John Jones

Our pastor is John Jones

John grew up in a military family that brought him to Anchorage his freshman year of high school (go Chugiak Mustangs!), moving to California after a few semesters of college (Go Seawolves!).

John and Karen met and married in California 25 years ago. Their first home together was in San Antonio, Texas, where John studied literature at the University of Texas. After moving to Chicago for grad school (Wheaton College Graduate School) John worked for a few years in the publishing industry.

Through the ministry of College Church of Wheaton, John and Karen began to set their hearts on full-time church ministry, heading to St. Louis to attend Covenant Theological Seminary.

John and Karen have three children: John (age 18), Erik (age 15), and Linnea (age 13).
