Jonathan Gallo’s greatest passion is to see the multiplication of discipleship-first churches that help new believers grow and mature into leaders who help others do the same. 

Jonathan grew up in Toronto’s multicultural neighborhoods, where he was exposed to various beliefs. Amid all the options, he reconfirmed his early faith while attending the University of Toronto and felt the call to full-time ministry.  He graduated from Elim Bible College in New York.

Over the past twenty years, Jonathan has pastored in churches of forty to four thousand in Canada and the United States.  He has planted a church, led as Executive Pastor, started non-profits, and served at a denominational level.  He has personally discipled hundreds of new believers and trained leaders to become effective in discipleship. He is the author of Growing Deeper: Disciple-Making Lessons for Living as a Follower of Jesus.

Jonathan and his wife, Gina, are parents to two wonderful girls in Orlando, Florida.
