Jon has followed Christ from an early age. He has followed Christ through daily prayer, staying in the Bible, seeking to live in obedience to him, and sharing the Lord's love with those God puts in his life. His walk was influenced mostly through his family's example, great friends, the pastor's sermons, and Sunday school.
Jon and Tessa crossed paths many times in their early years since they both grew up in Federal Way and attended Seattle Christian. They met again during her college years and were married the following year 2002. They have one son Elijah and four daughters Jacobi, Selah, Lyvia and Kitra. As a family we enjoy staying active with running, camping, walking together, trips to the park, watching movies and, of course, playing games. Jon became our Youth pastor in early 2009.
