Dr. Jessup has worked as a professor, pastor, coach, and Dean of Students. He is a popular speaker for civic clubs, churches, and marriage and family retreats.
Jessup has been a significant leader in Bay Area pastors groups, the Billy Graham Crusade, and ethnic reconciliation groups. He has published numerous articles on leadership and church issues, has served on many non-profit boards, and was named "Man of Valor" by the Racial Reconciliation Committee of Santa Clara Valley African-Americans in 1999.
Since his move to Rocklin, Dr. Jessup serves on six non-profit boards including the elder board at Adventure Christian Church where he co-chaired a Capital Campaign. In addition, he serves as Board Chair of Agape International Missions and on the Church Development Fund Board. He served last year as the Regional Vice Chair of the Luis Palau Festival.
