A Bowling Green minister has been preaching nearly half a century.

Rev. Earl J. Jackson has preached at New Bethel Baptist Church most of his career.

Today, marked the 44th year Rev. Jackson has been in ministry.

It was a packed house this Sunday as friends, and family from all over the country came to honor Rev. Jackson's service.

"I feel elated. I'm overjoyed. I'm overjoyed because these folks are taking time out of their schedule to come congratulate my wife and I, and we are very appreciative," he said during his church service.

Jackson is currently working to remodel New Bethel Baptist Church after the ceiling was caved in by an air conditioning unit in the attic.

It's a project he says he's put his heart and soul into.
