Jackie Ford Robertson
My name is Jackie and here I am with my daughters, Dedra (16) and Danielle (19). I am a part time commuter student in the MDiv program. I am on the ministerial staff at Wayman African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Minneapolis. I work with the young people and the media ministry. I am very excited about this class.
October 5, 2013 I was ordained an Itinerant Deacon in the AME. My Aunt (not pictured) and my best friends, Makeba and Evelyn, along with my niece Jaleesa traveled from Minneapolis to Chicago to attend the ceremony. I am originally from Chicago and all of my other blood relatives are there. In the twelve years I have lived in the Twin Cities I have created a wonderful family network. I couldn't feel more loved, blessed and supported.
My niece Kelley, Me, Jaleesa, Makeba and Evelyn. These are the greatest young women in the world.
