Pastor Jonathan Smith was a worship leader at New Hope Leeward. He also led, and played on worship teams at other churches. Pastor Jon lost his battle with cancer a couple of weeks ago, and went home to be with Jesus. This afternoon, our church will gather to celebrate his life. He will be missed here, but I'll get to see him in Heaven.
He was a friend, and co-worker, as well as a great man and great guitarist. He considered me a part of the worship team, even though I don't sing nor play a musical instrument, but because I shot hand-held video camera on stage; and always wanted to include me in the worship team prayer huddles.
