About Our Pastor

John Thompson, Senior Pastor

Follower of Jesus, husband to Melissa, dad to Lindsey, Erin, Caleb and Rebekah.  Those are the three “biggies” in my life.  I am learning to judge success by how well I am doing in these areas.  Next in line so to speak is Shepherd to the flock.  It is an awesome and humbling privilege to be called to lead God’s people.  After 20 plus years of pastoral ministry, I am still learning to work and lead by purpose.
