Jonathan Davis serves as the pastor of Beale Memorial Baptist Church in Tappahannock, Virginia.
- Where did you grow up?
In the northern suburbs of Houston.
- What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?
I’ve always been drawn to this passage, which Martin Luther King Jr. quoted in his “I Have a Dream” speech. I find it challenging that God tells the people their worship is insincere and displeasing if not authenticated by godly living.
- What is your favorite movie? Why?
Spielberg’s masterpiece (which is saying a lot) is some of the best screenwriting, directing, acting and cinematography of all time, and it’s based on an incredible, true story of bravery and humanity in the face of unspeakable evil.
- Who are three people you admire?
Diana Butler Bass, Wally Goodman (director of Logsdon Seminary’s San Antonio campus) and the late Cecil Sherman.
- What is one little-known fact about yourself?
During my sophomore year at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas, I was a cheerleader and would eventually propose to my wife on the 50-yard line at halftime while dressed in our school’s “Yellow Jacket” mascot outfit.
