Dr. Jack McCullough, President and CEO, SkyQuest Outdoor Ministries
Jack’s love of hunting and the outdoors comes honestly. “I can remember walking along with my dad hunting raccoons and pheasants long before I could carry a firearm of any kind. Opening day of pheasant season was always ‘ours’, my dad’s and mine. We only missed it once due to inclement weather. That is why I still love hunting so much.”
Hunting remains a passionate past time. Wild turkey hunting, pheasant hunting, and deer hunting are priorities. Hunting wild turkeys is a highlight of the year. “I got this interest through my son, Seth. He is almost fanatic about turkey hunting, to the point of establishing his own call making company, Bully’s Wild Game Calls.”
Three of the “Wild Turkey Slam” subspecies have been harvested. These subspecies were the Rio Grande, the Merriam’s, and the Eastern. “Now I am looking for a chance to take an Osceola in Florida. That will complete the slam.”
The real passion of Jack’s life is Jesus Christ. “I accepted the forgiveness of sin that God offers in Christ at the age of 6. I was later baptized as a believer in our family farm pond. My goal in life is to make God famous. That is how I define glorifying God.”
He was born and raised on a farm in Southern Iowa. His wife Mary and he have been married for 45 years. Mary is an active part of his ministry and life. She serves as the Office Manager of Ravenna Baptist Church in Ravenna, MI. Four children and eleven grandchildren continue to enrich their lives.
Jack currently serves as the President and CEO of the SkyQuest Outdoor Ministries. He has been the lead pastor of local churches much of his adult life. He has served churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, and Iowa.
His educational achievements include a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science and Industry from Kansas State University, a Master of Divinity from Biblical Theological Seminary, and he completed a Doctor of Ministry at Liberty Theological Seminary graduating on May 7, 2007. His thesis addresses outdoor ministry. Its title is Evangelism on Target: A proposal to use hunting and fishing as means to evangelism and discipleship. McCullough served as a chaplain in the US Army National Guard and the US Army Reserves for over 13 1/2 years.
Jack enjoys helping churches and organizations plan game dinners and other outdoor ministries where people may be introduced to Jesus Christ. God has blessed and given success as he has shared about dogs, pheasant hunting, and especially wild turkey hunting at game dinners and outreach events in the past few years. His aim is to clearly share the gospel of Jesus Christ and lead people to a decision for Christ. He is available to speak at your group’s event, at churches, and in other venues.
Jack and Mary have moved from Sioux Falls in the spring of 2013 and now reside in west Michigan. That mailing address is 10931 Laketon Ave., Ravenna, MI 49451. This is the office address for SkyQuest Outdoor Ministries.
