Jonathan Poitevint received his bachelor's degree in Biology from Bob Jones University in 2003. Shortly after graduation, he married Whitney, and joined the US Navy. During his 14 year career, he served in numerous capacities, with the majority being in Naval Aviation as a Naval Flight Officer on the E-2 Hawkeye. This chapter in the Navy blessed his family with 4 children, numerous moves, and many separations.
Growing up in a Christian home and attending Christian schools his entire life, Jonathan has broad exposure to Scripture and the doctrines of the church. However, in 2020, after years of turning away from God, he gave his life fully to God and experienced the indwelling of the Holy Spirit anew.
While 2020 was a challenging year for the entire world, it was a revolutionary one for the Poitevint household. God took hold of the family and drew the parent’s hearts to Himself, answering the prayers of many for reconciliation and salvation. 2020 found his crew moving from downtown Greenville, out to a farm in Travelers Rest. Currently, Jonathan is on staff at Hope Chapel and working the farm with the family and his in-laws.
Jonathan is the dad of four awesome kids: Canaan (a senior in high school), Lena (sophomore in high school), Taylor (8th grade), and Landon (6th grade). It is a great joy to see them grow in the knowledge of Truth!
It is a delight for Jonathan and Whitney to minister at Hope Chapel. It is with great gratitude they follow God as He allows them to minister to this group of people who prayed for the family for years.
