Jerry and Jana Lackey


In 1988, Jerry and Jana Lackey packed their bags and moved from the United States to Botswana, Africa. Jerry and Jana’s shared passion for Africa and unmistakable call from God led them to pioneer a work that has grown over the past 25 years into the largest non-government organization in the nation of Botswana.

With a multi-cultural staff team of over 120, and reaching over 10,000 people each month in northwest Botswana, the Lackeys have made—and continue to make—a significant contribution to the development and transformation of Southern Africa.

Jerry and Jana have 4 children, ages 8 through 22, and continue to live and serve in Botswana. They are both licensed and ordained through Lakewood Church, their home church in Houston, Texas.
