Jonathan married the love of his life, Angie, in 2005. Whether swimming with his girls or wrestling with his son, Jonathan enjoys being a dad above all his many other responsibilities. When he and Angie relax, they love to frequent new restaurants and getaway to popular travel destinations. A native of the bayous, he enjoys everything outdoors, especially water sports. He especially likes to fish and Yolo, sometimes doing both at the same time.
At heart, Jonathan is a creative leader. His musical innovation and leadership style define the best of the new generation of church leaders.
