"Educating Equipping Engaging"

Drs. Torrance and Lisa Jacko                                                       

Welcome to our page!


We have been serving the Lord together since we first met in a Home Bible Study in Yokosuka, Japan. 


Our heart is to see believers grow in the grace of God and live the life of Faith that gives us Victory over the world.  


Our prayer for you is that something on this page will inspire you to greatness in God and that you will be equipped to serve out your God-given assignment!

A native of Houston, Texas, Dr. Torrance Jacko answered the call to preach at 16 years of age. Enlisting in the United States Navy at 18, he served in Yokosuka, Japan aboard the aircraft carrier USS Midway. 

It was there in 1986 when he met Lisa, who was also in the Navy serving in Japan. While on the Midway, Torrance preached the first 6-day revival aboard a sea-going vessel. As a result, Dr. Jacko was visited by the Chief of Chaplains from Washington, D.C. while the ship was deployed in the Indian Ocean.

Degreed by several Bible colleges, the Jacko's received Doctorate of Ministry and Master of Arts degrees from Friends International Christian University in 1999.


Dr. Jacko founded Ambassadors International Ministries (Embassy Church International), a strong family-oriented ministry.  Dr. Jacko's direct teaching approach leaves listeners with a clear understanding of the Word. 


Dr. Jacko serves on the Executive Board of the "FELLOWSHIP", an International Ministerial Organization.  Together, they have raised 3 children, Torrance Jr, Joshua and Tamara.
