The Elders are pleased to recommend Jon Dillon to the congregation as a candidate for discipleship pastor. Jon and Liz Dillon live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. They have been married for 27 years. They have three children: Josh lives in Alexandria, Virginia working in cybersecurity for the Coast Guard, Amanda is a student-athlete at Baylor University, and Julianne is a student-athlete at Kansas University. The Dillons visited Immanuel and worshiped with us on June 17th.
Jon graduated from Bob Jones University with a degree in operations management. He attended seminary at Piedmont International University. For the past eight years, Jon served as church planter and lead pastor of Lifespring Baptist Church in Lowell, Arkansas. Jon describes his heart for the church, “My aim is to be a faithful shepherd to God’s people, teaching them to love and follow Christ, study and learn to Word, exercise brotherly love, pursue redemptive relationships and unbelievers, and to desire the opportunity to be involved in personal discipleship.”
Jon enjoys college sports, especially the Arkansas Razorbacks, exercise, hunting, and cooking on a grill. Jon and Liz are looking forward to what God has in store for them as empty nesters. You can meet the Dillons on Facebook at JonandLiz Dillon.
The Dillons will visit Immanuel on the weekend of October 7th. You will have an opportunity to meet them in the 10:45 worship service. Jon will preach in the 5:00 pm evening service followed by a congregational question and answer. Please attend these gatherings if at all possible. Pray as a congregation for God’s clear direction for the Dillons and the church.
