Jonathan Dellinger was born in New Castle, Indiana in April, 1994. He had the blessing of being raised in a Christian home by parents who were faithful in their church; he is the third generation of his family to be a part of the Temple Baptist Church in New Castle. While attending this church, Jonathan accepted Christ as his Saviour when he was six years old.
Bro. Jonathan surrendered to the Lord’s will as a young teenager but did not feel called to serve the Lord in full-time Gospel ministry until his senior year of high school.
Bro. Jonathan attended Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Studies. During the summers of his college years, Jonathan had the privilege to be involved in practical ministry internships. It was during a 2014 internship that he first met Pastor Giordano, and they remained in close contact.
Upon graduation, Bro. Jonathan became the youth director of a small church in Indiana. It was during this time that he met his future wife, Hannah Pitman. Ms. Hannah was raised in a pastor’s home and accepted Christ as her Saviour when she was seven years old. Ms. Hannah graduated valedictorian of the class of 2016 from Providence Baptist College with a degree in elementary education. When she met Jonathan, she was teaching at Grace Baptist Christian School in Plymouth, Indiana. Six months after their relationship began, Jonathan and Hannah were happily engaged.
Throughout this time, Pastor Giordano and Bro. Jonathan had been prayerfully considering the possibility of his coming to serve at Trinity Baptist Church. When the Lord opened the door, Bro. Jonathan moved to Texas and joined the staff in January, 2018. In July of that year, Jonathan and Hannah were married, and they are now serving the Lord together at Trinity Baptist Church.
Ms. Hannah serves alongside her husband in the youth department. She is also involved in the music ministry of our church. The Dellingers are honored to serve the Lord in Grand Prairie, Texas, and are excited about how the Lord will work in the coming years.
