Meet our new settled pastor....

 

– The members of the Jackson Community Church are pleased to announce that after an 18 month pastoral search process they have called a settled pastor to serve the church and wider community effective Sunday, November 6th, 2016. 

Gail Pomeroy Doktor comes to the Jackson Community Church from Ipswich, MA.  Prior to her arrival in Jackson she served as a medical chaplain at Beverly Hospital in Beverly, MA and as interim executive director for the homeless ministry of The Outdoor Church in Cambridge, MA.  Gail is a recent graduate of the Harvard Divinity School where her studies included parish ministry, prison ministry, hospital and hospice chaplaincy, interfaith community-building, work with youth in recovery from addiction, and study of immigration issues at the US-Mexico border. Prior to her call to the ministry, Gail had a 25 year career as a print and web designer and business communications consultant for both corporate and nonprofit clients.

Doktor and her family also run a small nonprofit foundation called Bright Happy Power, Inc. which supports children and families living with cancer and other catastrophic challenges, in memory of her youngest daughter Jessica who died at the age of 9.  Their older daughter Sarah is studying nursing at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.  Gail is married to Chris Doktor, a partner in the architectural firm Olson Lewis Architects & Planners, Inc.

She has served on the patient-parent advisory boards for Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the institutional review board at Beverly Hospital, is an active volunteer with cultural and environmental organizations, as well having served as president and officer in the Ipswich Rotary Club.  She loves the outdoors and looks forward to exploring the White Mountains in all seasons while becoming an active member of the wider valley community as her family puts down roots in Jackson.

The Jackson Community Church is a welcoming community of faith, under the banner of the United Church of Christ, and located by the river in the heart of Jackson Village.  Weekly Sunday services are at 10:30 am.  For more information about the church or Pastor Doktor, please contact Lynn Lockard, Moderator, at lynnlockard@gmail.com.
