... and each time she tells a story I am taken back in time. I can feel the hot sands of the Holy Land on my feet...

Journey to Israel
Jackie Towns is a biblical storyteller and teacher, an inspirational and keynote speaker, a facilitator for retreats and workshops, and a John Maxwell coach.
Her calling and greatest passion is to teach the Word of God through biblical storytelling and to train others to use their gifts and talents to answer the call the LORD has placed on their lives.
God has called us to carry on His work as conduits of the Holy Spirit. I love teaching the Gospel through biblical storytelling because the stories of the Scripture move the heart like no other. God designed each and every one of us to connect with story. Jesus taught profound concepts through story and I want to take those stories and teach His precious message to the oral and preferred cultures around the world. God has invited us into His grace-filled story to join Him in His work for His glory.
I truly believe that when men and women, brothers and sisters work together in Christ and through Christ the impact for Christ will be unstoppable! “From Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To God be the glory forever. Amen” (Rom 11:36).
