Pastor Jamond Jimmerson was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Although his mother, Barbarita Jimmerson, and his father, Demour Welch, played an integral part in his development, his grandmother, Rita Jimmerson, was like a second mother to him who poured into him valuable insight.
Jamond received the call to ministry at the tender age of 19 and was determined to follow Christ for the rest of his life. After attending Forest Park St. Louis Community College for a short time, Jimmerson transferred to Oakwood University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Church Leadership in 2012.
After obtaining his degree, Jimmerson served as an assistant pastor at the St. Louis Berean Church for several months under Pastor Joseph T. Ikner. In August 2013, Jimmerson enrolled in the Theological Seminary at Andrews University. He successfully completed the Master of Divinity program in December 2015 and accepted a call to work in the Central States Conference. “I am so excited and appreciative to work for Christ through the Central States Conference,” said Jimmerson.
The Jimmersons will serve a two church district in Colorado: New Community in Denver and Boston Street in Aurora. “I truly believe that God has called my wife and I to the Denver area for such a time as this. We eagerly look forward to the hand of God moving in a powerful way in Colorado,” Jimmerson added.
Pastor Jimmerson has been married for five years to the love of his life, Twainika. They are anticipating the arrival of their first child on April 8. “As my wife and I embark upon this new journey, we pray that our lives will continually be godly examples for others to follow,” he said.
Pastor Jimmerson enjoys reading, teaching and playing basketball. He is passionate about people and desires to see them grow in the amazing grace of God. His favorite scripture which brings him joy and keeps him grounded is 2 Cor. 5:21: “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
