Jonathan, his wife Adrienne, and their son Jakob share a calling to serve Christ’s Kingdom by building a healthy Christian family. Jonathan’s other Kingdom callings include writing (from poetry to newspaper articles to academic publications) and teaching, but also church ministry and foreign missions. He ministered at Steele’s Chapel Christian Church in Corbin, KY, and has assisted various congregations, including Cole Mill Road Church of Christ in Durham, NC. Jonathan grew up as a missionary kid in Zaire, Africa, and has done short-term work in Santiago, Chile; Ujung Pandang, Indonesia; and Papua New Guinea.
