Jonathan Martin is a sacramental hillbilly Pentecostal mystic. He is the author How to Survive a Shipwreck and Prototype. He serves as teaching pastor at Sanctuary Church in Tulsa, OK, where he now resides. He is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University, has an MA from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary, and a ThM from Duke University. He founded Renovatus Church in Charlotte, NC, which he led for 8 years. He is a product of the “Christ-haunted landscape” of the American south, sweaty revivals, and hip-hop. Years before a life of church planting, writing, and preaching, his claim to fame was getting his Aquaman, Robin and Wonder Woman action figures saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost at an early age.
Shipwreck Songs and Stories
We are so rarely given space for loss, grief, and lament, room to expose our deepest wounds before God and others. This session is all about creating such a space. As Jonathan Martin and Ben Kilgore share the poetry and pain of their own stories of death and resurrection, we hope to make room for your own, too.
