It is with great enthusiasm that Threshold Ministries announces the appointment of Jonathan Clarke as National Director!
A “preacher’s kid” from Johannesburg South Africa, (his father was an Anglican Priest in the Diocese of Johannesburg) Jonathan and his wife, Kathy immigrated to Canada in 2002, with their two children. “We were not followers of Jesus at the time. We attended an Alpha course, within 2 months of arriving in Canada, and made a commitment to follow Jesus on the Holy Spirit weekend of that course,” Jonathan explains. In the years following, the growth and discipleship he experienced led to a decision, in 2007, to move to New Brunswick with his family and attend college at Threshold Ministries. Jonathan was commissioned as an Evangelist in 2009.
“It has been amazing to see how God has worked in the lives of many people over the last 9 years. I am truly humbled and understand what Jesus meant when He said, in John 15:5, ‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.’ Ministry is hard work, but loads of fun and very rewarding!”
As National Director, Jonathan will provide leadership and oversight of the overall ministry of Threshold Ministries and its projects. With a solid background in church leadership, Jonathan brings a wealth of experience, passion and fresh vision for uniting and equipping individuals for ministry. In the same way, Threshold Ministries remains committed to the same goal established in 1929, of raising up, equipping and commissioning Evangelists to help spread the Good News of Jesus.
Commenting on his new appointment, Jonathan says “I am excited about what God has in store for Threshold Ministries, as we work to live out the key mission statement ‘to help bring people from all walks of life into a living relationship with Jesus Christ and His people.” I love what Threshold Ministries stands for; I love people, I love serving; I love the poor, marginalized and downtrodden. This is where my heart is. God has shown me the first step and I am excited to see what God is going to do through Threshold Ministries.
Jonathan will assume his new role as National Director of Threshold Ministries on July 1st, 2018. The Board of Directors and National Office staff are enthusiastic about working alongside Jonathan to continue to go further and deeper in the pursuit of sharing the gospel, all across Canada.
