Meet our Senior Pastor

Servant Pastor Sapphire L. Jackson

Servant Pastor Sapphire L. Jackson was born on September 15, 1986, in East Meadow, NY. She is a woman who wears many "hats". She is a Pastor, entrepreneur, model, actress, playwright, screenwriter, and songwriter. She is the mother of two beautiful children, Jada and Jania. She is also a Godmother and a spiritual mother to many.

Even with her busy schedule of parenting, pastoring, and entertaining she still finds time to fulfill the duties of being an entrepreneur. She is the President of Glorious Essentials LLC, an essential brand of vegan skin care products with more products to come that seek to help you get your glo back.

Sapphire is a philanthropist at heart and that is why she founded The Blue Ring Foundation, a non-profit organization in 2010 that sought to help battered women, teenage mothers, and single mothers. From a young age, she always wanted to put a smile on others' faces whether that meant being on stage in front of a crowd or just having a one-on-one conversation.

Since the age of 4, she developed a close relationship with God and said “ YES” to the call on her life as she accepted the Lord as her Savior. By the age of 9, she was traveling with her mother, the late Prophetess Doris Couch, to different states preaching the Word of God. During a ministry trip to London in 2016 she said “YES AGAIN” to God and to HIS will for her life.

By God’s Grace on June 11, 2017, she was installed as the Lead Pastor of Restoration House of Power Inc. in St. Albans NY. It is her hope to launch another non-profit organization within the ministry that will bring restoration and support to the community. For this very reason, she prefers the title of Servant Pastor as she believes in serving others as Jesus did.

Through the years she has been featured in several productions including red-carpet affairs, fashion shows, live theatre plays, and web talk shows, and is featured in the movie "The Reflections of Sistahs" which she had the pleasure of writing and directing. She also wrote and directed her inspirational stage play "Sistah Sistah". She had the pleasure of being involved in Pearls, A P.C.O.S. Documentary where she was able to bond with other women while sharing her story of dealing with and overcoming polycystic ovarian syndrome.

She is also the creator of Sistahs Inspiring Sistahs, a Facebook group that looks to inspire and uplift women all over the world. She has hosted conference calls, prayer calls, chat & chews, and seminars because of her passion to inspire women. While uplifting women she also loves to make them look good by styling them in jewelry from her online boutique

She loves the Lord and through her life story, she prays lives will be changed for the better. One of her favorite scriptures is Philippians 4:13 " I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
