Pastor
Rev. Jake Herron

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!  My name is Jake Herron. 

My wife and I have 4 wonderful children, this is our 12th year in ministry! It is such an exciting time to be in the mountains in Southwest Virginia, and we are ready to work together tobuild the  Kingdom of God here in East Stone Gap! I received my Master’s in Divinity Degree
from Asbury Theological Seminary, and feel God is leading us to work hard in missions here in Big Stone Gap, our community, and throughout the world! My hobbies include, hunting, fishing, golf, fantasy football, and most importantly spending time with my family! We pray the power of the Holy Spirit will continue to lead us together to serve however God leads us! We invite you
to be a part of the thriving congregation here at East Stone Gap, and invite you to check out our strong children’s, youth, and adult ministries! Come join with us and see where God is calling
you to serve at ESG UMC!
