Where Passion and Action Meet
Local County Partnerships
With over a decade of serving in rural Virginia nonprofits, Jonathan was instrumental in the formation of a number of local and regional partnerships between various agencies and organizations. One example is an initiative that includes the creation of a grant funded database where churches, businesses and nonprofits in two counties could record and track the disbursement of benevolence and assistance funds to clients. Jonathan also helped create a mobile food pantry network that served 1,500 clients per year in five locations, and was instrumental in advocating for county and town ordinances to be amended in order to allow for the opening of a winter shelter for rural homeless neighbors. After the tragic shooting at the Mother Immanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., Jonathan worked with BIPOC pastors in the county to host a series of open discussion forums around confronting systemic racism in the local culture.
Virginia’s Opioid Crisis
From 2018-2020, Jonathan co-chaired the Middle Peninsula Opioid and Heroin Task force in Virginia’s 98th Legislative District, and helped lead a statewide effort to raise awareness and engagement regarding addiction and recovery among houses of worship across the Commonwealth. In partnering with Virginia’s State Legislature, Jonathan launched a statewide initiative called Recovery Sunday, encouraging and equipping every church in the state to have a recovery focus Sunday once a year. In this capacity, Jonathan has provided testimony before Virginia House and Senate Committees, and written policy briefs for diverse stakeholders from across the state.
Religious liberty means liberty for people of all faiths and no faith. Jonathan has served as a major advocate for religious liberty and freedom at the state and national level. Representing more than 1,400 churches across Virginia, Jonathan gave expert testimony before numerous Virginia House and Senate Committees regarding bills with religious liberty impacts. Jonathan also led the largest Protestant body in Virginia to launch a statewide religious liberty advocacy day at the state capitol. Additionally, Jonathan was a panelist at the Third National Baptist-Muslim Dialogue in 2018, which focused on religious liberty and freedom for all people. In 2019, Jonathan was invited to participate in A Forum On Pastoral Leadership In A Politicized Culture at Harvard University. He continues to support religious freedom by regularly speaking out against Christian Nationalism, which is a danger to democracy.
The Davis Family
More than anything, Jonathan cherishes family. He is married to his college sweetheart, Audrey Davis, who is a dedicated mother and wife, and a gifted minister and chaplain. Jonathan and Audrey have three children. Jonathan’s hobbies include songwriting and singing, gardening, cooking, and enjoying great coffee.
