About Jonathan

God has given me the privilege to serve as Lead Pastor of Laurel Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC. In summer 2008, the Lord allowed my wife and I to re-launch this work with just a handful of people. Each day we are amazed at God’s blessings as we serve Him in my hometown of Charlotte. I am passionate about the work of the local church, particularly the emphasis of expository preaching.

Kathleen and I were married in 2004 and we have three awesome kids – Kate, Keegan, and Ellie. I’m an avid sport’s fan (Hornets, Panthers, Yankees, TarHeels), enjoy reading, and love to travel.
