Pastor of Student Ministries

Student Ministries

What people say about Jon:

That he is a servant leader with big dreams and a heart for students. 


What else he likes to do:

Hike, play music, and explore Oregon (and occasionally binge a Netflix series).


Where he was when he chose Christ:

I was ten years old at WiNeMa Christian Camp near Lincoln City. I accepted Jesus as my Savior and was baptized in the lake. The ocean was too cold! 


Why he chose ministry work:

Originally I thought I would go into the music business scene, but God quickly corrected me and put me in front of a youth group and it’s been a whirlwind ever since. 


His favorite worship song:

The Stand by Hillsong United.

The best experience he ever had while serving the Lord:

I was able to lead a student to rededicate her life back to Jesus after turning her back on Him. It was an awesome celebration that ended in a baptism. 

The best advice he ever got:

If you can dream it, God can dream it bigger.


What he's doing for Dayspring:

I am equipping students to live out their faith as lasting Christians who love Jesus and serve like Him.
