Lead Pastor
Pastor Jonathan Kaushal came to us from Chicago, and is married to first lady Crystal Kaushal who is an Iowa native. Pastor Kaushal completed his undergraduate studies at Hyles Anderson College and went on to Seminary at Pensacola Christian College where he earned an M.Div. Following that and sensing the Lord’s urging he went on the Dallas Theological Seminary and earned an S.T.M. Upon graduation from DTS, Pastor Kaushal began his pastoral ministry to rural churches in PA, IL, and here in IA since 2017. Pastor Kaushal recently also graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with his Th.M. and Ph.D. in Biblical Studies. He believes in continual learning and being challenged, and can rightly be called our Teaching-Pastor. We are excited to see how the Great Shepherd leads us through our under-shepherd in the years ahead!
