About Us


Rev. Jonathan Hood

Jonathan, a Northeast native, and his wife Erica eagerly anticipate all that the Lord will do as they work to introduce Syracusans to Christ and to Christ’s church.

Jonathan earned a Bachelor in Biology at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and, then, worked as a systems biologist for several years. When he wasn’t thinking about science, he served the church in teaching and discipleship, and the Lord started to plant the seeds of pastoral ministry in Jonathan’s heart. In 2010, Jonathan prayerfully moved to Charlotte, NC to pursue a Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary. He has been recommended as a church planter by Mission to North America and has been called as an evangelist of the New York State Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America.

Jonathan and Erica have been married for a decade and have three young daughters, Aeryn, Claire and Emma. Erica loves the arts and is a freelance graphic designer.
