Tom and Lois Jackson's Mission

Helping the church discover ways to demonstrate the power of the Gospel and the presence of Christ through the proclamation of the Good News of Christ and through community development projects

Our Ministry

We live in Harare, the capital city of Harare, and travel 4 hours to a remote rural area (Hurungwe). We work with two pastors and 12 congregations in evangelizing, baptizing and discipling. We also work with church and community leaders in developmental efforts, including building primary school, providing clean water and nutritional gardens. Other development efforts include “Foundations for Farming” and a chicken project. We are working with Parkview to help facilitate on ongoing partnership with the Evangelical Church of Zimbabwe in these endeavors.


We work with TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) in Zimbabwe as partners with the Evangelical Church of Zimbabwe. Our current work is in rural communities in the Hurungwe District of NorthWestern Zimbabwe.

On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
Grace and Peace,
Ray S. Kollbocker
Lead Pastor
