Donte Witherspoon // Associate Pastor
About Pastor DONTE...
Donte Witherspoon is the Associate Pastor for Unite Church, with his main focus overseeing ministries. Donte was born in Cleveland, Ohio but spent most of his life in both Northern and Southern California respectively. Growing up in a church at an early age Donte was told that he would be a pastor one day. Regardless of his fantasy of one day playing professional basketball (like every kid who grew up wanting to Be Like Mike) and being prophesied over as being a future pastor, Donte found his calling in wanting to help others as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
The ambitious young Donte set out to accomplish his goal in wanting to help others and earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology from the University of La Verne. He then went on to get his Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. Donte has since then used his expertise to help others in his last church serving alongside Pastor Jeff Snodgrass in Student Ministries and as an Associate Pastor and Marriage & Family Therapist at their former church.
Donte married his college sweetheart Erica Witherspoon. They met at the University of La Verne where they both competed on the Track & Field Team. Donte and Erica have two children, Donte Witherspoon Jr. and Jordan Witherspoon. The Witherspoon family are excited to help unite the people of Pasadena with God and others.
