LEADERSHIP:

REV. DR. JONATHAN LOVELADY, SENIOR PASTOR

The Lovelady family, Jon and Lisa, and their children: Stephanie, Matthew, and Luke arrived at St. Johns in 2011 following a thirteen-year pastorate in Virginia. They miss the mountains, the snow and the rhododendron, but enjoy the beaches, the beautiful azaleas, and the mild weather of north Florida. Jon began as an engineering student, but due to a conversion experience began to pursue a call to ordained ministry. He is a graduate of Lee College (now Lee University) and Columbia Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry).  His varied ministry experiences range from preaching in a housing project while in college, to building homes in Reynosa, Mexico, and renovating homes in the mountains of West Virginia. Lisa currently works as the administrator of the Synod of the South Atlantic. Stephanie is a customer service representative for a local industry and Luke is a student at University of North Florida. Their middle child, Matthew, lives in Charlottesville, Virginia and is a manager for the Pippin Hill Farm Winery. Jon enjoys motorcycles and most all things mechanical.  He is an avid runner and biker, enjoying two Jacksonville races this year, the Ortega River Run and the Gate River Run.
