About Stephen & Julie Cannon

      I just wanted to take a moment, and give you a little bit of information about our family as we attempt to take up the incredible mantle of Ron Jackson, since I know many of you may not know us at all. Julie and I have been married for 21 years and have 3 children – Natalie (16), Tyler (12), and Ruthie (7). I was called to full time ministry in 2004, and served with Ron Jackson at East Gaffney Baptist Church working in the student and children’s ministries. I graduated from Dorman High School, Erskine College, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and North Greenville University. I have had the joy of serving with Parson’s Pantry since Ron and Karen started the ministry; most recently serving as the Vice-Chairman of the Board. I have also had the great privilege to serve 3 wonderful churches as pastor, and currently serve in this role at Millbrook Baptist Church in Aiken, South Carolina.

 

      My wife Julie has had the unique experience of being both a pastor’s kid and now a pastor’s wife. Her love for the servants of God runs very deep. She has written a 6-week Bible Study for Ministry Families called “The Shared Spouse”, the proceeds of which all go towards the ministry of Parson’s Pantry. She is also a certified coach through Blackaby Ministries and is finishing her second book called “More Than Just a Number” for women of all ages. Julie currently serves as a guidance counselor in addition to keeping our family running and serving in multiple roles at our church.

       We would love to get to know you better and to stay connected with you on Facebook. If I can help or serve you in any way my email address is – stephenhcannon4@gmail.com

Dr. Ron Jackson founded The Parson’s Pantry Ministry in 2005. The heart for this ministry emerged from his faithful service to The Lord as a pastor for over 30 years. Ron named October as Parson’s Pantry Month, and walked hundreds of miles in order to raise funds and awareness for this ministry. Ron loved the Lord Jesus, and being a preacher of the Gospel. He was a devoted husband, father, and servant of Christ.
 

Ron was a graduate of Great Falls High School, The Baptist College of Charleston, The Southern Baptist Center for Biblical Studies, and Covington Theological Seminary. Ron was the recipient of the Silver Crescent, South Carolina’s highest award for voluntary service, and he received the Lifetime Ministry Award for 54 years of service in Faithful and Pastoral Ministry. Ron retired as Pastor of East Gaffney Baptist Church, Gaffney, SC, where he was later named as Pastor Emeritus, an honor that was most special to him.  Ron was a guest speaker for several government and community organizations, and was invited to open in prayer for the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. Upon retirement, Ron continued to served as interim and supply pastor for several churches as well as serving as professor for Covington Theological Seminary.
