Jonathan Martin is a writer, speaker, and dreamer, who has served as founding/lead pastor at Renovatus: A Church for People Under Renovation in Charlotte, NC, and as Teaching Pastor at Sanctuary Church in Tulsa, OK.
He is a product of the “Christ-haunted landscape” of the American South, sweaty revivals, and hip-hop. And as if his 6'5" frame wasn't commanding enough, Jonathan is a powerful yet gentle voice that reveals what we all need to make it through those uncharted waters of life.
He holds degrees from Gardner-Webb University, The Pentecostal Theological Seminary, and Duke Divinity School. He is the author of How to Survive a Shipwreck: Help is on the Way and Love is Already Here and Prototype: What Happens When You Discover You’re More Like Jesus Than You Think?
He loves to talk about the beauty of God, what an extraordinary thing it is to be called God’s beloved, and finding new ways to be human. He has taken this message to Churches (Willow Creek, Ecclesia, Elevation, Woodland Hills, Word of Life, The Father's House, and Hope Fellowship), Colleges (Princeton Theological Seminary, Gardner-Webb University, Southeastern University to name a few) and conferences across North America.
Currently, Jonathan hails from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
