Jay Barrowclough

LOT 2540 Staff Pastor


When inquiring about LOT 2540 needing a preacher for the position of staff pastor, the reply was “not a preacher exactly” – which seems to properly describe the position. In reality, the staff pastor’s duties are to do as necessary to meet the needs of the people we serve. The duties are, but not limited to, running the register, moving product, preparing for the ‘Food Pantry’, working with volunteers, meeting local pastors and visiting churches, assisting customers, and guiding the weekly prayer and Bible study group. However, the primary duty is ministering to and serving those in need.

Jay was first ordained in 1989 and pastored ‘Highways and Hedges Ministries’ in Greensboro, N.C. from that time until late 2001. He also taught art at Western Rockingham Middle School in Madison, N.C. from 1987 – 2014. He retired from the school system in June of 2014 and joined the LOT in November, 2014.
