Hey guys, my name is Jonah. I'm 22 years old and work out of Steubenville, OH during the school year. I love leading praise and worship and have had a good amount of experience leading large groups(sometimes close to a thousand) in worship. I can do a wide variety, from super charismatic to more traditional. I also have experience giving witness talks or presentations on a wide variety of subjects dealing with things such as God's love, human dignity, chastity, and human love as well as over experience helping to facilitate over 100 retreats. Contact me or request a quote for more information and God bless!
Jonah was on time and ready to go for our chapel service. I thought he was going to teach the children several songs, but he only did one with 4 lines. He has a beautiful voice, but it would have been nice if he had a power point presentation to go with his chapel song. I was hoping for a bit more enthusiasm and excitement for the students. I thought he would use his guitar through out, but he did not. By the end of his talk the students were getting antsy because they were a bit bored.
Response from Jonah Soucy:
Thank you so much for your feedback. I am always looking to improve my craft. I often use PowerPoints when working with adults and adolescents, but wasn’t sure that it would work with the little ones. I also mistakenly thought you were looking for more of a speaker with a little bit of music thrown in. I would like to make it up to you! This was a great experience for me, and I would be more than willing to come back and play and speak again at no cost until you are 100 percent satisfied. Please feel free to go through the booking again and we can set something up if you’d like.
Jonah does a great job with leading worship
Price Range: $50-$500
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Expect a prayerful service. Usually when doing praise I follow what's called the Temple model, starting with more upbeat songs to get everyone synchronized in worship together, then start to slow things down to lead into a time of silence with the Lord to allow him to speak to our hearts. Talks and praying over and with the audience can be incorporated into this time.
I grew up Catholic-Christian but didn't make my faith my own until my high school years. I've been blessed to have some incredible experiences traveling the states putting on retreats and doing ministry with NET ministries, and have also had incredible experiences traveling Eastern Europe. I have a lot of love for the Lord, and a passion for leading others to him. If you want to know more about my life feel free to shoot me a message or book me for an event and ask me to give my witness talk!
Additional Booking Notes
Venues with their own sound system and lighting are much preferred, though not necessary. I have an amp and basic setup, but for large gatherings it's not the greatest. Thankfully I have many connections and am able to borrow or rent equipment, but it will cost a little bit more.

Influences & Inspiration
Though he pulls his style and sound mainly from indie alternative bands such as Of Monsters of Men or Switchfoot, Jonah has found inspiration in a wide variety of music, from the early days of Crosby, Stills, and Nash to The Beatles and Rolling Stones to the 70's, 80's, 90's and beyond.
