Redemption Jedi Clergy & Missionaries
« on: January 15, 2020, 11:00:14 AM »
We dedicate this thread as a testimony to all past, present and future Redemption jedi who were, are and will be serving The Lord in their capacity as church leaders.

I have begun my testimonial log below and will update this OP as more info flow in. I personally know a couple of the pastors since they were barely 14 thru local up to national level tournaments.

Please post your info if you are one of these 'Called to Serve' and are/was a Redemption player. Please post info of any Redemption player who has been 'Called to Serve' and is not in the list below.

PRAY HARD! WORK HARD! PLAY HARD!

So wonderful to see how God is working raising men up for ministry, and especially wonderful that we have all been blessed by Redemption! Thanks for putting this together! Praise God.

Yes, he was a youth pastor/director for several years.  (8 to 10 years, I think?)

I am not currently serving, but I have been a FT/PT/Volunteer Youth Pastor on and off for about 10 years and counting. Mostly in the Free Methodist/United Methodist Churches but most recently in the Nazarene Church.

I haven't played Redemption Competitively since the last time Nats was in Ohio (2016?)


Jonathan Greeson was the Associate Pastor of Faith Bible Church in Little Genessee, NY.  but now he is involved with CrossTown Alliance Church, but I am not sure what his actual title is.

I have been serving as a Deacon at my small town church of church known as the First Baptist Church of Moravia. http://www.moraviabaptistchurch.org/leadership.html

I've been enthusiastically serving in this capacity as a member of the spiritual leadership for about 8 months now and love to learn from and teach the Word of God. About 10 years ago, I was captain of the New York State Redemption Team and was an avid tournament host. I have recently gotten back in the game and am very excited to use it to grow our church members in a more thorough knowledge of the Bible and use it as a fun and engaging way to expose my community to the Gospel.

I'm the pastor at Popcorn Christian Church in Springville, IN and started serving there on 7/1/2022. I absolutely love being the pastor and am so, so thankful that the Lord called me to serve this way! Praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit!

I was ordained as a deacon with First Baptist Church of Universal City this year of 2024.

I want God and his glory to be my greatest drive and joy, and I want to bring his good news of Redemption through his blood to the world. And I love the game of Redemption as a fun tool to do so.
