Jackie started leading worship in 1996 at the age of 17. Before that, he was writing and performing songs in church. He accepted his first worship leading job in 1997 and began to develop a deep hunger for the presence and glory of God.
His worship is characterized by a strong sense of awe and reverence for the Lord. Often, spontaneous melodies will develop into anthems of worship as the weighty presence of the Lord begins to manifest. Jackie's greatest desire is to see people encounter God in a new and authentic way. These encounters transform ordinary people into bold followers of Jesus, demonstrating the gospel with power.
Stacy's worship can go from sweet & delicate to thunderous declarations of praise. She will often lift up praises to God that shift the atmosphere and break chains of bondage. She's an ignitor and faith fills the room when she's ministering. But one of her favorite places to be is ministering freedom and deliverance to God's people at the altar.
Jackie and Stacy Baker live outside of Dothan AL with their two children. Jackie serves as the worship leader of New Life Church.
