OUR MINISTRY TEAM

JONATHAN DOWNS

Education & Discipleship Pastor

I was born and raised in Memphis and Millington, TN area. I recognized my need for a Savior while working on my Cub Scout merit badge serving at my grandparents’ church’s banquet. While listening to a guest speaker I understood my need for Jesus it was the next day after school my mother brought me back to Mountain Terrace Baptist Church in Frasier to Bro. Oakley where he led me to place his faith and trust in Jesus. God called me to serve in local church ministry at the age of 19, but it was not until I was 20 years old that I made that public here at FBC Millington. Since then I have served in Florida, Missouri and Louisiana. While serving at FBC Millington the first time I met my wife Amy and we have now been married 12 years and we have three wonderful daughters: Sarah, Katie and Joanna. I enjoy sports from the St. Louis Cardinals, all SEC football, Grizzly basketball, but my favorite thing is family time and investing in people.
