I‘m Jon, I am married to Lucy (pictured below) and we live in Southbourne at the moment.
It’s great to be volunteering at Lansdowne alongside finishing my final year at Moorlands Bible College (which is where I met my lovely wife!).
I normally do a few hours a week while at college but for 5 weeks I am working full-time while on block placement.
I work with the 20s-30s and students normally but am now getting involved in lots of other ways so you may see me leading a service, helping with the youth group or leading a prayer meeting.
Aged 36, I became a Christian 6 years ago- before then, I grew up as a missionary kid in South Korea and Japan, but my adult life was all about fitting in, making money and satisfying myself.
God transformed my life in 2011 when I realized that Jesus was Lord and since then I have always felt His calling to some kind of ministry.
I also work part time as a data analyst, which I hope to do alongside my church-based ministry; I am passionate about copying Paul’s “tentmaking” model of working in two different jobs, both in and out the church!
