MEET THE TEAM
Ben Williams , Worship Pastor at The Church of Eleven22, started in full-time ministry at the age of 23 leading mission trips. He and his wife, Carrie, share a common passion for overseas missions, and together they have led several trips through the years.
After his pastoral ordination in 2005, Ben transitioned into the worship ministry, seeking to create environments that glorify God in Worship and Word.
He has a passion and heart for training worship leaders and influencing the modern church in both musical excellence and historical liturgy. He also enjoys working with songwriters to craft meaningful, theologically sound work.
Jonathan Vinke is a Worship Leader focusing on our Baymeadows location. He has been leading worship in local churches for 15 years. He has experience in churches of many sizes and denominations and has led cross-cultural worship services at home and on mission trips.
Jonathan holds a Master of Worship Studies (MWS) degree from the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies (IWS) and has a passion for leading gospel-shaped worship and training and developing leaders who understand the biblical and historical framework of worship. Jonathan’s wife Aubrey is a gifted studio and graphic artist. They are foodies who love the beach and have two young children, Eva and Levi.
Michael Olson is the Director of Worship Gatherings and Worship Leader at The Church of Eleven22. After completing his undergraduate studies in music performance at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN, Michael spent 7 years working in the music industry. His passion for honest songwriting and expressive corporate worship opened doors for him as a recording artist with Nashville based Rocketown Records, as well as the opportunity to serve as the touring drummer for CCM artist Michael W. Smith during that season.
He is excited to use his gifts to help expand the work that God is doing through The Church of Eleven22 in Jacksonville and beyond. God used the season that Michael spent in the music industry to prepare and refine him for serving as a worship pastor/leader in the setting of the local church. In total, Michael has spent 8 years serving in this capacity before joining the Eleven22 team.
Michael has been married to his best friend, Ashley, for 13 years. Together they have been tasked with raising three very rambunctious “B” boys: Brody, Bentley, and Beckett. They hope to one day get to a point where they don’t confuse the names of their own children.
Phillip Townsend is the Worship Leader of our Mandarin Campus at Eleven22. With more than 12 years of local church experience throughout the Southeast, Phillip is committed to leading the body of Christ in passionate, gospel-centered worship.
Phillip holds a Master's Degree in Worship Leadership from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and loves to teach and equip new worship leaders. He believes there is a deep need in the church for leaders who are biblically anchored, pastorally wise, and gospel fueled.
Phillip has a beautiful wife named Molly who is both an amazing mom and accountant. Phillip and Molly love to spend time with their young daughter Story, grill out on the weekends, and watch SEC football.
