MEET THE PASTOR
Pastor Jamond Jimmerson was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri. Although his mother Barbarita Jimmerson and his father Demour Welch played an integral part in his development, his grandmother Rita Jimmerson was like a second mother to him who poured into him valuable insight. He received the call to ministry at the tender age of 19 and was determined to follow Christ for the rest of his life. He attended Forest Park St. Louis Community College and then transferred his credits to Oakwood University where he received his Bachelors of Science Degree in Church Leadership in 2012.
After obtaining his BS degree, he served as an assistant Pastor at the St. Louis Berean SDA Church for several months under Pastor Joseph T. Ikner. In August of 2013, Pastor Jimmerson enrolled to the Seventh-day Theological Seminary: Andrews University. He has completed the Masters of Divinity program in December 2015 and has excepted the call to work in the Central States Conference of Seventh-day Adventist.
Pastor Jimmerson has been married to the love of his life “Twainika Jimmerson” for 5 years now. They welcomed their first child, Levi in April 2016. He enjoys reading, teaching and playing basketball. Pastor Jimmerson is passionate about people and desires to see them grow in the amazing grace of God. His favorite scripture which brings him joy and keeps Him grounded is found in 2 Corinthians 5:21 – “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
