Pastor Jonathan Combs

My name is Pastor Jonathan Combs I have been married to Debra for 31 years. We have 6 adult children; a blessed blended family. God called me to pastoral ministry in 2006. My journey started at Herrick Chapel during the ordination service at Adrian College. I attended Ecumenical Seminary while working at Ford Motor Company. I also attended Methodist Theological Seminary of Ohio and I am now pursuing a master’s degree at Garrett Evangelical Seminary School in Chicago. I believe that social justice, feeding the hungry, friending the poor, visiting the sick and providing hope are essential principles derived from the gospels. I believe all people are welcomed into the presence of God. Ephesians 4:1-6 reminds us that we are one with Christ.


My favorite subject is Wesleyan theology. Wesley’s thoughts on social justice are just important now as they were in Wesley’s time. I enjoy Bible studies, baptism, communion, time with family, golf, vacationing, and time with children, youth, and young adults.
