John Weathersby is a Christian Church pastor and Church planter in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Originally from Western North Carolina and South Florida – John has traveled a lot and now lives with his wife Briana and their 5 children.

Pastor John is a husband of one wife, is blessed to be the father of 5 awesome children, holds to a reformed view of scripture, and enjoys collecting beautifully bound Bibles.

John pastors and planted First Reformed and enjoys serving God in the city of Harrisburg.  John truly believes that by grace, God saves through Christ’s finished work.  That lives are legitimately changed when the gospel is applied, and faith is realized.

John’s favorite Bible verse (if he MUST pick 1) is Matthew 1:21 because it shows the awesome power of God over life and in salvation.  More specifically, John is intrigued by the words of a very sick child’s father here: Mark 9:23–25.  The Elders and Deacons at First Reformed aims to teach The Bible one book, one chapter, and one verse at a time. John is firmly committed to this end and believes that because The Word does not return void, God’s people will be drawn through His living word.  All that First Reformed does is aligned to this aim while serving the mission to teach the Bible.
