Jonathan L. Vorce was born December 15th, 1967 in Mt Pleasant, Michigan USA. He is the son of a Pioneer Pastor, and preached his first message at the age of 8 years old. He received his call to the ministry in a revival preached by B.P. Carrol at the Bible Holiness Assemblies of God in Neosho, MO where Rev. D.C. Branham was Pastor. All throughout his teenage years, Pastor Jonathan preached in churches, on street corners, in rest homes, and in prisons. He preached youth services, and youth revivals, was the guest speaker in several youth camps, as well as many church revivals. This created such a demand for his ministry, that when he graduated High School in 1985, he began a full time evangelistic and missionary ministry. During the next 7 1/2 years, Pastor Jonathan traveled throughout the US, Mexico,Canada, and Jamaica. He also preached revivals, crusades, conventions, and camp meetings. He was a frequent guest on both radio and television programs. God shifted him and began to lead him in a different direction in 1993. Since 1993, Pastor Jonathan has served as Senior Pastor for 4 different congregations. He currently serves as a board member and trainer for the International Fellowship of Chaplains and the Lead Pastor of the Lakewood Church of God in Bayonet Point, FL. where his main focus involves, but is not limited to, organization, administration, leadership training, teaching and preaching, counseling, mentoring and being an example to those he is privileged to lead. He has also been actively involved in Civic Leadership in the local communities where he has served on various boards including Christian school boards, Chamber of Commerce, Coalition for Racial Reconciliation and various other positions of civic leadership. (both elected and appointed). On January 27th, 1990, Jonathan married his beautiful wife Donna, and God blessed them with three children, twin daughters Susie & Nikki, and a son Jeremiah. Pastor Jonathan feels that few ministries can achieve this level of success without having to fight battles. He often says, "In order to be successful in today's ministry climate you just have to love God more than you hurt."
