Pastor Jon, Diana and Tristan Denham

Raised in a Seattle pastor’s home, Jon essentially grew up in the church. He fell in love with Diana at Seattle Pacific University and they went on to become life partners in marriage and ministry!  

With a design degree from the UW (go Huskies), Jon developed the role of Communications Director at Westgate Chapel (in Edmonds) while providing small group and worship leadership. God called Jon into pastoral ministry in 2001, so he pursued his Masters in Theology degree at NW Graduate School of the Ministry while serving as Westgate’s Assistant Pastor of Adult and Evangelism Ministries.

God called Jon and Diana to the Willamette Valley in 2005 to serve as Worship and Adult Ministries Pastor at Lebanon First Baptist Church. They pastored Sweet Home River of Life Fellowship from 2009 to 2012, during which time God blessed them with their adorable son, Tristan! Jon and Diana have served in Crawfordsville since 2013 as Associate Pastor until Pastor Kelly and Heidi Graham were called at the end of 2016 to pastor Salem Calvary Chapel.

Through it all, God has nurtured a passion within Jon and Diana’s hearts for going deeper into God’s Word, pursuing greater heights in worship through His Spirit, and strengthening relationships with God’s people, both in the local church and the larger Body of Christ, by God’s grace and for His glory!
