OUR PASTORS

T H E R O E F A M I LY

Jordan, Bethany, Madelyn, Kirsten, and Harper

At Mission Community Church, you can truly come as you are, but expect to leave changed. If you know the Roe family, you know that this isn’t just how they view church, but how they view life and family. Jordan and Bethany have three girls, Madelyn, Kirsten, and Harper and they desire to raise their children in an environment where everyone, regardless of background or status, is welcomed, loved, and brought into community. The Roes understand firsthand that life isn’t an easy road, but have also experienced how the grace and love of Jesus transforms even the bleakest of situations. Pastor Jordan and Bethany Roe have been in ministry most of their married life. For the past 11 years, they have been leading as a part of a team of pastors in the Nashville, Tennessee area, helping oversee a network of campuses known as New Song Christian Fellowship Nashville. Their specific focus was in some communities south of Nashville —Spring Hill and Columbia. Some of the roles they have held include leadership in youth ministry, worship, evangelism, young adults, and most recently— and for the last eight years—campus pastors for the Spring Hill congregation. While the Roes had much vision for the future in Tennessee, God had other plans, and during a sabbatical in 2017, they began to sense that the Lord might be calling them to something very different than what they had planned. After much prayer and counsel, they determined to move their family to south Florida on the adventure of a lifetime and begin something new—a

church that is Gospel-centered and fully integrated with the greater Body of Christ in Lee County. Jordan and Bethany are trying to raise a family that believes that God’s love is transformational, and they would be honored to join your family in the journey.

OUR STORY When we reflect upon our years as the Roe family, the faithfulness of God is what stands out the most. Faithfulness describes someone who is true to his word, reliable, and able to be completely trusted. We have witnessed this truth about God and are confident this is available to all who put their faith in Him.

Where family challenges should have produced instability and chaos, we found belonging through the Body of Christ. And where life-threatening illness should have brought great amounts of fear and sadness, we discovered joy and the promise of an eternity without pain and suffering.

Though we were both raised in Christian homes, my wife Bethany and I made We have lived life for ourselves, and choices in our teenage and college we have lived life with Jesus. After years to pursue things that resulted in experiencing the two, we broken relationships, confusion, are ruined for anything and destruction.
