Pastor Jon and his wife Celia have served together in various ministerial roles throughout California, South Carolina, and Colorado. They have been at First Baptist Church and Valley Christian Academy for almost a decade and are passionate about helping teenagers see their need to separate from the world, to fully surrender to the Creator, and to serve in their local church. Jon is a fan of all things Detroit (his hometown), enjoys a hot cup of coffee, and loves spending time with their five children: Leinani, Leeland, Laurie Jane, Mya, and Ruby.
