“Jonas is fantastic. I was playing with Bebo Norman on a tour up in the New England area and got to play a handful of shows with Jonas… I was blown away. His songs are amazing, and the way he connected with the audience really impressed me. Getting to hang with him several times since then has shown me that more than an amazing songwriter and performer Jonas is a man after God’s heart. His life reflects what he sings about and that inspires me. Do yourself a favor and check out his music… you’re gonna love it.”
Matt Gilder – Keyboardist for Chris Tomlin
“I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Jonas when his band, Farewell June, toured with Petra. It is great to know there are talented people out there like Jonas, who have integrity on and off the stage. He is a great friend and a great Brother!”
Bob Hartman – PETRA
“We have booked Jonas at least a half-dozen times over the years and plan to book him again in the future. He has played in a variety of settings for us and always does an outstanding job. He is great to work with, puts on a fantastic show and most importantly, he genuinely loves the Lord. Our church has booked a lot of artists and a lot of big names over the years, but there is no one we keep bringing back like we do Jonas.”
Pastor Luke Brugger – Centerbranch Assembly of God, Clarksburg, WV
“Playing guitar on the Jonas Woods album was not only fun but a highlight of my year. The songs are extremely well crafted, have a timeless quality and the other musicians on the album some of the most stellar in Nashville”
“We have had the privilege of hosting Jonas to lead worship and play several special events this past year at Waters Church. He brings not only an incredible musical talent but a great message and heart for the Lord. People respond to his sincerity. He has quickly become a favorite guest by our church family.”
Mike L., Waters Church – North Attleboro, MA
“I booked Jonas Woods for a performance at our church a couple of months ago. It was a pleasure working with him and his team. They were professional, low maintenance and easy-going. The entire church greatly enjoyed his performance and ministry. The quality and professionalism of his performance exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend him and look forward to having him come back soon.”
Christina Kurtz – Special Events Director, CrossPoint Christian Church, North Oxford, MA
“I first heard of Jonas when he was a student at Evangel University. He was very popular, singing in chapel and at student events on a regular basis. After graduation, I had the opportunity to get to know him, and it was cool to see him grow as a minister, not just a performer. We brought his band back to campus several times. In fact, the Homecoming concert with Farewell June in 2007 was a blast, easily my favorite of the past ten years. We were so pleased with their presentation, I was able to secure some funding so that the band represented Evangel as they toured the country.
Now Jonas is touring solo, and I recommend him highly for any and all settings, except perhaps retirement homes. But he is so charming, the old ladies will probably love him, too.”
Paul K. Logsdon M.A. – Director of Public Relations & Publications, Evangel University
“It has been my privilege to get to know Jonas Woods, and experience his gifting and ministry over the last several years. I first heard Jonas when he was leading Farewell June on the 1939 tour. I have been a ‘gig’ musician for over three decades, and a church bassist for over 20 years, and I was absolutely impressed with both the musicianship and professionalism displayed that first evening. They truly blew me away! Jonas brought his band across the country again in support of the Identity Crisis album. Once again, Jonas and his band treated our congregation with courtesy and gratitude. We were more than happy to have them in our church for the Saturday evening concert, and again to lead Sunday morning worship.
Most recently, Jonas visited our church as a solo artist, and it was this visit that gave me insight into the man. He had no lights, no backing band. Just his guitar and his songs and his testimony. Hearing Jonas tell the stories behind his songs made me appreciate his ministry all over again. On Sunday morning, he used our worship team as a backing band, and was a joy to work with.
I could not more highly commend and endorse Jonas Woods.”
Chris Bloniarz – The Dalles, Oregon
“Jonas is the man! When I met Jonas he was one of my clients needing a photo shoot. But we ended up being great friends. The reason? Jonas is a person who understands that there’s more to this life then what we see. He ?understands he has a purpose and a mission in life and he’s doing it. He is here to be Christ like. I guess what I’m trying to say is this. Jonas isn’t here to play for his own cause. He’s here to do what God called him to do play music and serve others that Christ might be glorified.
God has used Jonas in my life in so many ways. He has become one of those friends that you truly value. I thank God that Jonas and myself have crossed paths.”
Michael David Spirito – Warwick, RI
“In a day and age when the paths of quality craftsmanship and passionate faith rarely cross, Jonas Woods is an artist that successfully pulls both together. Jonas’ musical ability is truly noteworthy. He has taken the talent that God has given him and crafted it into beautiful music. His love for Jesus is evident in both the lyrics he writes and his interaction with his audience. I am grateful to count Jonas as one of my friends and he is welcome to bring his music to my church anytime.”
Khris Rogers – Worship Pastor, Calvary Chapel Columbus
“I have seen Jonas lead his band in front of a crowd of 600 and I’ve seen him lead worship for a congregation of 50. No matter the situation, Jonas never fails to inspire with his music, his passion and his heart for the Lord. He’s an incredible musician and songwriter, faithful follower of Christ and great friend.”
Greg Hood – Rye, CO
“Jonas Woods has been a dear family friend for many years now, and is one of the most gifted people I know. Even though he will first capture your attention with his talent, it is his heart for worship and serving the Lord that will keep it. I recommend him for a service or concert without reservation!”
Jonathan Firey – Lead singer of NewFire and member of FFH
“I was at a concert for a famous band with a massive following. While I was outside the auditorium waiting for the opening band to finish I heard the crowd going wild. I decided to go inside and see what all the fuss was about. Turned out that Jonas totally stole the show from the headliners. The crowd loved him. I loved him. As a matter of fact, I loved his music so much that I made one of his songs the opener for my radio show! He’s THAT good! After being in radio for almost a decade, you’d be surprised how many people I come across who think they have the “right stuff”! The reality is that about one in every 250 artists I hear actually have what it takes. Jonas is THE one…”
Drew Marshall – Host of The Drew Marshall Show
“Jonas Woods is not only a gifted musician, but has a sincere heart of ministry, touch people with his music and his heart for God. His songs of life and faith will inspire you and motivate you to a closer relationship with Jesus. His heart of humility and life of character will leave an impression on those he meets. His desire is connect with people, and in turn connect people to God. I have had the privilege of utilizing his music in multiple settings and I give him my highest recommendation to any pastor, college leader, youth pastor, etc. who is considering using Jonas for future endeavors. Do it and you won’t be disappointed!”
