Jonathan Edward Wilson

Served as a missionary to Japan from 1989 in church planting working as a supporting missionary and pastor for three church plants with Tokyo Horizon Chapel and then as the founding pastor of Grace Christian Fellowship in Ome, Tokyo, Japan.

Ministry has been centered on expository preaching of the word of God, heartfelt contemporary worship, an emphasis on grace and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Following that leading, we have focussed our outreach in two areas; children and compassion ministries. Grace Christian Fellowship is known for innovative children's programs, events and outreaches and a grace-centered learning environment at Grace Christian International School. We also reach out to our community through a food bank "Manna" that shares needed groceries with families through local churches in our area.

Flowing out of these two areas of ministry are two larger programs that have impacted the church in Japan as a whole and now the rest of Asia. One is CRASH Japan, (Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope) that networks local churches and the global church to bring relief to those in disasters. CRASH Japan has responded to many disasters in Japan, but became an independent non-profit organization after the 2011 tsunami.

OperationSAFE is a program that combines both of our strengths, children's ministry and disaster relief into a child trauma resilience program that can be used by churches serving children after natural and man-made disasters.

Hi Jonathan,

I posted a response to your triangulation query in G2G and noticed that we are distant cousins. Just for giggles and grins, I checked on GEDmatch and although we do not match using the default threshold, I see a 6.1 cm match on chr 16 that is next to a 5.4 cm match on the same chr with a total of 11.4 cM for all 3 cm and greater matches. This was using my Living DNA results RM7102686 (my Ancestry and 23andMe results did not match as well). Where did you test?

Thanks Jonathan for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

Because Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within a project coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches dates of profile, avoid abbreviations, add sources with citations & links for sources to support the data. From wiki ID go to Research to find sources

The United States Project would be of interest. Adding the tag UNITED_STATES will connect you

There is another James Wilson, bn 1788, that was in the War of 1812 - bn in Rowan County, NC. In 1850, he is in Jackson, GA, with a daughter Virginia, bn in GA.

Marries a Peggy Green in 1807.

The only problem with the birthdate of James Wilson as 1788 is that he was married in 1794...?

Maybe there are two James Wilson's in the same time frame thereabouts? All indications for James Irvine Wilson say S. Carolina - 1773. The 1830 census says bet 50 -59 indicating in or before 1780. US and International Marriage records say 1773. 1850 Census says 77 years old = 1773.
