Jon has been involved in ministry work since age 12 (started in tech ministry). He has been serving at The Pointe since March of 2017. Before that, he served as a worship pastor, volunteer musician and leader of tech ministries in Indiana, Virginia, Florida and Maryland. Before moving into vocational ministry in 2008, he taught instrumental music in Florida and Maryland. And, yes, he has to know how to play all the instruments (functionally)…and enjoys expanding his musical talents while serving at The Pointe.
Jon calls Baltimore “home” and will always be an “east coaster” at heart. He is a die hard Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan. He enjoys all things sports and loves to chase little white balls on freshly cut grass when the weather is warm. After high school Jon attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA and in May of 2000 received his Bachelor of Music in preparation for his teaching career. After surrendering to full time ministry he enrolled in Liberty Theological Seminary and in May of 2012 received his Master of Divinity in Worship Studies.
However, those degrees are not the greatest thing he took away from Lynchburg, VA. He met his wife Rebekah while at Liberty, and they have now been married for 17 years. They have 2 children, Natalie, 10 and Aubrey, 6.
Jon’s heart is to help people find and follow Jesus, and in that, help them to become worshippers that God seeks after (John 4:23). He prays that those in all facets of their walk with Christ will learn to view their entire lives as an act of worship to God (Romans 12:1-2).
