Jordan & Carlin Whittington

Our New College Minister

   Carlin and Jordan have been married since 2011. They met each other the first week of college at the University of Alabama and have been best friends ever since. The two dated during their college years and were married following Carlin finishing her Master’s degree.  They have a tiny little dog (5 lbs) named Pressley that thinks he is the one in charge of the house!

Jordan’s Education background

  • Undergraduate Degree from The University of Alabama in Secondary Education (Mathematics) [2010]
  • Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School [2014]

Carlin’s Education background

  • Bachelors and Masters Degree from The University of Alabama in Primary Education

Why College Ministry
   College was a formational time for Carlin and me. While attending the University of Alabama, we were heavily involved in the Well Ministry at Calvary Baptist Church. Jordan served as the ministry intern for 2 years with a variety of tasks to help lead a ministry that was growing to 700+ students every week. One aspect that Carlin and I both valued was being a part of the whole church. Carlin and I both spent time serving the children and youth ministries.
    For the last 2.5 years, Jordan has served as the Student Pastor at Lost Mountain Baptist Church in Powder Springs, Ga (just outside of Atlanta, Ga). My responsibilities focus on Middle School, High School, and College students. During our time at LMBC, we have come to realize that our true passion is in college ministry. We want to share the transformational time that we enjoyed with other college students. These last two years we have been given a taste of college ministry as we have opened our home to college students, from the nearby campus of Kennesaw State University. This time has focused around eating together, studying the word, and providing an environment in which these students are loved and can grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
