Biography of Jonathan Miller from Miller for Congress
I’m a native West Virginian. I grew up in Berkeley County, which is located in the state’s Eastern Panhandle.
While growing up in Berkeley County, I made the best and most important decision of my life. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior at 8 years old. My life has been forever changed for the better because I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior.
Today, I live in Inwood, West Virginia with my lovely wife Kimberly. My wife Kimberly is truly one of God’s greatest blessings in my life.
I have a step son named Michael Williams. He’s a great blessing to my wife and me. We love him dearly.
I’m a graduate of Musselman High School in Inwood, West Virginia. While in high school, I started my first job cleaning tables and washing dishes for a restaurant.
After high school, God blessed me with the opportunity to attend college.
In 2006, I graduated from High Point University in High Point, North Carolina with a degree in political science. I’m thankful for the sacrifices made by my parents, Jim and Rita Miller, and my brother, Jeremy Miller, to send me to college.
I moved back to West Virginia after college.
I’ve worked as a substitute teacher and as a loan officer since graduating college. Today, I work as a health insurance consultant.
Since 2006, the people of southern Berkeley County have elected me to serve them as their representative in the West Virginia House of Delegates. This has been another one of God’s great blessings in my life.
My time in the House of Delegates has brought me closer to God.
God was a priority in my life until high school. During high school and college, I put God aside.
Then, thanks to God’s blessings through my local church, First Baptist Church of Inwood led by Pastor Devin Ward, and Capitol Commission Ministry, led by Pastor Tim Pauley, my hunger for learning and applying God’s Word began to grow.
In 2009, I rededicated my life to Christ.
After I rededicated my life to Christ, I began praying to God to see what His will was for my life. Specifically, I asked God: should I stay in politics or get out?
In May 2010, God answered my prayers. He called me to run for Congress in 2012, and I received God’s peace about running.
Now, I’m acting on God’s calling in my life by following Him in faith by running for U.S. Congress in 2012.
