Jonathan's Ministry Vision
My call is that of a pastor-teacher. A pastor wears many hats as an elder, overseer, and shepherd of the church. Yet as a pastor God has called me to four specific pursuits.
By devoting myself to these pursuits, my goal is to lead the church to worship the true and living God, live in true fellowship with one another, and reach our world with the gospel of Christ.
- Proclaiming the word of God faithfully and accurately in both public and private settings and incorporating it into all aspects of church life (2 Timothy 4:1-2)
- Praying for and with other people consistently and conscientiously and for the vision God has for His church (Acts 6:1-4)
- Preparing the saints for works of ministry by inspiring, mobilizing, equipping, empowering, and overseeing them (Ephesians 4:11-13)
- Protecting the flock of God from the power of the devil, the influences of the world, and the weakness of the flesh (Acts 20:28-31)
