Say hello…

Where are you from?
I’m originally from Upstate New York (around Albany), but I currently live in Lawrenceville, GA

What led you to join Connect?
I was curious about job opportunities (namely in software development) … not necessarily for now, but for the future

How do you hope to contribute?
In any way I can.


Welcome Jonathan!
I’m sure you will find this forum extremely interesting and informative to say the least!
I look forward to reading your posts – so jump right in – you will find something that sparks your interest for sure!


Hello Jonathan, welcome to Connect. I’m glad you have joined. How did you hear about Connect? As @kbtheassnt already mentioned, there are many interesting topics around God, faith and the Bible. Have you already found a few topics that interest you? Connect actually offers job opportunities: Employment opportunities. There you will also find contact addresses for further information.


Welcome to Connect, Jonathan. It’s great to hear of your passion to serve the Lord through your work. Technology is something I’m always catching up on, haha. :smiley:


Hey Jonathan! @JonathanOesch
Wow- upstate NY to GA- that’s quite a climate change :slight_smile:
I’m glad you joined Connect- and hope you enjoy looking around!


Hey Dan! Thanks for the welcome. For almost 9-10 months now, I have had a long commute to work (1 hour to 1 1/2 hours depending on school traffic). I have found radio to be boring so I have been listening to podcasts on my way to work. I recently started with Spotify and I searched to see if there were any programs I used to watch on tv a long time ago where in here (namely inTouch, TurningPoint, and RZIM) … fun fact: RZIM seems to be the only one in Spotify (of the three listed). Back story: I grew up watching Ravi Zacharias on Sundays (he was always on either before or after Charles Stanley (inTouch).

So I have been burning through Let My People Think and Just Thinking; I have started going through Just Asking. While listening, it struck me that RZIM is based out of Atlanta; I’m from Atlanta. That got me curious to see where in Atlanta; it turns out RZIM is located just 2-3 miles from where I work. Then I got curious if the RZIM academy is housed elsewhere or if it was in the same location (I know it is an online curriculum, but I Vince and Jo live in Atlanta so it makes sense that it too would be in Atlanta). During my search I saw the events tab; in curiousity I went to look to see if there was anything happening locally.

To my surprise, there is an event tomorrow (at first it was sold out, but some cancellations happened and I am able to go). All while going though the website, I could help but look at the website at a technical level and I wondered if there was any demand/need of a software developer (how cool would it be to work for an organization that I grew up with?). And to be honest, I am glad I don’t see anything right now (I have at least one more year at my current job before I can switch without some penalty). But all that searching had led me to here in Connect … a series of curious wonderings.

I’ll be honest one more time (for this response). I was a little apprehensive about signing up for two reasons: 1) I am really bad about connecting with online things. I really bad at facebook, twitter … I have them, I just rarely look/connect with them. 2) Even if I have something to say, my brain works so much faster than my hands. I either end up having thoughts that are disjointed or incomplete (depending whether the hand is compensating or the head). This also leads to my first problem.

But ultimately, I am feeling a push to be here (I don’t know why … just do). That is why I am here now.

Hey Brittany. I too am always catching up on technology :wink:. I am learning that it is one of those lifetime learning/catching-up type of thing.
