Acts 2:38-39 NKJV “Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
About The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship Church
The Potters House Christian Fellowship Church, founded in Prescott, Arizona, is a worldwide fellowship of churches that are reaching the world for Jesus Christ. Since 1973 when the first couple was sent out from Prescott to pioneer a new church, our Fellowship has grown to more than 2,100 churches located in 117 countries.
This work of God started with the desire of Pastor Wayman Mitchell (Senior Pastor of the Potter’s House Christian Church in Prescott, Arizona) to put into practice the principles of discipleship, evangelism and church planting.
About the Pastor
Pastor Jonathan Lobato was born in Globe, Arizona in 1987; the very same hospital that his father was born in 35 years prior. This small copper mining town just 2 hours south east of Phoenix was where his parents, Louie and Teresa Lobato, met each other and home to the church where his parents also met Jesus Christ. After serving God for 20 years as both servant and pastor, Louie and his wife made his way to a small church plant in Bullhead City, AZ. The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship Church of Bullhead City was one of the first 5 Potter’s Houses ever planted from the Potter’s House Fellowship’s main church in Prescott, Arizona.
Jonathan grew up in Bullhead where his father Louie Sr was full time pastor of the growing church and Teresa was the church secretary and keyboard player for worship. All of the Lobato kids enjoyed music and each one selected an instrument to learn. It was a very musical church with live music outreaches every Saturday night in which classic rock bands played live and between songs there were Christian dramas and testimonies of how the church members got saved and changed by Jesus Christ. Jonathan’s parents still pastor the church in Bullhead City, Arizona and have raised and sent out all four of their children into the ministry of the Gospel.
Jonathan wed Lauren in the Bullhead Church on March 20th, 2011 before all their friends and family, and before their Savior, Jesus Christ. Together, they began serving as the new youth leaders and growing into other leadership positions within the church as they set their hearts on God’s will for their lives. 5 years after marriage, they reached their dream to be sent out into the harvest and start a new church. God led them to Denton, Texas and has been confirming His plan for them here since they arrived in October, 2016.
Serving God has been the most secure facet of our lives and the most exciting adventure that could be taken. Wherever your life story is at the moment, let Jesus come into the pages before your story comes to an end.
