Rev. Jonathan Harris & Family

Rev. Jonathan Harris grew up in Rock Hill, South Carolina, where he was active at Aldersgate United Methodist Church. He graduated from Winthrop University in 2008, where he was active in campus ministry, with a Bachelor’s degree in music performance. He graduated from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 2013.

Jonathan and his wife, Marissa, were married in 2010. They have two biological sons: Isaac, who was born in 2012, and Micah, born in 2015. He and Marissa also do foster care through Epworth Children’s Home and have fostered five children in addition to their biological sons. In his free time, Jonathan enjoys playing a variety of percussion instruments, reading, running, and following Atlanta Braves baseball. His greatest joy is watching his kids grow up.

In addition to pastoring Mt. Zion, Jonathan serves on the SC Conference Board of Pensions and Health Benefits and chairs the Anderson District’s Board of Congregational Development.

Before coming to Mt. Zion in 2019, Jonathan served for six years at First United Methodist Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. He firmly believes in the power of relationships – not just for us to change others, but for others to change us. And so, he looks forward to meeting you and seeing how he will be changed through knowing you.
