  • Jonathan peacock

    Associate Pastor of music

    My Ministry: I believe that biblically and theologically sound worship is centered on God and structured on the Gospel. It demands a daily sacrifice of all that the believer is and has, so that ultimately, honor and glory would be brought to God’s name alone. My prayer is that we would faithfully follow the instructions given in Colossians 3:16-17, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."


    My Interests: Within music itself, I love to create hymn and worship song arrangements for piano, handbells, and orchestra. Outside of music, I enjoy photography, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.


    My Education: I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music from Truett McConnell University and am completing my Master of Music from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.


    My Family: I am originally from Alma, GA. My parents are James and Denise Peacock.
