Jonathan Martin is the lead pastor of Renovatus: A Church for People Under Renovation in Charlotte, NC. He has been married to Amanda Keen for 11 years, and still finds her delightfully mysterious. Jonathan is an avid collector of comic books and is unashamed of his ten-pound shih tzu Cybil, despite the stigma that comes from being a very large man with a very small dog. Jonathan is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. He holds two master’s degrees, one in Church Ministries from the Church of God Theological Seminary in Cleveland, TN and one in Theology from Duke University in Durham, NC.
NOTE: Jonathan Martin is an “at-large” contributor who allows us to post content from his personal blog, for which we are grateful. Due to his position as the pastor of a growing community of faith, we must stress that his postings here do not necessarily reflect the views of The Christian Manifesto staff or its advertisers, nor does his willingness to share material mean he endorses all of the content that we post.
