The Williams Community Church is excited to welcome a new pastor to the pulpit. It is said that God works in mysterious ways, and that he does. This divine plan began in the summer of 2016 when Jason McMullan and his young family moved to Williams to be closer to ailing relatives. Jason and his wife Jamie had only been members of the church for a few months when the long-time pastor, Craig Rolen, and his family had the calling to return to Texas.
Jason said “I felt a great affinity for the congregation, and knew that our family was meant to be here long-term. It was with Pastor Craig Rolen’s resignation, that I realized the threadwork that God had sewn over the course of years, and my preparation through experiences, to bring me to this small town and serve Him”. Jason stated that his motivation for “throwing his hat into the ring” grew out of a deep love for the congregation and those within it. He stated he has been all over the country and has never served or attended a church, where people had such a deep love and affection for being with their Christian brothers and sisters as well as joining with them in fellowship, discipleship, and worship.
Pastor McMullan is a native of Fairfield, Ca and his wife was raised in Elk Grove, Ca. He served in ministry in California since 2003, but moved for a time out of state for work. They lived in South Carolina and Nevada before finally returning to California to settle down. Pastor McMullan was raised Presbyterian and received his initial Christian upbringing in this denomination. He has served primarily in Christian Education, working as a Director of Christian Ed, and Youth Director at the Rockville Presbyterian Fellowship in Fairfield for four years. He also has pastoral experience within the Baptist denomination, serving as a Director of Children’s Ministries and as an Associate Pastor of Families & Children at the Crosspoint Church in Sacramento for eight years. Pastor McMullan’s diverse religious background made him the perfect choice to spread God’s message at a “community church”, where people of all religious backgrounds and beliefs are welcome to worship in a place of love and unity for all.
Pastor McMullan said “The work of ministry is a taxing one, but incredibly rewarding. As I stand at the helm of a church that has deep roots in this community, I aim to bring the Gospel, and the implications of its love, to a people that need Jesus. I look forward to working alongside our congregation, and enjoying the harvest that is at hand within our community. That all that we do is Soli Deo Gloria – to the Glory of God Alone”.
Pastor McMullan is looking forward to serving the Williams Community Church and community faithfully and deliberately. The McMullan’s have three children, Jordan (12), Jaycie (8), and Judah (2). You are invited to join the McMullan family and the entire congregation at the Williams Community Church for a worship service soon. ■
