Jonathan-6 Stones-6511-EDIT-5×7

Jonathan Fisher

Compassion Ministries Assistant

I started out at 6 Stones as a volunteer as a counselor in the New Hope center and liked it so much I decided to work for them as well. I have two jobs now. I am primarily a Biblical Counselor working right next to 6 Stones at Metroplex Counseling, but while I am working on acquiring my hours I also am working at the New Hope Center.

A little about me: I am an identical twin and my mother is from Mexico City. I speak both Spanish and English and I am currently 27 years old. I first started volunteering at 6 stones because I have a passion to help people see truth. So many of us are blinded by unrealistic expectations that we get depressed if those things do not align with our current state. I want to help people see hope in their situation, regardless of how “bad” their situation is. With the right perspective and the correct application of truth people can see hope and have faith that their is light at the end of their tunnel. That is my passion and is why I do what I do here at 6 stones.
