Jon is a born-and-bred Devonian, but 4 years ago faced the culture shock of moving to the big city to study Theology, Music & Worship at London School of Theology. When we chatted with him, he had been unemployed for a few months, and decided to tell us a bit about being an ambassador whilst unemployed. Jon is part of a London Church and volunteers at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.
For Jon being an ambassador starts with being thankful for where God has placed him, and the journey God has brought him on. During unemployment he found it a challenge to come across opportunities to share his faith, but was continually encouraged to pray for God to use him to make a Christ-like impact on the lives of those he would meet.
“I simply aim to be attentive to what Jesus wants to do in and through me.”
He believes that being an ambassador is about trying to be a good son, brother, housemate, and friend. “It means prayerfully considering how God can use me with all my faults and failures, in all my uniqueness, to join in on Christ’s unfailing mission.” Jon is keen to model Godly character to those around him, and his prayer is that in doing this, it will spark more and more conversations for the glory of God and the good of His kingdom.
