Jonathan grew up in Durango, Colorado and has enjoyed exploring what the Rockies have to offer most of his life. He was raised by Christian parents and came to know the Lord at a young age. Since then he’s been involved in countless bible studies, and enjoys preaching whenever he can.
He’s participated in several out of country mission trips including building homes for widows in Mexico and drilling fresh water wells in Peru. He camps, fishes, hunts, backpacks, rock-climbs, and cliff jumps as often as possible. He worked at a camp for inner city youth called Cross Bar X Youth Ranch for four years, in counseling and assistant program directing and bible teaching positions. He also lead the camp’s Service Adventure Leadership Training program for young adults. This included daily bible studies, and weekend backpacking trips. Jonathan is certified in Wilderness First Aid through the Wilderness Medical Society, Medicinal Administration, and CPR through American Red Cross. He is ultimately, like the rest, a recipient of grace.
