Our Team

So, who are the leaders and staff at Providence Midland? These are the people who uplift and support the community and operations at church.

He is married to Rachel, has 2 daughters, and loves the outdoors. Jordan serves as senior pastor where he is responsible for preaching, equipping congregants for ministry, leading the staff team, and the overall direction of the church.
