Jon is married to Kerry, and like many others in the Church, are both committed to helping people embrace their God-given roles and discover the gifts of the Spirit in the local church in a scripture-honouring, Christ-exalting way.
Having visited Kansas City to inquire about the background to some of the stories of the so-called ‘Kansas City Prophets’ Jon was soon privileged to be introduced to Paul Cain. After Paul visited the UK in 1990 with John Wimber a strong friendship with Paul developed.
Over the last thirty-six years, Jon’s own diverse experience in church life with the prophetic ministry has brought him many new friendships and interesting opportunities. For a number of those years, Jon was a Pentecostal Minister and on finishing his theological training at the Elim Bible College, had the opportunity to be the assistant pastor to the Rev. John Glass who went on to lead the growing Elim Pentecostal Churches and then became the Chair of the Evangelical Alliance in the UK. As a young minister, Jon declined, ambitious to prove himself by leading a few churches himself.
Because of his involvement with Paul Cain Ministries over the years, Jon is the associate for PCM in the UK & Europe. As such he was amused but delighted to meet up again with John Glass at the Sunderland Conference hosted by Ken & Lois Gott in November 2017 where Paul was preaching alongside Paul Manwaring from Bethel.
Jon feels that is calling is to, “restore hope in the heart of the believer by providing a scripture-honouring approach to the prophetic ministry. He is especially keen to see the local church moving in the amazing gifts of the Spirit, and maturing in prophetic ministry.
Jon works alongside Dan Reise, Paul Cain’s associate in the USA who travels with Paul on a regular basis and is Paul’s oldest friend and historian for PCM.
As a creative thinker and gifted communicator, Jon’s warm, humorous and authentic style of ministry disarms people, enabling him to relate to almost anyone and more importantly, encourage them to press into the great things that God is doing in their lives.

Keep trusting the Lord – You will not be disappointed!
