Associate priest Fr. Jonathon Wylie joined the St. Augustine’s community in the fall of 2018 when he and his wife (Meghan) moved to Columbus so that Meghan could attend graduate school at OSU. When Meghan graduated in 2019, they moved to Huntington, WV, where Fr. Jonathon serves as a high school Humanities and Bible teacher in a classical Christian school and where Meghan works as a speech-language pathologist. The three-hour drive between Huntington and Westerville is hardly enough to prevail against Fr. Jonathon’s affection for St. Augustine’s and the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word, and so he continues to travel to Westerville about once per month to preach, celebrate the Eucharist, and visit this cherished flock. In West Virginia, Fr. Jonathon also serves as an assisting priest at Hope Anglican Church in Charleston, WV.
Fr. Jonathon has a B.A. in Ancient Languages and Biblical Archaeology from Wheaton College and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He was ordained a deacon in May 2019 and a priest in September 2020. He enjoys preaching and teaching, and he desires to serve the Church as both a pastor and scholar. In his spare time, he loves to read old books, conduct research on the Bible, write, run, bake (and eat!) anything sourdough, and (most of all) spend time with his beloved wife and their baby daughter, Lydia Shalom.
