John Lawler, Assistant Pastor

Originally hailing from the great state of Georgia, John came to Jacksonville with his family in 2016 after finishing his seminary education. After graduating from Georgia College & State University, John served for three years on the youth ministry staff of First Presbyterian Church in Augusta, GA. It was there that he met his beautiful bride, Cassie. Sensing a call to ministry, John and Cassie moved to St. Louis, MO where he completed his MDiv at Covenant Theological Seminary.

John and Cassie married in 2012. They have two daughters and a son who keep them very busy at home. The Lawlers love to open up their home and welcome folks to their dinner table, but be prepared to share your story! In his free time, John enjoys building furniture, watching Netflix, reading good books, and spending time with his family.
