My name is Jon Valentine and I am from Gastonia, but don’t hold that against me, I come in peace! I am a comic book fan, movie geek, sports lover, outdoorsman, but most importantly, I am beyond excited to be here in Clover, in this community, in this church, to spread the gospel amongst the children and youth of this congregation and make disciples to go out to this town and share the love of Jesus. I am an Erskine graduate (GO FLEET!) with a degree in Christian Education. I am one of three boys in a loving Christ centered home. I was raised at Pisgah ARP church in Gastonia where the Lord sought me out, made my heart one of flesh, and I have been walking with Him ever since. I am married to the lovely Olivia Beamguard Valentine. We have been married for a little over a year. Olivia works within Clover School District and teaches horseback lessons. We are both excited to be here to join you in worship and help grow this children/youth program. In Christ, Jon Valentine
