Archbishop Dr. Jackson

Anglican Church of Kenya

Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit experienced great poverty as a young boy after his father died and left their family destitute. Today, through God’s grace and the care of God’s people, Archbishop Jackson serves as the Primate of the Anglican Church in Kenya. He has studied in Kenya and the U.K., and in 2012 he was also awarded an honorary doctorate in professional studies by California-based Global University for lifelong studies. His interest revolves around peace building, ministry to the children and youth; sustenance of the mission agenda through resource mobilization and leadership empowerment. He is married to Esther Sapit and blessed with 7 children. As Archbishop, he fights not for land or wealth – but for the young people of his country, for justice and compassion, and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
