Jon grew up in the Twin Cities and is married to Maria, who also serves as a pastor (in the north metro). They have a son and a daughter. He previously served two churches in the Milwaukee suburbs (Mequon and Muskego) and another north of the Twin Cities (Cambridge) prior to coming to All Saints in 2016. Jon is passionate about building a church where people discover the wisdom and joy of faith and how it can transform our lives and our communities.
Before following the call to ministry, Jon studied Political Science, served internships in Washington D.C. and St. Paul, and was a journalist for local and college newspapers. After 20 years away from the Twin Cities, Jon accepted the call to All Saints and returned to the Lake Minnetonka area, where five generations of his family have lived. He enjoys sharing memories of those previous generations with his partially interested kids as they drive around the area. When he’s not leading All Saints, he enjoys cooking new meals with his family, kayaking, ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka, cross-country skiing and classifying astronomical objects on a crowd-sourcing project.
