Jon and Jeniffer served as pastor and wife at Calvary Baptist Church of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, for over twenty years. In that role he developed an intentional plan for training men and women to serve Christ. Out of this, God blessed Calvary by sending over twenty-five people into full-time ministry since 2000. Jon first served as Vice President of Training, and after transitioning to the presidency in 2019, established as a core objective helping those churches mother churches and church plants train men and women as spiritual leaders through intentional discipleship. He desires to see those churches work together to send out people to plant and revitalize churches. He brings oversight and encouragement to the enrichment and training work already being provided to Baptist Church Planters' missionaries through Leadership Summit, Family Camp, church planting school, Kingdom Come Training, and candidate school. With farming and hunting in his background, Jon loves to work hard with dependence upon God in his endeavors. Jon and Jen enjoy their three children, Rob, Joshua and Abigail and their granddaughter and twin grandsons.
