Senior Pastor

Jonathan Pinson

Pastor Jon has been the Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church since 2011. He has been in the ministry full time since first stepping out by faith and serving God as Youth Pastor at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Elkview, WV.

He has invested his entire adult life in people and families. Prior to surrendering to the ministry, Pastor Jon served as a police officer in Jackson County, WV for seven years. While serving there, Pastor Pinson was able to see first-hand the destruction and damage Satan causes; especially in the younger generation.
