Jonathan currently serves as the lead pastor of Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he has taken the church to new heights in both growth and influence with statewide campuses and Bethany Church plants around the world! Before transitioning to lead pastor, Jonathan served as the worship pastor and recorded more than 10 albums and personally wrote over 100 songs. Although he has released previous albums, Jonathan is very excited for his first solo record, not to mention the first album to release since taking over a lead pastor for Bethany Music in 2011. At heart, Jonathan is a creative leader, his musical innovation and leadership style define the best of the new generation of church leaders.
One of the songs on the album, “Trust You Completely,” came about as Jonathan reflected on some of the attributes that David used to describe God in the Psalms. The song started in a co-write session with what eventually became the bridge melody and the lyrics quickly fell into place. Jonathan said, “As we wrote the verses out, the phrase ‘trust you completely’ felt like the perfect response for the chorus. This song was written in the Fall of 2019 and I had no idea at the time how instrumental it would be for us in 2020. It became an anthem for our church amidst the craziness and uncertainty of that year.”
