In his "spare time" Jon is the pastor of River Valley Christian Church in Lake Elmo, MN. 
He has been serving as a youth pastor, administrator, associate pastor, and now senior pastor for over 20 years in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
He originally began taking Krav Maga classes as a way to get back into shape after years of not being in shape! But, soon realized the importance of every person having the confidence, that in a dangerous situation they would have the skills and the knowledge to safely defend themselves and their loved ones. And as Imi always said, “So that one may walk in peace.”
