Jonathan grew up in Essex County, but discovered his desire to plant a church back home while completing his B.A. degree in Biblical Studies. Shortly after college, Jonathan met Nivin when he was a staff pastor at Calvary Temple in Wayne, NJ; in time they married.
After nearly five years of ministry at Calvary Temple, Jonathan became ordained and finished his Master’s degree. The opportunity arose to launch an exciting new church in Caldwell, NJ. Life Source Church was born in the fall of 2009.
Miss Nivin serves along side Pastor Jonathan in various areas of ministry and as Life Source Church's Childrens Ministry Director.
