I am because you are.
You are because I am.

Rev. Jacqueline Cantey Brett

Greetings and
peaceful welcome!

I, like you, have been made for these times. So, enter and come in! I’ve designed this site as an invitation to you to explore the different aspects of my ministry. Through these pages, I hope you’ll get a sense of what a great privilege it is for me to awaken each day and love the world through the work to which my spirit and heart have been called.

I am because you are. You are because I am.
Rev. Jacqueline

Jacqueline is continuously expanding her ministry in the world in beautiful ways that draw people in. Her process of grounding, in ancestors, in lived experience, in imagining the other, generates a community of care. She names spirits, moves along the line at the edge of her learning zone, and is an old soul thunderstorm storyteller.

When I think of the elegant ministry of Rev. Jacqueline Brett, the first characteristics that come to mind are smart, critically compassionate, and a lover of community. She is not prone to take things at face value; she inquires, explores, weighs, and confirms all that she sees and hears. And, while her mind seeks understanding, she goes about that with compassion and care. I suspect the promise of beloved community is what pulls out these tendencies. Alas, the sum of these factors is a religious professional who models the promise of our faith. What a gift!!

I have witnessed Rev. Brett blossom into a fine minister who brings the gift of prophetic ministry with the care of a pastor. Rev. Brett preaches to the hearts and souls of the people where they are. She inspires all of us, congregants and colleagues, with her words and her deeds, to become the people who shall build the beloved community we dream about. Rev. Brett is the most requested guest preacher in the congregation where I serve. I cannot say enough about how much joy her ministry brings to me and others. As her mentor I learned as much from her and she may have learned from me. She is a blessing to our ministry and our faith.

Jacqueline Brett has rare gifts for ministry and, although none of us ever reaches the zenith of ministerial perfection, I predict she will come as close to it as any ever has. She is a natural. Her personality, her intellect, her wisdom, her skill and her depth of spirit all combine to enable her to carry out a ministry that will have profound effectiveness.

Jacqueline Brett is a minister of rare ability. She brings spiritual maturity, intellectual gifts, a warm and balanced presence and a deep sense of a more just world which we must usher into being.
