Jon & Michelle Perry

Email Jon

I was born in Kansas and then moved to Virginia where I went to high school and met Michelle. I completed my undergraduate degree at Harding University and earned a master’s degree at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. We moved to Huntsville, site unseen, in 1985 to begin my career, and now it is home.

Ministry you are passionate about at Twickenham:
Outreach and Missions
Favorite Bible Verse/character and why:
Favorite verse: My Prayer for Twickenham: Romans 15:5-6: May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Favorite character: Joseph is a favorite character of mine from the Old Testament. He was faced with repeated hardships yet “the Lord was with him” and had a plan to sustain Israel through Joseph’s difficult circumstances. It encourages me to trust in God beyond what I can see.
Favorite Team:
Atlanta Braves, Washington Redskins and any underdog SEC team
Hobbies/Extracurricular Activities:
I enjoy doing projects around the house, yard work and landscaping. As time allows I like to travel, explore new areas and hike. And, as an extended family, we enjoy spending lots of special events and time together (even if we have to make up an event).
What would you tell someone looking for a church home about Twickenham?
We’re a family of kind and generous Christ followers, and it’s a great place to experience real life and serve God.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

Although we were coming from a more conservative background, we quickly noticed that there was an openness and sense of welcoming that made us feel very at ease. We embrace fully what seems to be an environment of healing for the broken. We believe in moving from maintenance to mission. We have been impressed by the engaged nature of the shepherds, staff and membership.

I want to learn more about God’s Word and hold Him close in my heart. Twickenham seems to be able to guide me by offering similar perspectives to which I can relate as well as unique views that open my mind.

I was very impressed with the love, compassion and how sincere the worship is.
