Ministry is a Journey, Not a Destination – Jonathan Barthalow – Ep 077

Jonathan Barthalow is lead pastor of Crosspoint Church in Waverly, Iowa. He holds a BA from Central Bible College and a Masters of Organizational Leadership from Evangel University. He and his wife, Erica Barthalow, have been childrens/youth/worship pastors, missionaries to India, Chi Alpha directors, and have now moved in to lead pastoring.

Jonathan and Erica have journeyed through many different seasons of life and have grown closer to God through each new challenge. This entire process has taught Jonathan that his identity isn’t primarily wrapped up in his ministry title, but instead in who he is a child of God. Listen as Jonathan shares life lessons, his heart for the lost, and discovers that ministry is a journey, not a destination.
