"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths."
Jonatan serves as the Mercy Ministries Pastor at Edmond’s First Baptist Church. He has a desire to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. He loves to invest time in the lives of others with the hope of them placing their faith in Christ.
Jonatan graduated from Langston University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education and Recreation. In 2013, during the last season of his collegiate football career, things began to spin out of control. It was a series of life events that led him to place his faith in Christ. Jonatan now strives to live a life that honors Christ as he servers in the Student Ministry as a 9th and 10th grade Connection Group leader. He desires to reach the youth and do life with them while instilling Biblical principals in their lives. Jonatan enjoys spending time with his three boys, all types of physical exercise, and reading theological books. Jonatan is now pursuing a Master’s degree in Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
