Pastor Jacquelyn Cannon is a native of Mobile, Alabama. In September of 1971, during a revival service at the former Bishop College in Dallas, TX, the Lord beautifully saved and baptized her with the Holy Ghost. She has been a faithful member of the Full Gospel Holy Temple Ministry ever since.
Pastor Cannon was the only wife of the late Honorable Bishop Paul Cannon, Jr. for 41 beautiful years. They served together as Pastor and First Lady of the Full Gospel Holy Temple - Nash church for over 36 years. She is the mother of five adult children: Jermia, Jeremy, Paul III, Jennifer, and Jon (deceased). She is the proud grandmother of five grandchildren: Camryn, Jace, Cole, Jayson, and Necoma.
She loves the Word of God and her favorite scriptures, amongst others, is Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." She has made a firm commitment to follow the Word and carry out the plan that God has for her life. Her main objective is to see souls saved and lives transformed by the power of God.
Pastor Cannon is a woman of God with a vision. This is evident by the numerous projects and programs that she has successfully instituted for God's glory and honor. She has, down through the years, worked diligently and consistently with the Women's Auxiliary and Printing Department of Full Gospel Holy Temple - Nash. She is the founder of the Helping Hands Outreach Ministry and Food Pantry. God inspired and blessed her to compose and write three heart-stirring books: The Lord Is Beautiful for Situations, All From the Heart, and The Memoirs Of A Gospel Preacher: Born to Lead.
Her preaching ministry can be viewed each and every Sunday evening at 11:00PM (CST) on the Living Word Telecast on KSHV My45, as well as, every Sunday morning via YouTube Live! Her testimony and preaching has reached and blessed many across the Four-States region and abroad. She stands firmly on the Word of God and exemplifies a holy life that is an encouragement to all that she comes in contact with. She is the epitome of Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengetheneth me."
After the transition of Bishop Paul Cannon, Jr., the Lord elevated First Lady Jacquelyn Cannon to the Pastoral office. On January 16, 2015, she was formally ordained as Pastor of Full Gospel Holy Temple - Nash by our overseer, Apostle Herman Lobias Murray, Jr. And God has confirmed her transition with signs and wonders! Truly, it can be said that the same Spirit which rested upon Bishop Paul Cannon, Jr. also rests upon Pastor Jacquelyn Cannon.
