Jonathan Abdala serves as a missionary with the Church of the Nazarene in Spain on the Western Mediterranean field.
Jonathan grew up in Southern California, where he served with the NYI at the local and district level on various occasions. He is a graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University with an honors degree in Biology-Chemistry. During college, Jonathan grew in intimacy with God through intentional community, worship, service to others and study of creation from a scientific perspective. While on a PLNU LoveWorks mission trip to Portugal, he felt a call to serve in cross-cultural ministry.
Jonathan is passionate about community development and holistic care for all people. Through his Neuroscience research group at Loma Linda University, he has gained profound experience and insight on the significance of mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Jonathan will be working alongside non-governmental organizations, medical institutions and the Church of the Nazarene to help create safe and hospitable spaces for persons with disabilities.
Please pray for Jonathan as he prepares for service as Local Compassionate Ministries Coordinator and Church Growth Strategist for the Pelicano church of the Nazarene in the Spanish District of the West Mediterranean Field in Eurasia.
