Pursued by a loving God
We believe that those who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances into the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership.
Everywhere we turn, it seems as if people today are looking for leaders who will conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect people’s lives.
This is why any position of leadership at New Point is held with great humility and understanding that the primary leader to the church is always Jesus. Our responsibility as leaders is to follow His lead to the best of our ability.
Pastor Jordan came to New Point Church in June of 2015 to serve as Teaching Pastor, and also oversee the Tech & Production Department.
In January of 2018, he became the Lead Pastor.
For nearly fifteen years, Jordan has served as a Lead Pastor, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, and Creative Media Director. No matter the role he has found himself in, Jordan has always sought to help people experience Jesus in ways that would change their life.
Prior to coming to New Point, he was a Creative Media Specialist at the University of Iowa. As a communicator, he continues to use the creative skills he has learned in the church and in his profession to present the Gospel in creative ways.
Jordan and his wife Lindsey have been married since 2005 and have four young daughters; Madison, Maiah, Mackenzie, and Mollie. He is a graduate of INSTE Bible College in 2005 where he studied Theology. He is also a graduate of Kirkwood Community College with a degree in Web Technologies.
Emily came to New Point in 2005 with her husband Jason. They both love how welcoming New Point is and that they walk away with a message each week that they can apply to their lives.
Emily began with our children’s ministry in 2009 and is now one of our Children’s Directors here at New Point. She is blessed to have the opportunity to help our kids learn about Jesus in a fun and exciting way. She loves people and enjoys seeing them find their place within our church.
When she is not working in children’s ministry she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jason and their children: Jackson, Bennett and Stella. She loves to entertain and loves to cook.
