"In my former role as National Director for Catch the Fire USA, Jonathan and I ministered together both nationally and internationally in church, conference and missionary settings. Jonathan has a powerful teaching gift that is coupled with an accurate and sensitive prophetic discernment.
I’ve witnessed the personal and corporate breakthroughs that came as a result of Jonathan’s ministry. If you are hungry for personal or corporate advancement then I highly recommend Jonathan's teaching and ministry."

Jonathan also has the distinct priviledge of being the spiritual grandson of Harald Bredesen, a precious saint who, other than Billy Graham, has ministered the Gospel to more heads-of-state than anyone in the 20th century.

Jonathan was raised in the Church and has a very eclectic church background, at one-time-or-another being a part of all facets of the Church spectrum. He has been a part of house-churches, local churches, mega-churches, revival/renewal churches, and organic churches, as well as church planting and pastoring. He also has a background in corporate business and consulting as well as running several businesses of his own. At one point he left the corporate world to become an inner-city missionary where he lived among and ministered to the poor and homeless. While there, he met his wife, Jessy.
One highlight of his ministry was when he had the honor (reluctantly at first) of plowing, preparing, and then leading an outpouring of God within a youth ministry which then turned into a five-year revival where entire unchurched families were saved, backslidden families recommitted, healings of incurable diseases, miracles, and angelic visitations, as well as an outpouring of musical/songwriting talents and abilities which affected the entire church with new life, occurred.
Jonathan has traveled nationally and internationally ministering the Gospel and strengthening believers and churches wherever he goes. He currently serves as an itinerant minister, conference speaker, author, & businessman.
Jonathan & Jessica Derrick Mathe
The one word that best describes the heart and focus of their ministry is FULLNESS. First and foremost, they are a son & daughter of their Heavenly Father, lovers of the Holy Spirit, and radical followers of Jesus Christ. Their style of ministry is direct, real, transparent, relateable, and results driven. Spirit & Truth Schools are the teaching and equipping outreach of their ministry, Renaissance Roar, an equipping ministry called to promote revival, reformation, & awakening that results in long-term, sustainable transformation of people, churches, cities, and nations.
They have a Jeremiah ministry; "To root out and to pull down, to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant." In order to support further, greater Kingdom growth; proper, strong, and level foundations must be laid. Many times, if improper foundations exist (unbiblical thinking, doctrine, experiences) then those foundations must be shaken and removed in order for the Lord to build a correct foundation, or wineskin, in order to facilitate what He wants to do that is "exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask or imagine".
Jonathan & Jessy reside with their two children, Justus & Josie, in Southern California.
