He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (by way of UT Knoxville) with a B.A. in Communication, and a graduate of George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University with an M.Div. in Theology. Jonathan has served student ministries in Nashville and Knoxville, as well as in Waco and Gatesville, Texas.
Jonathan enjoys watching movies, reading, traveling, and attending concerts.

He is an avid soccer fan, and supports Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League—even though they always seem to let him down.
