The Jacksonville First Seventh-day Adventist Church is on a faith journey to understand and experience Jesus' commission in Matthew 28. We're all about mission, evangelism, outreach, seeking the lost, being a blessing to the community, and letting God's light shine through us. We're committed to meaningful worship, vibrant spirituality, and self-sacrificing service to others.
If you would like to be part of this faith journey, come worship with us Saturday mornings at 11:00 am. If you'd like to be part of our small group Bible study, you can come a little earlier at 10:00 am. Check out our facebook page and youtube channel!
Our Pastor: Jonathan Peinado received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology with a minor in Biblical Languages and Practical Theology from Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, TN. In 2008 he graduated with his Master's of Divinity degree with an emphasis in Historical Theology at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary in Berrien Springs, MI. In 2009 he began pastoral work in the rural towns of Inverness and Bushnell, Florida. In March of 2011, he received the call to become the Pastor of the Jacksonville First Seventh-day Adventist Church, and was ordained to the Gospel ministry in August of 2012.
Pastor Jonathan has a passion for experiencing God, and for individuals to find their true calling and purpose in life. He desires to leave a legacy where everyone can come to know and experience the promise of Jer. 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Pastor Jonathan is happily married to his wife of 12 years, Irma Michailova.
