Jonathan grew up in Panama City, Florida, but has been in Texas for so long most of the sand is out of his car. He attended Truett Seminary at Baylor University; has served churches and ministries in DFW, Austin, and East Texas as pastor, campus pastor, and worship leader; and has served in young adult missions in Israel and Palestine. He is currently a commissioned provisional elder in the United Methodist Church and serves on the advisory board for the North Texas Conference Zip Code Connection poverty initiative and the Denton Wesley Foundation. Jonathan loves soccer, learning, creativity, and people. Oh, and coffee — Jonathan loves coffee.
