Pastor Williamson has been pastor at St. John since March 2020, (perhaps an unfortunate time to begin at any church) during the start of the covid pandemic. In that time, St. John has been recovering under his care from the year of pandemic but at the same time has been blessed with a renewed children's ministry and an additional worship service. Pastor seeks to have his life point to Christ and his great work.
He is married to his beautiful wife, Sarah, who is his sounding board. He has three Children, Levi (6) Emily (4) and Hazel (1) who keep both him and Sarah busy. Pastor hopes that, like him, his children will grow up in the faith and point to Christ in all things they do.
Pastor Williamson is passionate about Music, teaching the young to be disciples, preaching, and Formula 1 Racing. He Graduated from Concordia University with a bachelor of Arts in Music (2011) and from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis with his M.Div (2017)
Colby is currently a junior at Lamar University Beaumont and his working on finishing his Bachelor of Arts in Music by Spring 2024. He is also getting a Certification in Parish Music through Concordia University Online and is interested into going into pastoral ministry in his future.
As Worship Arts Director, he is currently overseeing all of the music for the Contemporary Service as well as coordinating the rehearsals and leading the services as Worship Leader. He is also branching into the more 'traditional' form of music by finding ways to incorporate Brass ensembles into the traditional service.
As Youth Director, Colby is taking the Youth in a much more modern direction. Because of his younger age, he is able to relate to the High School Youth in an organic way, being not far removed from High School. Colby knows what it means to be a devoted Christian in a world that is not built upon God's Word and Love.
