Jonathan Cleveland

Executive Pastor

What do you do at Pulpit Rock?
I’m the Executive Pastor – which means I manage our staff team – I work with them to lead our ministries and the operational side of Pulpit Rock – and I preach and help shepherd the congregation.

What did you do before you joined our staff?
I was a young adult pastor at a church in Tucson, Arizona.

An interesting thing about you is…
I had a speaking role in a nationally aired TV commercial for the University of Northern Colorado. I said: “I can talk to my professors.”  Some said I delivered the line like a young Morgan Freeman… but I failed to win any awards for my part.

I spent a summer living in Hangzhou China – I attended the Hangzhou University and tried to learn Chinese. My crowning achievement that summer was learning how to say the phrase “I eat panda meat” in Chinese… apparently this is offensive and you shouldn’t say it.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I spend a lot of time with friends. I like Crossfit. I’m kind of a foodie. I listen to a lot of music. Right now I can’t stop listening to John Moreland and Penny & Sparrow.
