For the last 9 months, I’ve had the honor of pouring some of the best training Cru has to offer into an energetic young intern named Jon. It has been an incredible time of getting to know this gifted warrior for the Kingdom, and I have learned at least as much from the process as he has.
Jon has served with Focus on the Family, Josh McDowell, and now is the personal assistant to the president of FamilyLife. He’s open, kind, and passionate. Like Karen, he’s never met a stranger, and people are quickly blessed by an encounter with him. I myself have been blessed to help him grow deeper in how to share his faith, build up leaders for the gospel, and understand the journey on which God is guiding him.
Jon has never been shy about sharing how God delivered him from a life of pornography, and has used that to help rescue many others. We discussed his dream of working full time to fight for purity. Now, God is blessing him with an opportunity to work for Pure Desire Ministries, the folks whose resources God used to transform his life. He’s had an unbelievable journey serving with powerful ministries in Colorado Springs, Dallas, and Orlando; now he’s packing to cross the country again for Portland. Please pray for Jon and those he’ll reach!
