My name is Zack Jackson. I am a pastor in the United Church of Christ currently serving in Reading, PA. I believe in the power of the scientific method and am constantly in awe of the reality that we find ourselves in. I am also a follower of Jesus and a big fan of the Bible that documents humanity’s beautifully flawed history with God. That might seem like an impossible contradiction to some folks, but if electrons can be both particles and waves, then I can be a scientific mystic. I love exploring the mystical and physical unknowns of existence, and I hope that you will come along for the ride.
In addition to pastoring my wonderful church, I am also a blogger, podcaster, and public speaker. I was in the 2017-2019 Sinai and Synapses Fellowship, direct the Palmer Seminary Science and Religion Symposium, and coordinate the United Church of Christ Science and Technology Network. You can check out all the work that I do by exploring the links on this page. If you would like me to come speak to your group, or if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been producing podcasts since 2018, and offer full consultation services in addition to planning, recording, editing, and distribution. If you are local, I have a fully mobile recording setup and can come to you. See below for some samples of my work.

Music and Video Production
I have been the sound tech at multiple churches since 2001 and have years of experience in both live music and studio recording. Since the COVID lockdown in 2020, I have become proficient in video production and editing as well, often combining these skills to create virtual choirs and bands. In addition to editing locally recorded video, I have a Sony a6400 camera and Rode VideoMic Pro, so I can record 4k video on location if need be. See below for some samples of my work.
