Jarrod Longbons: Don't Overlook the First Command

Day1 Weekly Program

Dr. Jarrod Longbons says loving others as ourselves--the second great command--may seem easier, to treat another person with justice, compassion, charity, and grace. But don't neglect the first great command, even though it’s not easy to imagine loving a God who is beyond being, ineffable, and mysterious with our whole being.

Jarrod Longbons: An Answer for Our Ruminations

Day1 Weekly Program

Dr. Jarrod Longbons offers helpful guidance in dealing with toxic ruminating. Paul’s words in Philippians 4 can help as well: to ruminate instead of what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, praiseworthy—to think about such things.

Rev. Dr. Jarrod Longbons: Socially Distant. Spiritually Connected.

Chat with Leaders Podcast

Chat Guest Rev. Dr. Jarrod Longbons is the sixth Senior Minister of Peachtree Christian Church in its illustrious 90-year history. Dr. Longbons and his wife Colleen are natives of Central Illinois, and both have been blessed to come from Christian homes. As a teenager, Dr. Longbons sensed a calling to vocational ministry and has spent his entire adult life pursuing this calling. He preached his first sermon at age fifteen, and he has since served in each of the three main branches of the Campbell-Stone Movement: Disciples of Christ, Independent Christian Churches, and Churches of Christ. This experience combined with the movement’s ethos toward unity has shaped Dr. Longbons’ deep desire for inter-denominational Christian unity and authentic community. Dr. Longbons has an undergraduate degree in theology and homiletics from Lincoln Christian University, and a master’s degree in contemporary theology focusing on theology, philosophy, and ecology. He earned his Ph.D. in theology from the University of Nottingham under the supervision of John Milbank. Dr. Longbons’ research focuses on the doctrine of creation, ecology, and the church as a “community of creation.” In addition to serving the local church and his theological scholarship, Dr. Longbons has enjoyed the occasional adjunct teaching position and opportunities to guest lecture. His wife Colleen has been an indispensable part of his ministry for over ten years, first as a volunteer to youth and then later as a mentor to young women and as a member of various groups: worship teams, book clubs, Bible classes, and children’s programs. Dr. Longbons describes Colleen as him, “partner in redemption” who “enchants the world.” They have two daughters and a son.  Chat Highlights Tell me more about your leadership of Peachtree Christian Church in the heart of Atlanta GA.

Living in the Between // May 21, 2017 // Rev. Jarrod Longbons

Peachtree Christian Church Sermons

What is the most important part of a story? The beginning? The end? For true believers and disciples of Christ, the beginning and end of 'the story' are known. Perhaps the most important part of the story is the middle. What are we doing in the time since and before the first and second coming of Jesus Christ? How we spend this 'between' time is vitally relevant not only for you, but for those around you, and for the entire world.

The Good Shepherd // May 7, 2017 // Rev. Jarrod Longbons

Peachtree Christian Church Sermons

In the Gospel of John, chapter 10, we hear a detailed description of the relationship between shepherd and sheep. This masterful metaphor describes the relationship of Christ with those who put their trust in Him. In a world full of deception, fraud, and imposters, you can find authentic love and sacrifice in the risen Lord Jesus Christ. He is truly the only Good Shepherd and He will always care for, protect, and love his flock. What does it look like when a community embraces this truth? This message answers that question.
