Jon and Tracie Becker with their four children: Taylor, Caedmon, Thymian, and Tatiana
Jon Becker came to pastor Concord Presbyterian Church from Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, TN, where he served as a teaching pastor and the Director of Evangelism and Discipleship.
His arrival in Gulf Breeze was very much a home-coming. He grew up sailing here on the Gulf Coast (in Perdido Key and along Perdido Bay) and attended high school and college right here in Pensacola, graduating from PCS in 1988. He and his wife of 22 years, Tracie, met while students at a Christian college and married a few years after graduation while Jon was serving at his first church and attending seminary.
Dr. Becker (B.A., ThM, PhD) is a graduate of Pensacola Christian College, Logos Christian College, Southwestern Seminary, and Princeton Theological Seminary. His dissertation, "From One Shepherd to Another: The Design and Implementation of Gospel-Centered Leadership from Paul to Timothy and Titus," is a commentary on the gospel-centered leadership of Paul within the 1st Century church.
Our pastor seeks to demonstrate a life that has been centered by the Gospel. He is grateful that his personal life and his leadership have been significantly shaped by God’s sovereign grace.
Some of his journey has been published in a series of articles entitled, “From Entitlement to Dependency: Discovering His Grace in Your Brokenness.”
His teaching ministry is marked by expositional messages that seek to make plain the teaching of the scriptures while always pointing to Christ and to His completed work on our behalf.
