What We Believe
Jon became pastor of Living Hope Missionary Church in June 2022. Jon grew up listening to sermons in the church where his father was a youth minister and he accepted Christ at an early age. He felt his call to ministry in high school. Despite his desire to leave Indiana, God had other plans. He ended up at Huntington University where his passion to show the love of Christ and the truth of who God is began to grow.
For Pastor Jon, this translated to youth ministry, first as the Campus Director for Youth for Christ, then as the Youth Director at New Covenant Worship Center. For the last few years, God has been working in his life to become a leader of men and women in the areas of discipleship and pastoring. To fulfill God’s further calling, Pastor Jon is working toward completing a Master of Theology degree at Redemption Seminary.
Jon enjoys being with his family, meeting new people, coaching basketball, golfing, and studying/understanding the Bible.

Living Hope has been our home church since 2015, where I have been privileged to serve as an elder, lead a disciple group, and help operate the AV booth on Sundays. The interpersonal warmth and application of Bible study have been hallmarks of Living Hope Missionary Church, where we strive to differentiate the popular opinions of the world from the eternal Truth provided by God in His Scripture.
