Lead Pastor


Pastor Jeth Looney and his wife, Kerri, live in Clay County with their two sons: Blake and Caden. Jeth surrendered his life to Jesus at the age of nine. After many rebellious years and lessons learned, Jeth felt the call to serve in ministry.

In 2002, Jeth became a student pastor and continued to shepherd students for the next eleven years. He then transitioned to a campus pastor role in a church restart, where he faithfully ministered until July of 2013.

In 2014, God led the Looney’s to a new church plant in the urban core of Jacksonville, The District Church. Jeth served as a volunteer before transitioning into a pastoral role, where he oversaw church-wide discipleship. This season at The District Church served as catalyst for the call to plant a church. In September 2017, Jeth started a church plant residency with The Church of Eleven22. In following months, he formed a core group to cast a vision for planting Doxa Church.

Jeth grew up in Green Cove Springs and has a heart for the people of Clay County. He graduated from Liberty University in 2010 with a degree in Religion. Jeth is known for his down-to-earth personality, compassion for others, and affection for preaching the Scriptures. When Jeth isn’t spending time with family, you can find him reading a book or surfing.
