Jonas Mackey is the student and music pastor at Medina First Baptist Church, and has been serving in that role since July of 2017. Jonas and his wife Charissa have been married since 2007, and have three kids, Judah, Evelyn, and Rozalyn. In Jonas’s free time, he and his wife like to participate in obstacle course racing, work on projects, and hang out with their kids.
Growing up, Jonas’s father and grandfather were both pastors, so from a young age he really understood what life looked like to serve the Lord in vocational ministry and began pursuing that for himself.
“I think the Lord used my relationship with them to start me down a path of full-time ministry and responding to that call.”
Jonas’s desire for student ministry, worship ministry, and the church as a whole is that their congregation would be known for making great the name of Jesus. His dream for Medina First Baptist is to be a church that loves the Lord first and foremost and is willing to lay aside anything else that might get in the way of that.
“I want people to walk away knowing that something has made a difference in all of our lives, and I hope that it is obvious that ‘thing’ is Jesus.”
