Jonathan was born in Cape Town but spent most of his life in Johannesburg. After graduating from Wits, he spent 7 years working as an electrical engineer. During this time he met his wonderful wife, Christy. After experiencing the great need for biblical preaching in South African churches, Jonathan pursued training for ministry at The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles. Jonathan, Christy, and their two boys then returned to South Africa with a desire to plant or strengthen a local church. God quickly answered their prayer by providing an opportunity for them to serve Him at Calvary Baptist Church in Richards Bay.

Pursuing further growth in his career, Johan took a position as a maintenance specialist in the minerals processing business in Richards Bay.
