Jonathan Anderson



Jonathan Anderson loves Jesus, his family and the church. He is a husband of one and father of two, and their love is evidenced by their laughing at his jokes... sometimes. The Andersons are originally from the St. John’s area, and have been a part of Calvary since 2014, when they returned from a few years in the UK. Jon is an Engineering professor by day (and by night!), and became an elder at Calvary in 2020.
