My name is Jon McLean and I began serving as a pastoral intern here in 2019. The Lord first led me to the church through a short, summer internship in 2017 while on break from pursuing graduate studies at Bob Jones University. I am so thankful to the Lord for allowing us to return to this assembly of believers for further growth and ministry together. The Lord graciously allowed me to grow up in a home with Christian parents who taught me the Word of God and who took me to a church which preached the Gospel. When I was 7 years old, I accepted Christ. Since then, through the many changes of life, the Lord has continued to teach me and make me more like his Son, Jesus Christ. In 2017 I married my wonderful wife Jenn, and we are so thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord together in our marriage!
The Lord gave me a desire to work in vocational ministry as a young man. I attended Bob Jones University for my undergraduate studies and received my bachelor’s degree in music education in 2015. I entered the seminary at Bob Jones University that fall and completed my Master’s Degree in Theological Studies in 2018. During that time, I worked as a men’s residence hall supervisor, and the Lord used those years in that position to steadily increase my desire for church ministry. Following the 2018-2019 school year, during which I had begun pursuing a Master of Divinity degree, Jenn and I moved to Cuyahoga Falls to begin interning at Falls Berean Bible Church. We are so thankful to the Lord for his clear direction in our lives and for his grace in giving us more time ministering to and with the church family at Falls Berean Bible Church.
My desire is to serve the Lord and his people, always remembering that the Lord gave himself for me in his life, death, and resurrection. What a privilege it is to serve this risen Savior! If I can be of help to you in any way, please don’t hesitate to call me at (440) 488-3571 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
