Jon grew up as a missionary kid in southern France. He came to faith at a young age at a missionary conference, but struggled to live out his faith in a country that worships science above all else. Despite a very rebellious adolescence, God kept tugging at his heart and directing his path. Jon was baptized at the age 17 and through God’s provision ended up studying at Grace College in Indiana. There, he was greatly encouraged in his faith and in academia by his Math professor. It was also in college that he met Jessie who later became his wife.
Jon and Jessie have now been married for 16 years and have three children, Liam (9), Eli (7), and Norah (3). He works in the video game industry leading an international team of data scientists who analyze video games for a living.
After arriving in Austin, one of the first churches that the Crows visited was Cityview Bible Church. Immediately, they felt that Cityview was where God was leading them to “settle down.” Jon can be found hamming it up for elementary students in Kidzlife Live while Jessie serves on the deacon team. They also lead a small group in Paloma Lake.
God has grown them significantly over the last 4 years at Cityview often stretching them beyond their comfort zone. With great anticipation of God’s plan, Jon is stepping out in faith to be considered for the role of elder.
