Rev. Jonathan Poarch

Associate Pastor



(703) 765-6555 x601

I joined the Aldersgate UMC team in July 2021. Before that, I served Beulah UMC in Richmond for three years as the associate pastor. Prior to that appointment, I spent time at Duke Divinity School getting my Master of Divinity degree and I graduated in 2018. In ministry, I am passionate about creating new forms of church through Fresh Expression ministries, House Church, and seeing God move in the community.


I am married to my wife, Vanessa, and we are the proud parents of our dog, Toto, and our cat, Swiftie. I enjoy spending time outdoors, going mountain biking, and viewing wildlife. I am a native of Nebraska and an avid sports fan.


I am grateful to be part of what God is doing at Aldersgate.
