Jonathan Scarpuzzi was born in Columbia South Carolina. He was raised in Chicago where he and his three sisters were homeschooled by their Mom, until 9th grade. He made the decision to make the switch to public high school for the opportunity to play football (OLB) at Downers Grove South. Football was his life as he desired to play football in College until he tore his ACL during his senior session at DGS.
He graduated with honors from Downers Grove South and after a year off, he attended Moody Bible Institute in Spokane. After a crazy four years in Spokane (too much to put down in this section) he graduated from MBI with a Bachelors of Science in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Youth Ministry, with honors.
Jonathan has pastored in several different churches over the past 8 years. Ranging from a Urban, Rural and Suburban context, as a Youth, Student and Worship Pastor. He has been involved in two church plants, overseas missions and cross-cultural ministry.
Jonathan still loves sports and as you could have guessed, he loves his Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls and of course most of all his Chicago Bears!
