Minister of Families Rev. John N. Harmon came to St. Andrews Baptist Church in August 2016. Before coming to SABC, John served as Associate Pastor for Students at First Baptist Church Swansea for nine years. While there, he founded a community-based multi-church ministry inspired by World Changers, called Community Changers.

An avid sports enthusiast, John has coached high school football and Upward Basketball. He enjoys playing golf and coaching his son’s youth soccer team. He also volunteers at his children’s school as a mentor, serving with the Parent Teacher Organization, and the School Counseling Advisory Board.

John graduated with a BS degree from Columbia International University and a M.Div from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. But, if you ask him, he is most proud of his several semesters at Clemson University – Go, Tigers!

“God has been faithful to mold and shape me as He prepared me for ministry,” John said. One of his favorite verses is Romans 5:8 – “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

John and his wife, Melanie, have two children, Michael and Jena.
