about jonathan

I’m Jonathan. You can call me whatever you want. I’m not that picky.

I am a Christian, husband, dogfather, son, brother, uncle, educator, student, amateur theologian, egalitarian, and baseball fan, among other things.  I grew up in the Houston area, made stops in Waco, Texas and Wheaton, Illinois, before winding up back where I came from.

I was raised in a faith tradition that spoke of grace but lived for good behavior. I am thankful for my stop at Wheaton College, where I encountered a broader stream of evangelicalism and where my faith could flourish and grow. I am a proud recovering Southern Baptist.

I am married to a strong, beautiful woman who is a little smarter than I am. Her name is Kelsey. We live in a cool little house in the Houston area with our cute miniature poodle. I have some fantastic in-laws that have taught me a thing or two about love, acceptance, generosity and not taking myself too seriously.

I love the church, even though sometimes it grieves me deeply.

I have a music degree from Baylor University and a theology degree from Wheaton College.

By day, I am an elementary music teacher and by Wednesday night and Sunday I am a Traditional Worship Minister at a United Methodist congregation in the Houston area. When I’m not doing either of those things, I enjoy occasional freelance music work, blogging, and hanging out with my ladies (wife and poodle).

    Did you attend the CBE Houston Conference at the end of April? If so, I might have seen/met you.
