Jonathan has been married over 22 years to his wife, Donna; and they have 2 daughters. He has been in a pastor role for over 20 years. Having planted a new church and assisted several church planting teams, helping new churches start and grow is very close to his heart. He believes a local church should create environments that both engage the heart of a Non-Christian and encourage the Christian to the next level in their journey with God. He loves fishing, hunting, and spending time in the mountains. He holds a B.S. and M.A.R. from Liberty University and a M.Div from Southeastern Seminary.
