Jon grew up in a Christian home in Bremen where under God’s gracious hand he came to faith in Christ. He enjoyed growing up with 7 siblings that never left a dull moment. He is a graduate of Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana where he received BA degrees in Biblical Studies and in General Business. After working several years in construction, the Lord called him to the gospel ministry. Jon has been one of the pastors of Grace Fellowship Church since its inception in 1983. Laboring with his father for those many years has been a unique privilege and joy. Robert Hueni served as elder until he went home to be with Christ on January 13, 2013.
Jon has been married to his 12 year old sweetheart, Jose, since 1977. (No they didn’t marry at 12!) Jon has long ago quit playing her in Scrabble, to which he attributes much of their marital bliss. He finds her help to him to be invaluable in all areas of life and ministry. Jon enjoys playing tennis, fighting the curse in his garden, drinking coffee and reading on the back patio, and vacationing anywhere with his wife. They have four children: Kari, Juli, Jonathan, and Krent who have been the source of much joy and hair loss for their father. Their times together are cherished all the more now that it is hard to get them all together. Jon considers himself to be on the receiving end of many rich blessings all through his life and knows that he is heading for an eternity where his gratitude will ever be chasing God’s infinite goodness to him. A great debtor to grace is how he thinks of himself.
