John McAtee

Director of Discipleship

Born and raised in Kentucky, John moved to Brentwood with his family 10 years ago. They began attending Forest Hills UMC in January 2017 and were baptized here in June of that year. While serving in lay ministry and having his spiritual life nurtured through communal worship, study, spiritual practice, and participation in his Journey Together small group, John began to sense a call to full-time ministry. John would love to be a companion on your spiritual journey, so stop by for a conversation about life and faith!

John’s previous gigs include teaching math and being a stay-at-home dad. He enjoys running, solving word and logic puzzles, coaching youth basketball, and spending time with his family.
