Jon joined the BOF team in October 2017. He has become a vital part of the BOF team. When he is not working on a building project or overseeing new construction, he plays a direct role in sharing the Gospel with orphans during their stay at BridgeStone as well as in orphanages in Ukraine. He also serves as a worship leader. Here is his story is in own words…
“I found Bridges of Faith with the help of George Turnipseed, a close family, and mentor, who pointed me in this direction after I reached out and explained what God was tugging at my heart to do. Coming out of a very difficult time in my life, I was desperately searching and seeking out what God’s will for my life was. After much prayer, God had revealed to me that he wanted to go into missions. I was searching for opportunities but didn’t see any until George told me about a local ministry called Bridges of Faith. I decided to visit the campus and see if it was the real deal. After speaking with Tom Benz and recognizing the hand of God on this ministry, I began volunteering 3 to 4 times a week. Within a month, I became a full-time missionary with Bridges of Faith.”
