About...

Jonathan Collins

I am formerly the Pastor of Grace Baptist Church Of Thomasville, where I had the privilege of pastoring for the last six and a half years.  While there, the Lord greatly blessed and provided in exceeding abundant ways. Presently, I am prayerfully seeking the Lord’s will in where He would have me to serve Him going forward.  

 

In 1995, I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UNC-Greensboro.  Currently, I am actively pursuing a Master of Divinity degree and a Master of Ministry In Pastoral Leadership from Andersonville Theological Seminary.

 

I was called to preach the Gospel in 2003 as a member of Grace Baptist Church.  Later, I was licensed and ordained as a Minister of The Gospel. In June of 2010, I became the Pastor of Grace Baptist Church until its closing in December 2016.  My wife Lisa and I have two children, Joshua & Daniel.  We are members of Colonial Baptist Church in Trinity, NC.

 

History Of Grace Baptist

Grace Baptist Church was organized in 2001 with a faithful and dedicated group of believers under the leadership of Dr. Pastor Keith A. Peters.  

 

For the first few years, without a permanent place of worship, the congregation met wherever the Lord provided a place. Whether it was the Days Inn in Thomasville, two school cafeterias, or two remodeled furniture stores, God blessed and provided for their needs.

 

In 2006, the Lord provided a permanent church building that was the home to the members of Grace Baptist Church until December 2016.

       

Mission & Vision

My desire is to share with others the truths of God's Holy Word and to lead them into a growing relationship with His Son Jesus Christ.  As the Lord leads, I want to continue to create an environment where a biblical community of believers are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, glorify God by loving and serving Him, and by making Him known to the lost both at home and to the many people and groups of the world.

 

Vision For The Church

The Church is to become a biblical community of believers unified in purpose, dynamic in growth and influential in the world, all for the glory of God.
