Jonathan Lewis was born in Argentina as one of eight children, and is a third generation missionary. He and his wife Dawn served as missionaries from 1976-1997 in Honduras, Peru, Mexico and Argentina. The development of ministry training resources and programs has been the predominant thread in the Lewis’ ministry. With a vision to support and train those involved in the emerging missions movement in Latin America, they developed the World Mission course in Spanish, first published in Argentina in 1986. Jon and Dawn spent much of the following years in Argentina with their four children, promoting missionary training, serving the COMIBAM missions movement, and helping establish the Center for Cross-Cultural Missionary Training (CCMT) in Cordoba. Jon also pursued studies in Human Resource Development and was awarded a Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 1992. From 1992-2006, Jon served as a staff member of the World Evangelical Alliance Missions Commission. For five of those years, the Lewises lived in Canada and helped develop the Gateway Missionary Training Centre, while Jon also initiated the ACTS Intercultural Ministry Centre at Trinity Western University and taught in their cross-cultural ministries program. He continues with his commitment to missionary training, working with International Missionary Training Network. Jon and Dawn live in Ferndale, Washington, USA, and enjoy the outdoors.
