Jason Teal | Student/Young Adult Pastor of FBC Barnesville

 Email Jason at
God has directed the ministry that Jason has been involved in for the past ten years.  He holds a B.A. in Biology from Brewton-Parker College and is completing a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in Christian Education and Leadership.  He is very thankful for the Grace that God has extended in his educational journey.  Prior to coming to Barnesville, he served Eastside Baptist Church in Claxton, Georgia as the Worship/Student Pastor and FBC Sylvania as the Student/Family Pastor. The Lord has also blessed Jason with a wonderful wife, Honey Teal.  Together, they have three daughters, Willow, Mercy and Nola.
Jason’s heart is to disciple and mentor students, encouraging them and sharing with them the overwhelming joy that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ.  His passion is leading students to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.  Jason finds this importance in what Luke 2:52 says when he writes, “Jesus continued to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.”  Jesus is the only way by which man will find salvation and completeness.
