Pastor Jon Medlock
Jon grew up in a small town in north Alabama. After graduating from high school, he attended college in Atlanta, GA, and then law school in Birmingham, AL. Spending time in the world of corporate and commercial litigation taught him great respect for those who work for justice in a system that does not always value it. It also taught him that this was not his calling, and after seven years Jon left his law practice and enrolled as a student at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO. In 2005, he began serving as Assistant Pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church in St. Louis. In 2010 Jon accepted a call to serve as Trinity's Pastor.
Jon and his wife Laurabeth have 6 awesome kids, Andrew, Jack, Chloe, Molly, Sam, and Xander.
Jon is passionate about these things (in roughly this order):
The Gospel — by which God, through the work of Jesus, is forgiving sin, reconciling people to himself and one another, restoring brokenness, redeeming all of creation, and calling his people to push back against the effects of the fall.
Culture — as a window of insight into the ways men and women bear God's image, create things of beauty and worth, and express our longing for redemption.
