In 1991, on his way home from the Upper Room Church of God in California, Jonathan received an open vision of dozens of people running to an altar for salvation as he preached. Nine months later, that vision was fulfilled in the church he planted in Kustendil, Bulgaria. Since that time, he has served as a missionary pioneer in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
The Augustines have planted a church in each of the countries they have served as missionaries, Bulgaria, 1991, and Czech Republic, 2003. In addition, they planted a Bible college, the Bulgarian Theological College in 1997, and a ministry to homeless street children called Samaritans in 1998. While planting the church in Prague, Jonathan, Daniela, and Josiah Augustine founded a coffee shop outreach, DayStar Café, 2006, and a family center, Palecek, 2006.
Jonathan has served as a regional superintendent since 2003, and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Vanguard University 1990, a Master of Divinity from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary 1995, and a Doctor in Ministry from Drew University 2008.
