When the Rev. Tammy Jackson discusses the church’s role in her Glencoe childhood, ambiguity is absent. It’s the Baptist church in which she blossomed. It’s the Baptist church that prepared her for leadership. It’s the Baptist church that molded her Christian faith. 

And yet, today she’s the senior pastor at Anniston First United Methodist Church, a denominational cross-pollination as unlikely as it sounds.
