Jonathan St. Jacques

He has been a member of Newtown Bible Church since 2012 and got involved with music ministry at nearly the same time.
Jon expresses his heart’s desire in this way. "The purpose of music at NBC is to put the glory and beauty of God on display, aiding the expression of delight and praise in the hearts of God’s people, building up and encouraging the saints in truth, renewing their minds, and witnessing to the world––in the power of the Spirit––the worthiness of God and all that He is for us in Christ."
Jon’s wife Heidi, plays a very special and important role in the music ministry alongside Jon. Jon and Heidi have been blessed with five precious children and live in New Milford, CT.
