Senior Pastor

Jeff Dravenstott

Jeff Dravenstott has been serving as the senior pastor of Midway Baptist Church since April 2005. Pastor Jeff was born and raised in Ashland, Ohio. At the age of eighteen, he joined the Army and spent the next 19.5 years serving the government around the world. With 19.5 years of military and federal service, God called Pastor Jeff into full-time ministry. He wrestled with completing 20 years but felt God calling him out immediately. Pastor Jeff left within the month and has never regretted a moment.

Pastor Jeff was saved at the age of 30 under the ministry of Pastor Walter Lee Hodges of Grace Baptist Church, Columbus, Georgia in 1987. He felt at the time of his salvation that God gave him the gift of evangelism. For the next 10 years, he served on the evangelism team and as a Sunday School Teacher. He went on to become an Associate Pastor and then planted a church called New Hope Baptist Church in the North Highland community of Columbus.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies and a Master of Arts in Practical Ministries from Beacon University. He then went on to Luther Rice University and graduated with a Master of Divinity.

Pastor Jeff and Chris were married in 1985.  Chris is an English teacher at a high school for the Muscogee County School System in Columbus, GA.  Their son, Samuel, is working as a teller with a Columbus Bank and working on his bachelor's degree in Finance.  Melanie, their daughter, is married to Steven Gouine and is teaching fourth grade at a Muscogee County Elementary School.  Steven and Melanie serve as our Youth Directors.

Chris serves as director of the church's WMU and is a Sunday School Teacher.

Pastor Jeff loves to run, spend time in the mountains, and read anything related to church ministry and evangelism.
