In summer 2018, our church called Jordan Atkinson to be our pastor. He and his wife, Abi, are blessed with three daughters and since coming to Friendship have welcomed a son into their family. Before serving as Friendship’s pastor, Jordan was a member of Kenwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, where he was a pastoral intern in 2016-2017. He was also associate pastor of youth at Calvary Baptist Church in Fayette, Alabama, from 2010-2014. In addition to pastoral ministry, Jordan enjoys spending time with his wife and children, reading, writing, and playing board games.
