Jon grew up in central Pennsylvania hunting whitetail and trout fishing with cousins and friends. Hunting whitetail has continued ever since but based on their location in Minnesota he’s had to trade trout for walleye and northern.
Jon spent his first three years in pastoral ministry as a middle school pastor. During this time, it became increasingly clear that the most effective youth ministry had to focus on partnering with parents, not just focusing on the students.
Jon and his wife Megan have three children. Whether it is biking, hiking, boating, or swimming at the lake, they love to be outside and active. Having been a wrestler and football player, Jon also enjoys watching and playing almost all sports. He loves reading books and wants to never stop learning.
