Jonathan Bishop was born on April 18, 1997, in Atlanta, Georgia and is the son of Wes and Melissa Bishop. He is thankful for his godly heritage and is honored to be the fourth generation in his family to be members of the Church of God.
Jonathan relocated to North Carolina and first visited Matthews Church of God in 2012. He says he immediately felt as if it was where God wanted him to be. Since becoming a member of the church, Jonathan has been sanctified, filled with the Holy Spirit, and called to preach the Gospel. In 2016, he completed the Church of God’s Calling and Ministry Studies program and received his Exhorter’s license in January, 2017. He plans to continue his training to become an ordained minister. Jonathan loves being involved in the various ministries of the church. He greatly enjoys preaching, teaching Sunday school, working with the media team, and singing in the choir. He is also a student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte studying electrical engineering and mathematics with plans to graduate in 2019. Jonathan’s greatest desire is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ wherever the Lord may lead him.
