Pastor Jon C. Nelson – Lead Pastor
Raised between the country and the inner city of Kansas City, he attended a local Missionary Baptist church and there quietly declared his atheism. Not until college did he read the Bible cover-to-cover which began his journey towards Jesus. After receiving to Christ Jon immediately began pursuing changes that led him from an avid atheist to a pastor. Years later, Jon graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological College after leaving Westside Family Church as the College, Young Professionals, and Single Adults Pastor.
Jon is a passionate communicator, innovative thinker, and the leader of communities that call participants to lives that make much of the glory of God. Jon endeavors to be a resource enabling people to effectively reach their community by leading Biblically faithful and culturally relevant lives. His greatest joy outside of Jesus is being married to his wife Heather and being a dad to their children.
