Evangelist & Director
Evangelist Jonathan Conrathe is the Founder and Director of Mission24 which encompasses "LifeLink".
Jonathan has seen in excess of 250,000 people come to Jesus Christ over the last 32 years in 52 countries, and 1000’s of believers from various denominations and networks, equipped to minister the Gospel with signs following. The Lord continues to faithfully confirm His Word with regular healings, miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Early Years
During his teenage years at school, Jonathan and his brother led over 60 of the boys to Christ, some of whom are in the ministry today. Travelling to and from school by train he would challenge the commuters with the Gospel, a number of whom received Jesus, often as a result of healing prayer. At the age of 17, when considering his future career, Jonathan had a vision of the Cross of Christ during the night and knew the Lord was commissioning him to preach the Gospel.
The Ministry was established in 1994 following a training period of seven years with Evangelist Don Double of Good News Crusade, where Jonathan served as a trainee evangelist and worship leader. The fruit of his ministry has been seen, not only in the salvation of tens of thousands responding to the Gospel, but also in the planting of new churches in Uganda (23), Tanzania (3), South Africa (1), Mexico (several house churches), UK (1), Philippines (2), France (1), Ukraine (2), and India.
Mission24: An Enlarged Vision
In 2008, alongside his evangelistic ministry, Jonathan felt a prompting from the Lord to give more emphasis to training and raising up local church based mission teams around the world, with a vision to multiply effective workers in the Gospel and thus help churches in the task of winning the nations for Christ. With this in mind, Mission24 was born as a means of equipping the local church, facilitating the work of mission, and providing a forum for the recognition and release of a new generation of evangelists. The ultimate intention of the vision is that there will come a day when in any 24 hour period, there will be a mission team out somewhere in the globe winning the world to Christ!
Jonathan is sent out with the prayer backing of Kingsgate Community Church, Peterborough, his home church, and is a partner member of the Groundlevel Network of churches and ministries. Jonathan ministers widely in missions around the world, as well as to churches and leaders across a variety of denominations and networks around the UK and overseas.
He is also a broadcaster on UCB radio and an author of several books including “Radical Christianity”, and “The Power Partnership.” He is happily married to Elaine, with three boys, Nathan, Josh and Ben.”
