Pastor Jonathan Bonar- Senior Pastor

Pastor Jonathan joined the Pleasant Grove family in July of 2020.  With over 25 years of pastoral ministry experience, he combines a wealth of wisdom as a pastor to pastors with passionate and inspiring teaching as an engaging communicator.   While he has served in key leadership at some of the largest churches in the U.S., he and his wife are so happy to be called to Owensboro, Kentucky.  He has graduated with both a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies and a Master's Degree in Ministry and Leadership from Liberty University and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, where he served on the Board of the Center for Ministry and Training.  It was also here that he served as Assistant to the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr. and met his wife, Cathryn.  He is currently completing his Doctorate in Ministry.  

Jonathan and his wife, Cathryn, have three children: Shay, Jonathan Jr. and Logan.  As a family, they love to serve God and love people.  They feel that God has called them to the people of Pleasant Grove and Daviess County and they couldn't be happier to call this place home!  They would love to welcome you home to Pleasant Grove, should you choose to visit with us!
