Pastor Jonathan LambPastor Jonathan Lamb comes to us from Bridgewater UMC where he served as their Associate Pastor of Congregational Care and Youth Ministries and was responsible for organizing Youth Group Events, teaching Confirmation Class, and visiting the local nursing homes.

In 2021, Pastor Lamb was ordained an elder in The United Methodist Church. He served as the youth minister in Bridgewater for two years. Prior to that, his first appointment was as a Pastor at Christ and Fields United Methodist Churches in Shenandoah, Virginia where he served from 2017-2020. Under his Pastoral leadership, Fields Church was successful in implementing handicap accessibility to meet the needs of their congregation and the community.

Pastor Jonathan’s ministry has been shaped by Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 22:37-39: “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself” (Common English Bible). Jesus’ words continue to shape Pastor Jonathan’s ministry by guiding him to listen with compassion, share with others in joys and in heartaches, give freely of himself and his gifts, and love all those he meets.

Pastor Jonathan grew up in Luray, Virginia where his parents and extended family continue to live. He attended Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and went on to Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. Following seminary, Pastor Jonathan served as a hospital chaplain at Lynchburg General Hospital. As he enjoys spending time outdoors, Pastor Jonathan served five summers at Camp Overlook in his early twenties as a counselor and he continues to minister to children and youth at Camp as a volunteer chaplain in the summers. He is looking forward to connecting with the Middleburg community!
