Meet Pastor Jonathan
Jonathan Schallmo is the Pastor of Worship Ministry at Open Door Baptist Church. Born and raised in Syracuse, NY, Jonathan joined the church as a member with his wife and family in 2016.
Jonathan obtained his Bachelor of Music Education at Lee University and went on to study and receive his Master of Arts in Worship Studies and Leadership at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
Jonathan came to Open Door with years of experience leading worship in Virginia and North Carolina and considers it an ultimate blessing that God paved the way for his family to travel back to NY, bringing them close to their loved ones, to lead worship here.
Jonathan oversees, coordinates, and leads the choirs, adult bands, and orchestra, along with providing invaluable help with our graphics, video presentations, media, and more.
Jonathan loves being in the Rochester area with his wife, Lindsay, and their children. When he is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family. You’ll often find him reading, outside, out on the boat, fishing, golfing, or skiing.
One of Pastor Jonathan’s favorite verses is Matthew 5:6- “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
