Meet Garrett Cone - Prospective Student Pastor
We are excited to introduce Garrett Cone to you, the man we believe God has led our Student Pastor Search Team to call as the new Student Pastor. Garrett and his wife, Amy, have a two year old son, Beckett, and are expecting another child in September.
Garrett has served in student ministries spanning over a period of ten years in Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas and most recently in Georgia. He lived in Elizabethtown during high school and graduated from John Hardin High School. His college education began at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and transferred to Asbury University in Wilmore, KY where he graduated.
Garrett states his desire is to lead an energetic and engaging Student Ministry that will reach their community for Christ and grow disciple-making disciples. Those who have served with him in Student Ministry describe him as being a very hard worker with a heart for evangelism. Garrett is known to pour into the lives of students. He is also very relationship oriented to students, parents and volunteers.
The Student Pastor Search Team has been in the process of seeking God’s will for this position throughout this past school year. The seven members of this team have spent much time in prayer and in open discussions throughout the process. The team sees Garrett’s tremendous passion for Student Ministry. It is evident that being a Student Pastor is the call that God has placed on his life.
Having been a resident of this area, Garrett is very familiar with our town and county and expresses his excitement about having the opportunity to come back to this area. He is very excited about the opportunity to minister to our students and to lead out in reaching many more students and families for Christ.
