Jonathan grew up in Calgary and, after graduating from university, spent a year in England at Capernwray Bible College before returning to work, first as a teacher, then as a banker and later as a production manager. In 2000 he moved to Vancouver to continue his studies at Regent College. After completing his M.Div he joined Willingdon Church in a pastoral role where he has served for the past 14 years, first as the Pastor of Small Groups and later giving overall leadership to the Adult Ministries department. He enjoys serving the Lord as a pastor and has a passion to see people connected into vibrant Christian communities where they can be cared for and grow in their faith as they follow Christ. He has been married to Noula for 15 years and they have three children.
Jonathan counts his great joys in life as spending time with family and friends, reading, and riding his bike (when the weather is nice).
