Pastor Jonathan Eason was raised in Carrollton, Georgia. He accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of eight after hearing a message during a Vacation Bible School service, and was baptized soon after. As a result of seeking the Lord’s will upon counsel from his youth pastor, Pastor Eason surrendered his life to preach God’s Word at the age of 16. While in Bible College Pastor met Lisa, and they were married in 2006 upon their graduation from college. Pastor Eason served for seven years as a Christian school teacher, Christian school administrator, and assistant pastor at a Baptist church in North Carolina. Prior to coming to Grace, pastor served for two years as a senior pastor in Pennsylvania.
In May 2015, he became the pastor of Grace Baptist Church. Grace Baptist is a church plant of dedicated people that was chartered on June 7, 2015. Pastor has a burden to see a strong gospel-centered Baptist Church in northeast Pensacola. Pastor’s verse by verse teaching and preaching equips our church to have a heart for God, to grow in grace, and to reach the world for Jesus Christ. Today, many people and families call Grace Baptist Church “home.” Pastor and Lisa have two children.
