Pastor Katie Jo graduated from Eden Seminary with her Master of Divinity in 2010 and has been at St. John since. She not only likes to talk about God and be challenged in her ideas of who God is, but she especially loves helping others experience God in ordinary life and in new ways. If you know Pastor Katie Jo, chances are she has asked you “Where have you seen God recently?” When she is not at church she is usually with her husband either riding bikes, relaxing with a good book or playing Frisbee with their German Shepherd.
Tony Minear has been our Lead Pastor since 2010. More than likely, when you visit us for worship on a Sunday morning you will hear him preaching. He holds a PhD in Biblical Studies and is passionate about creating spiritual bridges between the academic world and the streets of our neighborhoods and cities. The core principle by which he governs his goals and makes his decisions is simple but profound, “Love Like Jesus.” When he isn’t working you can find him at the gym, reading a book, or catching bugs with his wife while riding their motorcycle.
