Jonathan F. Sullivan currently serves as the director of catechetical services for the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. He is also a course facilitator for the Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) and the author of Sunday Prayer for Catechists 2014-2015 (Liturgy Training Publications, 2014).

Jonathan received his BA in theology and pastoral ministry from Quincy University and his MA from Aquinas Institute of Theology. He has made numerous presentations over the years on such topics as the use of technology in ministry, management in an ecclesial context, and the Catholic understanding of the Bible. His webinars on catechesis and social media were featured in the book The Church and New Media.

In addition to his professional interests Jonathan has played in the pit orchestra of a community theater production of A Chorus Line, had a photograph published on the cover of a magazine, and portrayed St. Peter in a one-act play. He enjoys reading, cooking, photography, and playing board games. He’s not so crazy about yard work or buying shoes, but recognizes them as necessary evils in a fallen world.

Jonathan lives in Springfield, Illinois, with his wife and six children.
