Jonathan grew up as a Pastor's kid and was called to serve the youth as a young teenager. Already living on the West Coast, Jonathan saw the need for Jesus in the hearts of the people in his community. He graduated from MBU in 2007 with his B.S. in Church Ministries and Minored in Youth Ministries. Jonathan and his wife Lindsey have been married for 12 yrs. They have been greatly blessed with 3 children Wyatt (8), Everett (6), and Violette (3).
From the very beginning, in their 7 yrs of marriage, Jonathan and Lindsey have served in ministry together. San Diego is where it all began as Jonathan served his church as a youth pastor. Jonathan has a heart to see the next generation live a Jesus-filled life. He enjoys photography, graphic design, and woodworking. These are just a few of his talents.
Lindsey is a mother who adores her 3 children and is the secretary for FBCFH! Her and Jonathan both went to the same college and shared a class together and were introduced through a mutual friend. Lindsey served as a counselor and lifeguard at a church camp in the Mojave desert with Jonathan in 2006.
She has a desire for teens to know Jesus, after being a counselor and serving in their youth group alongside Jonathan as the youth pastor. Her mission is to breathe life into the people here through relationship building through everyday life. Lindsey enjoys photography, designing, and wellness.

Yolandea (Yo) Wood
Director of RR Community Garden
My gardening story starts a long time ago in a land far away, a young girl planted radishes under a tree and brought back a big bag full of collard greens. True. My family had a garden plot behind a community center. As an adult, I started planting in my backyard in a series of tubs and planters. Later I transitioned to my current 300 square feet of raised beds and blackberry fortress. My neighbors sometimes refer to me as the tomato lady, since I have been known to go door to door sharing my garden's bounty.
I didn't get here all by myself but through harvesting garden wisdom, ideas and knowledge from those that are willing to share and by helping in multiple gardens. Last year, I partnered with Restoration Ranch to establish a community garden. More space, more sunshine, more opportunity to feed the community. Now if you want the rest of the first story, please find me one day in the garden and I may share the rest of the story.
