He says he can't remember an Easter Sunday where he wasn't at church.

"Because this is so different we have to be very intentional," Jackson said. "We are trying to really put on a production for the people of God and during this season."

While church members won't be able to go to church to hear his message, they will still be able to hear it online.

He plans to make sure the reach is far enough so no one misses his message of hope.

Jackson's congregation also helped donate 200,000 masks to local hospitals.
