Jonathan has been Lead Pastor at The Met since 2016. A native of Toronto, Jonathan lived in the UK for many years, where he most recently served on the staff of the Proclamation Trust in London. He studied theology at the University of Oxford and holds a PhD in New Testament studies from the University of Cambridge. He is the author of a number of books, including Hebrews and Divine Speech (Bloomsbury T&T Clark, 2014), Teaching 2 Timothy (Christian Focus, 2014), and Preaching in the New Testament (IVP, 2017). Jonathan is deeply committed to expository preaching and loves to train and mentor others in Word ministry. He serves on the council of The Gospel Coalition Canada. Jonathan and his wife, Gemma, have three children and live on the south side of Ottawa. Having moved from the UK, they are learning to embrace Ottawa’s cold winters and wonderful (if mosquito-filled!) summers. When not playing with the children or taming the garden, Jonathan likes to keep up to date with current events – particularly politics and economics.

The Glorious Gospel • July 1, 2018 • Dwayne Cline
When I stood in the back yard of the home I grew up in all I could see was forest and field. Country stretched before me for as long as I could see. Never did I expect or imagine that God would call me to minister at a church in the heart of the city. God has a heart for the city. The city is alive with various cultures, languages and people groups. The poor live in the heart of the city. God has called His people to love the city. I have had the privilege of pastoring at Hughson St since they called me to serve here on January 1, 1995. God has provided me with a wonderful wife and ministry partner, Aimee. We are blessed with four beautiful children named Ethan, Abby, Jewel and Ivy. When I look out my back yard today I see the city and hear God's voice calling me to love the people in our city.
