Jonathon Herron - March 21-23, 2014

jherronspeakingI'm the founding pastor of Life Church Michigan, a fresh, modern church for people who don't like going to church.  I also have my first book coming out later this year on using the rules of comedy in leadership. I started out by studying comedy under Tina Fey at Second City in Chicago.  After completing my Master's degree from Ashland Theological Seminary, I served as a youth pastor and experienced the depths of grace and compassion while serving orphans in the third-world villages of Africa.  My then-boss and continued mentor,Perry Noble, challenged me to do youth ministry for adults as a church planter.  Our plant in north-east Ohio identified and trained many twenty-something leaders, releasing them into ministry through our successful merger with Western Reserve Grace Church. I have been married to my high school sweetheartAmber (follow her @HerronHacienda) for fourteen years.  We have two children, both through open-adoption: Josiah (age six) and Ainsleigh (age 11 months).  We live outside Saginaw, Michigan and have a wiener dog with a nervous bladder named Slinky.

"Thank you for an OUTSTANDING weekend. This was an extremely well done event... from the ministry, to the various activities, all the great "man food". I have already talked to our church about promoting this heavier for next year!"

"This is my 2nd time and I wish Grace offered summer or fall too because once a year isn't enough time to fellowship and see God moving in Godly men."

"Just an incredible experience...Thank you"
