Jonathan Botello was born and raised in Austin, Texas. As a young child he would accompany his grandfather to churches and learned the ropes of preaching the gospel and telling lost souls about Jesus. As time went by, the Lord used Pastor Jonathan by giving him the talent to play instruments. He and Pastor Botello would sing at churches, nursing homes, and funerals wherever the Lord sent them. For over ten years Pastor Jonathan was a member of El Buen Pastor A/G where he learned a lot from Pastor Francisco Colop. After Pastor Botello was diagnosed with bone cancer, Pastor Jonathan felt led by the Lord to join House of the Living God and become a permanent member. As Pastor Botello's treatment increased, the Lord called Pastor Jonathan to the ministry and he began to teach the Sunday School lessons. In April 2011 he officially became the Co-Pastor at House of the Living God and in 2014 after the passing of Senior Pastor Domingo Botello he became the Pastor of House of the Living God.
In 2013 Pastor Jonathan learned of the Message of the Cross through Sonlife Broadcasting Network. Since then he has learned, preached, and taught the Narrow Way of Christ and Him Crucified. Pointing all to Calvary's Cross!
Pastor Jonathan has been married to his wonderful wife Kimberly since December 2010. They have three beautiful children.
"For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." - 1 Corinthians 2:2
Domingo Botello was born and raised in Beeville, Texas in 1945. He was brought up in a Christian based home but decided "religon" was not for him. After years of battling with drugs and alcohol addictions a man named Jack Allen wittness to him and invited him to church. That Wednesday night he took a step of Faith and made the decision to surrender his life over to the Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Botello was a missonary to Mexico for over 25 years and evangelized all over the great state of Texas for over 35 years. Finally, after years of traveling and preaching the gospel, the Lord called Pastor Botello to start his own church in 2006. In 2010 he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of bone cancer, and the battle began. After extensive chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant the cancer went into remission, but it was not until August of 2011 when the pain permanently left his bones.
In March of 2014 Pastor Botello was called Home to Heaven, we know he is with Jesus and we will one day meet again. In his final days he asked that we continue to go forward preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is no longer here on earth but his legacy and desire of winning souls to the Lord continues on. He keep the Faith and finished the course!
"Jesus Christ is the Answer, don't let the Devil deceive you!"
