Hey everyone! My name is Jonathan Becker and I have the privilege of serving as your Associate Minister of Hospitality. I absolutely love people and desire to make you feel welcomed so your experience here, whether an event, Life Group, or worship service is a life-changing one.
Some of you may remember me when I served as the Student Ministry Intern a few years back. I love my South Spring family and am thrilled to come back as a member of the staff!
From 2019-2021, I served as the Dean of Students and Instructor of Religion & Philosophy at Jacksonville College. I was the Collegiate Pastor at Beall Chapel Baptist Church in Jacksonville, TX at the same time, connecting the college students to a church home.
I’m extremely excited to serve all of you and show the love of Jesus in every capacity.
Fun facts about me:
1. I coached Collegiate Tennis for 3 years.
2. I’m from NJ and am a die-hard NY Mets fan (please don’t hold this against me. I got to Texas as quickly as I could…)
3. I’m currently working on my PhD in Old Testament at Columbia International University. I love talking about Old Testament topics, particularly the history, society, and language of the time. The history of our faith is amazing!
4. My favorite books (other than the Bible of course) is Little Pilgrim’s Progress and Walking with God by John Eldredge.
5. I really miss the late 90’s and early 2000’s so I regularly re-watch all the Nickelodeon shows from that time period to relive my childhood.
