Jonathan Fulcher

Jonathan has been a bi-vocational youth pastor in the surrounding areas for the past seven years. He has been involved with FCA all throughout his time as a youth pastor and was also involved as an athlete in high school. The Lord pressed upon Jonathan’s heart back in November of 2014 that it was time for him to step out in faith and start looking for a full time ministry position. After much prayer and seeking the direction of the Lord he joined our FCA staff full time in June of 2015.

Jonathan graduated from Enterprise high school in 2004 and attended MCC some years later, all while pursuing the Lord’s calling upon his life and taking online classes for Ministry Licensure.
