Meet Fr. Jon


Hello, this is Fr. Jon. Thanks for checking out my short bio page.  Please contact me if you would like more information about me or the Hope on THE WAY Ministries.

I was baptized at St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Kellogg, Idaho. After a lengthy time of being separated from the Church, I had a radical born-again experience (age 15), through the ministry of Rev. Billy Graham, that turned my life around by the grace of Jesus.

During the charismatic renewal of the late 1990s, I had a personal encounter with the love, power, and person of the Holy Spirit.

I've been in vocational Christian ministry for over 30 years.  I earned a M. Div. from Gateway Seminary and I've served as a chaplain, church planter, keynote speaker, retreat leader, senior pastor, worship leader, and youth pastor. I've also ministered internationally in Africa, Southeast Asia, and South Asia.

​I like ministering to all ages, but I especially enjoy working with youth and young adults. 


I've been married to Cheryl for 39 years and we have four faithful Christian adult children.

​​Please reach out to me and let me know how I can serve you.
