Pastor Jonathan Stockstill officially became the lead pastor of Bethany on October 2, 2011, making him the third-generation Stockstill to act as senior pastor for the ministry. In January 2011, both he and Pastor Larry fasted for 21 days to confirm what their board of overseers and family were sensing as direction from the Lord: it was time to pass the baton to the next generation. Pastor Jonathan followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming lead pastor at 30 years old, the same age Pastor Larry was when he took over. Since making the transition, Pastor Jonathan has been leading the church with fresh vision, excitement, passion, and creative ideas to win Baton Rouge and surrounding areas for Christ. His heart to see lives transformed by the power of God and to see people experience new life in Christ is the bedrock of his vision for this new chapter of Bethany’s story.
