Our Pastor

John Welborn


John Welborn was called to be the Senior Pastor of Salem Church on October 30, 2015, but his passion for the city and ministry through Salem date back long before that. For nearly a decade, Pastor John and his wife, Ashley, have been leading outreach teams to Staten Island to assist the ministry of Salem, and were key leaders during the crisis of Superstorm Sandy.

Pastor John has a Bachelor of Science from Liberty University and a Master of Arts from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Prior to being called to Salem, he was Lead Pastor of Crosslink Community Church (Harrisonburg, VA) for seven years and served as an evangelist for seven years before that.

"It has long been a dream of ours to preach the Gospel, to make disciples, to plant churches, and make a difference on Staten Island and in this great city." - John Welborn

John & Ashley have three children: Gracie, Eli, and Charlie.
