Rev. Jonathan Poarch
(703) 765-6555 x601
I am excited to join Aldersgate UMC as of July 2021. I previously 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. In ministry, I am passionate about creating new forms of church through Fresh Expression ministries and seeing God move in the community.
I am married to my wife, Vanessa, and we are the proud parents of our dog Toto. I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, mountain biking, and viewing wildlife. I am a native of Nebraska and an avid sports fan.
I am grateful to join what God is doing at Aldersgate.
