Dr. Jonathan Titus
Dentist, Titus Dentistry
Dr. Jonathan Titus is a happily married father of five boys as well as the owner of Titus Dentistry, a private general dentistry practice in Middletown, IN. Early in fatherhood, his passion for reading and podcasts mixed with borderline workaholism started him on the never-ending quest to discover what it means to be a good man, husband, and father.
When Jonathan providentially stumbled across Exodus 90, he found the experience a powerful, real-world, tangible implementation of the philosophical and theological truths of God and His Church. The fraternity that was forged in the ninety days also provided the support and accountability that is so necessary but often lacking in modern man’s spiritual journey. Exodus 90 has been such a blessing to Jonathan and his family that he can’t help but work to give the same gift to others!
