Jon Christ, Youth Pastor

Pastor Jon has been in vocational ministry since 2012. In high school, Jon realized the call into ministry the Lord had placed on his life. As a college freshman, he began pursuing a ministry degree and embarked on a journey in vocational ministry. This 5 year journey eventually led Jon to becoming the student pastor for Hayworth at the start of 2018. Hayworth is a family who opens their doors to any and all who need or want a place to belong. Hayworth’s impact on the community is amazing because they go to people and love them where they are. Jon is very thankful to be part of the Hayworth family. Jon loves sports of any kind, is fun and outgoing, and loves to be with people. Jon and his wife Kristian were married on July 30th, 2016.
