Ambassadors520 is a ministry of Living Oaks Church that is concerned with equipping everyday followers of Jesus Christ with knowledge and tools to make a defense for the hope they have. We seek to train Christians to think clearly and make an intellectually honest, gracious, and incisive defense of the Christian worldview in the public square, going beyond Sunday mornings and the comfort of our local church body. We do this through our blog as well as our weekly meetings at Living Oaks Church in Newbury park, CA. .
2 Corinthians 5:20
“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
A520 meets at Living Oaks Church in Newbury Park, CA every Wednesday night from 7:00PM to 8:30PM in the 975 Building at LOC.
Jonathan grew up in Plymouth, MA and attended American University in Washington, DC where he studied criminal justice. In 2013 he earned a masters degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University, graduating with honors. Jon brings a unique perspective to LOCC having worked in the legal field for ten years before entering full time ministry. Perhaps what's more though is that Jon spent the majority of his life as an atheist, arguing against the existence of God. Due to his past Jonathan is passionate about evangelism and sharing the gospel message. He is now a pastor at Living Oaks Church in Newbury Park, CA where he lives with his wife and three daughters.
