Jonathan WhitleyJonathan Whitley, Senior Pastor

Jonathan began to follow Jesus early in life through the gospel witness of his mother and a local church. He sensed a call to vocational ministry while serving on a mission trip in high school. Since then he has served local churches in various roles from janitor to senior pastor for over 25 years. While in college, he met his bride, Tara, and since their union in 2001 they have had the privilege of raising up a godly heritage both in the church and in their own family, including their four children - Ross (2010), Clay (2012-2015), Graham (2014), and Hope (2017). Jonathan believes God has called him to help people identify and live out his or her true calling to see and follow Jesus into every area of life. "Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain." - Psalm 127:1

GaryGGary Goodrich, Associate Pastor 

Gary was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and called it home until he left in 2004 to attend college at Arkansas State University. In 2006 Gary's life changed when he met Jesus and experienced the life-giving message of grace. This message was one Gary felt called to share, and In 2011, Gary and his wife Whitney moved to St. Louis, Missouri, to attend Covenant Theological Seminary. Gary is passionate about grace, community, and helping believers become fully formed followers in the everyday stuff of life. In his downtime, Gary enjoys good food, a good working out, and Cardinals baseball. Gary has been married to Whitney since 2008, and they share two children Zoey (age 4) and Oliver (8 months).
