Bachelor of Science in Agronomy from California State Polytechnic, and managed an avocado packing house in Santa Paula, California, before entering full-time ministry in 1967. He and Anet served as itinerant missionaries in the western U.S. before settling in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Jerry has long been a champion for the unique needs of non-literate communities and has helped to pioneer many strategies for making Scripture available in a language and format people can best use.
Clay has the ability to combine his engineering background with “big picture” visionary thinking in order to launch, grow, and maintain far-reaching strategies for Audio Bible production and distribution.
Since joining Faith Comes By Hearing in 1983, Clay has overseen various departments, including Manufacturing, Finance, and Global Partnerships. While heading up the Manufacturing department, Clay’s innovative ideas in pneumatic inking systems and plate processing resulted in far greater efficiency in our cassette duplication and printing methods. While in Global Partnerships, Clay helped refine the Audio Bible recording process and, most recently, integrate global Bible technologies into existing Bible listening programs.
Clay has also launched a number of small businesses and non-profits designed to bless those in need. He also serves as an executive committee or board member of several Christian organizations, and is deeply involved with Scripture-based social transformation initiatives in Peru, India, Kenya, Mexico, and Thailand.
Morgan Jackson is passionate about people hearing the Bible, working to ensure every language that needs it receives Audio Scripture by 2033. He has served Faith Comes By Hearing for more than 40 years and is the ministry’s Senior Vice President.
The son of Faith Comes By Hearing founders Jerry and Anet Jackson, Morgan has traveled to more than 80 countries to build lifelong relationships with Kingdom-minded ministry leaders and supporters.
As a storyteller, Morgan transports listeners to villages, refugee camps, churches, and schools, demonstrating the personal impact of hearing God speak the language of the heart. He recently authored Enter the Story, a collection of these accounts of transformation from around the world.
Morgan and his wife Mary enjoy time with their three married children and eight grandchildren. They also love to camp, hike, and fish. If Morgan has a fishing pole in his hand, teaching a grandchild how to fish, it is a great day!
Jonathan has served with the ministry since 2008. His experience as a small business owner and in non-profit micro–lending, along with a degree in Marketing & Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University, brings a unique blend of entrepreneurship and strategic planning to our work with 45 recording teams and over 700 partners.
Tasked with exploring the concept of Oral Bible Translation, he assembled a stakeholders group that has since taken the idea from a thesis paper and developed it into the reality now known as Render. He has also launched the Virtual Recording platform, and many other strategies and techniques for Audio Bible recordings to be produced more efficiently than ever before.
Jonathan’s commitment to advancing the Gospel is shown through his passion in empowering and equipping the people and partnerships that will make God’s Word known to the world.
