Jonathan Henderson has served as a pastor for 25 years, sharing the gospel locally and globally. He started preaching at the age of 15. After graduating from Pacific Union College with a BA in Theology, Jonathan began his professional ministry at PUC as their outreach minister in 1998. A few years later, he transitioned to the Campus Hill Church in Loma Linda, CA, where he lead a Friday night multicultural worship service that grew from 40 to 500 regular attendees.
In 2003 Jonathan accepted the call to be the lead pastor at the Grand Advent Church in Oakland, CA, seeing the congregation grow from 25 to 400, consisting mostly of young adults. The church had a thriving ministry focused on helping the homeless population in Oakland. Jonathan returned to PUC to be their lead chaplain in 2014. After completing his fourth year there, he moved back to the local church—Vallejo Central Church in the Bay Area, California—where he currently serves as the senior pastor.
Jonathan is the author of the book Worth Every Drop: God’s Relentless Pursuit to Prove You Matter, which is the second edition of the book released in 2021, and is available in the formats of physical, digital, and audio, through Amazon, Apple and other bookstores. Jonathan’s main focus in ministry is to help people understand their worth and purpose by knowing God and experiencing a lasting relationship with their Him.
