Pastor Jon Hall has been on staff at Grace Church in Ashland, Ohio, for the past 25 years, serving as pastor of care and community impact. When a young Dan Allen, recently retired senior pastor, welcomed Jon to Grace more than two decades ago, there was a need for caring for their own congregation as well as connecting with the community.
“He was ‘for Ashland’ before we ever came up with the term,” Dan said.
During his time on staff, Jon helped establish a database to facilitate ongoing connection and ministry to the congregation. He also worked with other leaders to build the backbone of how they would interact with the community and partner with established organizations who were serving Ashland County.
In a recent video from Grace Church, Jon reflects on his ministry over the past two and a half decades. Watch the interview between Dan and Jon here.
