Jonathan Cox

Associate Pastor of Worship and Media

Jonathan has loved worship ever since childhood.  Being a pastor’s kid, and also a son to musical parents, he has always been around music and the church. He led worship for 17 years in North Carolina and is passionate about helping others enter into Heaven's gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Throughout the years of serving in the church, he has developed a great love for people and lending a hand wherever it was needed. Here at Green Lake Calvary Church, he leads worship, runs our social media and online presence, heads our Journey Groups, teaches our Young Married's Sunday School class, and Wednesday night Iron Man Bible Study ministries.

Jonathan and his wife Gabriella live in Kalamazoo with their two daughters, Ava and Addison. He loves fishing, shooting, playing music, watching movies, drinking coffee and eating wonderful food!
