Pastor Jacqueline Hailstock
After hearing God calling her to a greater position in ministry in August 2004, she finished divinity school with a mission to trust and follow God's plan for her. In November 2007, Jacqueline and her husband, Craig joined with Pastor Mark R. Dorsey and planted the Shekinah Christian Center in Laurel Maryland where she was mentored. Leaving Shekinah Christian Center in March 2009, Craig and Jacqueline were further led by God to start a bible study in their home which launched the new ministry.
In July 2009, Jacqueline was ordained as a Pastor by Bishop D. Myles Golphin, Presiding Prelate of the LIF Global Network in Raleigh, North Carolina and officially opened the Tabernacle of Faith Worship Center in Laurel, Maryland. Furthermore, in December 2011, she was elected as the Overseer of Christian Education within the covenant.
Now having over 25 years of government service, working in various clinical settings in the Metropolitan area, Jacqueline is currently employed as a Clinical Social Worker with the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC. Jacqueline is married to Elder Craig Hailstock Sr. and they have two lovely children, Taylor Simóne and Craig Joshua Hailstock Jr.
Her favorite scripture is Philippians 1:6, “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Jacqueline Elaine Hailstock is a native of Greenville, North Carolina and the eldest daughter of William Henry and Peggy Cox. After graduating from Julius H. Rose High School she ventured from her hometown to obtain a B.A. degree in Social Welfare from North Carolina Central University, Durham North Carolina. In 1981, Jacqueline went even further to University of Maryland Graduate School of Social Work and received a Masters in Clinical Social Work and a Post Masters in Social Administration. Settling in the state of Maryland, she received a Masters in Divinity from Howard University School of Divinity in May 2010.
Jacqueline was heavily involved in ministry at a very young age. Her mother, Peggy Cox sparked her interest in music ministry as a child and her family performed in many venues of ministry. During her time in music ministry, she spent years training choirs in churches, universities, workshops and served as Musician and Minister of Music of various denominational churches throughout the Washington metropolitan area. In 1998, she started an outreach ministry called, “Rejoice Ministries" that for many years ministered in song in various settings and was afforded many opportunities to minister with major recording artists.
