Jon became the pastor at Whidbey Presbyterian Church in 2015. His heroes include Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ken Bailey, Barbara Brown Taylor, Eugene Peterson, and Richard Rohr to name a few. His calling is to point people to the transformative power of God and walk with them into new places with God, with life, and with themselves.
Jon is happiest when he’s outside enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. When recreating (or re-creating), you’ll often find him with his beautiful bride, Kristen, and their daughters Elise & Greta. He’s also a dog lover, so know that if you make an appointment to meet with him, you may be greeted by Porter, his four-legged “office associate” as well.
Jon is also comfortable being moderately un-hip and non-tech savvy. He has very little knowledge of pop-culture or the latest app. His first live concert was to see Yanni with his mother. Fashion sense is not a personal strength. Having honest conversation about faith and life is.
