Finally, I wish to encourage you by sharing that Psalm 68:19 declares, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loaded us with benefits”. Everyday of your life put your faith in God, and watch Him bless you exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything you could ask or imagine. Have a wonderful day in the Lord.

Pastor Weaver’s Bio
Jonathan Leslie Weaver, a native Marylander, accepted his appointment to Greater Mt. Nebo African Methodist Episcopal Church in April of 1988. Under Rev. Weaver’s spiritual guidance, the Greater Mt. Nebo family has increased from 100 members to more than 1,600 and has approximately 50 ministries that serve the church and the greater community. Under the Vision to Victory Campaign, Rev. Weaver spearheaded Greater Mt. Nebo’s purchase of 87 acres of land and the building of our current house of worship, as well as, our Christian Academy located in Bowie, Maryland. Upon its completion, the Greater Mt. Nebo campus will house an assisted-living care facility and a Family Life and Wellness Intergenerational Center. God has blessed Rev. Weaver with a vision to build a worship facility that will serve both the Greater Mt. Nebo family and the broader community.
Rev. Weaver has a strong belief that one’s Christian duty should encompass community outreach. Under Rev. Weaver’s leadership, Greater Mt. Nebo’s ministries have had many successful projects in the community such as assisting in the Christmas in April Program, Food & Friends, and the Tools for School Program. Rev. Weaver’s sense of community transcends the borders of Prince George’s County. In 1991,1995, and the summer of 2004, Rev. Weaver led mission trips to West Africa on behalf of Greater Mt. Nebo. In 1999, Rev. Weaver preached and lectured in Swaziland and served as an official delegate to the Conference on Reconciliation held in Benin. As a result of his willingness to extend his gifts and talents to those abroad, Greater Mt. Nebo has developed close ties in parts of West Africa and recently adopted a village in Benin.
