Jon Twitchell

Jonathan K. Twitchell joined the Christian Network Foundation in the fall of 2015. Jon was born and raised in Maine, graduating in 1998 with a degree in youth ministry.

Jon served in Brunswick (Maine) and Cape Elizabeth (Maine) churches as a youth pastor before accepting a call to be lead pastor at the Cape Elizabeth church, where he served from 2001-2015.

During his pastoral ministry, Jon has been engaged in a broad use of technology, utilizing radio, television, internet, podcasting, and live-streaming to share the gospel message.

As a bi-vocational pastor for the last 8 years, Jon served as a funeral home chaplain, representing the Good Shepherd to families during their grief. Drawing from these experiences, Jon authored Presence: A Pastor's Guide to Funerals in 2014.

"I look forward to serving the Foundation, helping individuals build plans to support the church at all levels. In these complicated days it is vital that we build a sustainable future as we participate in the mission of God. The Foundation plays a key role in supporting local, regional, and global ministry."

Jon and Melody have been married since 1997, and they live in Southern California with their cat, Mia. They enjoy baseball, traveling, and serving together.
