Pastor of New River Fellowship in Chirsitansburg, Virginia Jordan Secrist

LEAD PASTOR // Jordan Secrist

Jordan is originally from Burke, Virginia. After following Jesus at a young age, he felt the call to pursue vocational ministry. He had the opportunity of a lifetime to go Virginia Tech, earning a B.S. in Civil Engineering and a Minor in Religion & Culture. During that time he met his wife Abigail and they got married in June 2018. Jordan continued this call to vocational ministry through completing his M.Div. in Preaching & Pastoral Ministry at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. While in school, he also served as youth pastor for Bethlehem Baptist Church. God blessed them with two children in that season as well: Charli (July 2019) and Jefferson (December 2020). God eventually opened the doors and Jordan became our pastor in June 2021. We have been so blessed to have his leadership during this new chapter in the life of our church!
