Pastor Jonathan and his family joined the KLBC family in August of 2016 as Senior Pastor after serving the Lord in Student and Associate Pastor Ministry for 13 years. Jonathan received his B.S. in Religious Studies, M.A.R in Pre-Pastoral Studies, and M.Div. in Pastoral Ministries from Liberty University, and has begun his Doctoral Studies with New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Jonathan's driving passion in ministry is helping others connect into a growing and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. Along with his wife Shannon, they are blessed with two fun loving kids, Caleb and Brooke. As a family they enjoy serving the Lord here at KLBC, having fun on the lake, watching Gator football (mostly Jonathan!), hunting, going to the movies, and spending time together.
Pastor Ben and his wife Christa joined our ministry team in August of 2020, as Associate Pastor of Worship and Students. Ben received his Bachelor of Music in Worship Leadership from the Baptist College of Florida, in May of 2020. Ben is a gifted musician and leader of worship. He can play the drums, guitar, and piano. While he loves the opportunity to lead the people of God in worship, he also has a passion for student ministry, and seeing students fall deeply in love with Jesus. Ben enjoys working out, working on cars, building things, and spending time on the lake with his wife Christa! We are excited to have Pastor Ben join our ministerial staff!
Fun Fact: Ben and Christa met via a blind date at Dunkin' Donuts. Ben says it was love at first sight for Christa! He credits the long hair, and "Thor" like appearance.
