Dwayne Pickett


Dr. Dwayne Pickett is senior pastor of the historic New Jerusalem Church in Jackson, Mississippi, and ministers worldwide as a missionary-evangelist. During his twenty-year pastoral tenure, New Jerusalem has grown from under two hundred members to more than 7000 that meet on multiple campuses.

New Jerusalem has commissioned more men through the Christian Men’s Network in the past ten years than any church in North America. Dr. Pickett has served as a denominational and civic leader and is a veteran of Desert Storm/Desert Shield. Having earned two master’s degrees and a Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Education, he founded New Jerusalem Christian School, which serves 6-week-olds to 6th graders on two campuses.
