Jonathan, husband of Sharon Settel, father of six children; was born in Berlin, Germany and grew up in a traditional Jewish family in Washington, D.C. He studied music at the Inter American University of San German, Puerto Rico. For twenty years he was a vocalist in nightclubs, hotels, bars and cruise ships in the United States. In February of 1984, while employed by Walt Disney World, Jonathan had an "Encounter with Eternity". He became a Believer in Yeshua Ha Mashiach. (Jesus, the Messiah).
He was discipled for six years in a small church in Florida and was one of their worship leaders for their Erev Shabbat Service. In 1990, Jonathan responded to The Lord's call to make "Aliyah" (returned to his homeland, Israel), and moved his family to Jerusalem where he came to love and identify completely with the Israeli culture–and was fired up to "bring the Word forth from Zion". After a tremendous growth in Ministry, in June of 1996, he and his family then returned to the U.S. to fulfill the next part of God's plan for them.
Jonathan, along with his wife Sharon, their two daughters Ariella and Aviva and their son Amiel, now reside in Parkland, FL. After living in Israel for six years, one of their greatest desires is to lead groups to the Chosen Nation of Israel on an annual basis; to have people experience the Land through Jewish Eyes……….Through Yeshua's Eyes!
The time to live the unity of the Scriptures has arrived. Through the music of Settel International Ministries, both Gentiles and Jews can touch the Heart of God and feel the arms of Messiah Yeshua surround them.
This act alone brings us together and the special love of Messiah is the glue that will hold us together.
The anointing that knows no boundaries or status is a common denominator; the one place where we see more with our eyes closed, than with them opened. Welcome to the world of worship where we seek to bless The King.
