About Us


Lead Pastor

Andy Neal

Andy is not new to Temple, just new to the position of lead pastor. He has served on staff since December 2005 and was elected as Pastor in February 2012. Andy's passion for ministry is to see people come face to face with God and His Word and see their lives changed because of that encounter. More than anything Andy wants to see people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ and loves to help in that journey.

Children's Minister

Cathy King

Cathy has a love for children that is seen from the moment she meets your child, and she has a strong desire to see our children grow in their love of God and understanding of His love for them.

College/Student Minister

Jonathan Martin

Jonathan heads up our collegiate ministry, but really just loves people. He has a desire to see the campus of ASU reached with the love of Jesus as well as the city of Jonesboro, and he is very active in finding ways to fill voids and minister to people throughout our city.
