Jonathan K. Dodson (M.Div, Th.M) founded City Life Church with his wife and a small group of people willing to take a risk for the kingdom of God. Jonathan is the author of "The Unbelievable Gospel: Say Something Worth Believing," "Gospel-Centered Discipleship" and "Raised? Finding Jesus by Doubting the Resurrection." He enjoys rowing, reading, writing, and playing with his kids.
