“I have always enjoyed the intersection of philosophy and faith. I like to find and tear down the different roadblocks that hold people back from considering the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My goal is to equip Christians with reasons for their faith and to illuminate the reasonableness of the Gospel to those who wouldn’t otherwise consider it.”
Jon is a speaker and writer with Ultimate Questions, an apologetics initiative of Power to Change Students, and an adjunct professor with Master’s College and Seminary where he enjoys the privilege of teaching his favourite subjects of Philosophy, Ethics, and Apologetics. He has been involved in apologetics evangelism for over a decade.
Jon holds an MA in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Biola University in California at the Talbot School of Theology, and a BA from Tyndale University in Toronto with a double major in Philosophy and Religious Studies. He also graduated from Niagara College with a diploma in film and video production, which is where his faith was first challenged leading to his call into this ministry.
Jon and his wife Leah reside in Peterborough, Ontario with their two children, Laura and Joshua, and their pets Lieutenant Reginald Barkley (dog), Spot and Dr. Daniel Jackson or “DJ” (cats). They enjoy family walks, swing dancing, and Pokemon Go.
