Buenos Aires, Argentina
Jonathan was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and was raised in a missionary family. From a young age, Jonathan was exposed to the ministry of church-planting and leadership training overseas. Soon after the Lord redeemed his life, he began to prepare for full-time ministry with a desire to invest his life and ministry in the Spanish-speaking context.
Upon graduating from Bible College, Jonathan moved to Los Angeles in order to attend The Master’s Seminary, where he completed his M. Div. Th.M. degrees. While working on his graduate studies, Jonathan became a member of Grace Community Church, where he served for 6 years 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 from The Master’s University with degrees in both Communications and Biblical Counseling.
