Buenos Aires, Argentina
Jonathan was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and was raised in a missionary family. He was exposed to the ministry of church-planting and church leadership training from a young age. After the Lord saved him when he was fifteen, Jonathan had a desire to serve Christ and the local church in a Spanish-speaking context. A few years later, he would leave Uruguay to pursue ministry training in the U.S.
At The Master’s Seminary, Jonathan completed his M.Div. degree and is currently finishing his Th.M. studies. While working on his graduate studies, Jonathan became a member of Grace Community Church, where he served in the Spanish Ministry and met his wife, Carolina.
Carolina is originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She grew up in a pastor’s home and came to know the Lord at a young age. Carolina is a graduate of The Master’s University with degrees in both Communications and Biblical Counseling.
The Willoughbys hope to serve the Lord in Argentina and the surrounding countries by ministering to the local church personally and through the equipping of pastors and leaders in Bible exposition.
They have two kids, Tobias (2016) and Sofia (2017).
