Rev. Jonathan W. C. Findlater
Jonathan has been the Minister at BRBC since February 2018. He is married to Shereen and they have 4 delightful children. Jonathan holds a BA and MTh in Biblical and Theological Studies from Spurgeon’s College, London. Jonathan states, ‘my passion is to see people grow and deepen in their relationship with Jesus Christ and for believers to be equipped in ministry’.
Jonathan accepted Christ as his personal saviour at the young age of 9 and was baptised when he was 10. Although as a child, Jonathan was raised in Kenley and Purley, he attended a Pentecostal church in Brixton with his family, prior to attending New Life Christian Center in Croydon during his teenage years. Whilst attending New Life, Jonathan met Shereen who would later become his wife. Before joining BRBC Jonathan was attending Calvary London in Westminster. It was at Calvary London that Jonathan began to feel a strong call on his life to pursue some form of ministry. Not being certain what that was, Jonathan embarked on a degree course in Theology from which later he sensed a more definate call to pastoral ministry.
Jonathan once trained for the Metropolitan Police, worked in a probation team at Wandsworth Prison, worked at the Home Office and was employed by the Croydon Council. Additionally, Jonathan undertook a diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering and began producing as a side business. Jonathan enjoys spending time with his family, watching films, listening to music, keeping fit and blogging.
