Maximizing Outreach: Strategies for Engaging and Reaching Community

Minister Jonathan W. Morrison loves the Lord and is humbled to be a servant in the Kingdom of God.  He is the son of Dr. W.W. Morrison, retired minister of the 6th Ave Church of Christ in Mineral Wells, TX, and Anne Morrison. He is married to his lovely wife, Lataria, or “Sha.”  They are blessed to have four beautiful children; Jostyn, Jensyn, Juliyn, and Jiliyn.

He is a proud graduate of Amberton University, The University of Texas at Arlington, and Southwestern Christian College.  Shortly after completing his matriculation at Southwestern Christian College, Jonathan was appointed Dean of Men and continued to serve in this capacity until 2017.

He is privileged to have been shaped under the influence of a number of great gospel ministers including his father, Dr. W.W. Morrison, Minister of the 6th Ave Church of Christ, for over twelve years; Dr. David Lane, Resident Retired Minister of the Marsalis Avenue Church of Christ, Dallas, TX, for over six years; and the late Dr. Eugene Lawton, of the Newark Church of Christ in Newark, NJ.

Prior to his call to Cedar Crest, he briefly served as Minister of the West End Church of Christ (Terrell, TX), and as Associate Minister of the Marsalis Avenue Church of Christ (Dallas, TX).  Since April of 2010, he has faithfully served as Ministering Evangelist for the Cedar Crest Church of Christ in Dallas, TX.  There, he is actively engaged in ministry that emphasizes saving the lost, strengthening the saved, and serving the community.

Beyond local ministry and organizing, Jonathan is humbled to serve yearly throughout the country in various capacities. When he is not working, he can be found enjoying his family, listening to music, watching a movie, attending sporting events, or watching his favorite network cable news channels.
