Jonathan “Coach Goose Burgard is one tall drink of water, standing at 6’7”. Although one might look at his outer image as massive, Jonathan humbles himself daily with a soft heart and an intense passion for humanity. The gift of being able to better a person’s life, children and adults alike. Jonathan is a man of God. Which means that he gives his whole heart to Him. Jonathan’s mission since high school was to understand God’s purpose for his life and develop and cultivate his craft as he pursued his calling. This is where Jonathan’s story gets real interesting.
