Founder, The Gathering INC
Jon is first and foremost a family man. He and his wife, Heather, are both natives of the Atlanta area, where they spent the first third of their lives together starting a family. During that time, Jon amassed twenty years of experience as a minister and pastor at Rehoboth Baptist Church in Tucker, Georgia.
In 2011, Jon and Heather relocated to Orlando, Florida, with the children to launch a missional community called “The Gathering” that serves the hospitality industry. It has truly been a “family” adventure to the Entertainment Capital of the World. Jon is a bivocational minister working as a professional-development instructor and public speaker, along with Heather, who is instrumental in driving meaningful relationships and changed lives through the ministry of Love on Stage and outreach of The Gathering INC.
While Jon has master’s degrees from both Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, Heather is the true brains behind this family of six, with a bachelor of education degree from the University of Georgia. This family truly loves being together and enjoys traveling, reading, entertaining, and bringing dreams to life.
