Our Pastors

Lead Pastor | Jonathan Lawler   jonathan@fbcmtorab.org

Jonathan was called as Lead Pastor in January of 2016 after serving a three month interim at the church.  Prior to that, he and his wife, Tara, served as managers of a Chick-fil-A in Columbus, Ohio.  While living there, they were faithful and active members at Sharon Woods Baptist Church.

Jonathan earned his B.A. from Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, and his M.Div. in Biblical Counseling from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  He was ordained in 2014 while preparing to fully answer the call that God has placed on his life.  His passion is seeing God’s Spirit use His Word to bring about life transformation in His people.

Jonathan enjoys landscaping and going on hikes with Tara.  The two met in middle school and were married in May of 2008.  They have four sons, one of whom went to be with Jesus shortly after he was born.
