Jonathan is a 2011 graduate of Heartland Christian School. As a student, he was a member of the 2009 State Championship basketball team. He was also heavily involved in numerous school activities including a member of the sound tech team. After graduation, Jonathan followed God's call to join Youth With A Mission (YWAM).
Since joining YWAM, he has travelled extensively across the U.S., Scotland, the Philippines, Singapore, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand. During that time he has served and spoken at numerous churches, helped with large-scale evangelistic campaigns using his skills in live production, led outreach teams to the nations and helped with the discipleship of young people at YWAM Bethlehem in New Zealand. During his time in New Zealand he helped to establish a media ministry at the base which uses video, the web and photography to reach even more people with God's message of hope and salvation. He also helped to pioneer the Leader's Internship program to help in the development of leaders who wish to serve in ministry long term. Jonathan also served on the leadership team at the local church that he was a part of, overseeing the setup teams and the sound teams each Sunday.
Jonathan married the love of his life, Alisa Tualaulelei in March 2016. Jonathan and Alisa met while serving together in New Zealand and they plan to continue serving the Lord with YWAM long term.
