Pastor Jonathan Baird grew up as a pastor's son in Scotland and Ireland. It was here that his passion for mission was born. He is married with three children and three grandchildren. For many years Jonathan worked with the less forunate in Canada and devoted his abilities to missionary and humanitarian work while attending a Spirit filled Baptist church. In 2005, the Lord changed his direction to become a full time Presbyterian minister and he now serves at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Peterborough Ontario. The Lord has combined his love of missionary work and teaching the Bible, in practical ways, into the ministry of 2nd Wave ministries.
