Jonathan Pate Falwell (born September 7, 1966)[1] is the senior pastor at the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia.[2] He is the son and successor of the late Reverend Jerry Falwell, and the brother of Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. His older sister, Jeannie, is a surgeon. His mother, Macel Pate Falwell, died in October 2015.

In addition to inheriting his father's position as pastor, Falwell has continued his father's weekly column, Listen America, on various Web sites including NewsMax and WorldNetDaily.[citation needed] He hosts a weekly television show called Main Street Today where he interviews people from all walks of life and discusses how their belief in God has influenced and molded their lives.[citation needed]
