Name: Jonathan Ramsey
Email: js.ramsey@hotmail.com
Years in Ministry: 20 Yrs

Ministry Philosophy:
To help build the Church the way the Lord would have us to grow; not only numerically but also spiritually. To preach and teach the Word of God as it is, to people as they are, so that people’s life’s will be changed and more importantly that the Lord would be satisfied in all that is done and accomplished.

Conversion:
I was raised in a Christian home and was saved at a young age (First Grade) when I accepted Christ as my Savior. In my teenage years I started to wander away from God and do what I wanted to do. At the age of eighteen I realized that I needed to run back to God and surrender my life to him, to do His will and not my will.

Calling:
My calling was not a loud call but a definite call from God, to give my life to Him, to serve Him and to teach and preach the Gospel. To live a life that is full, and with God in control of every aspect of my life, to see lives changed and people coming to Christ. To be an Influence for Christ, to the people around me to the best of my ability.

Childhood:
Grew up in Dallas, TX in loving, caring environment. Attended Temple Christian School from K-12th

Marital Commitment:
I married my High School sweetheart Staci, we were married on August 10th, 1996. She was born in Idaho and quickly moved to California until she was in Jr. High, her family then made the move to Texas. When Staci was in 10th Grade they moved to Dallas.
