Jon J. Cardwell is a pastor, preacher of the gospel and the author of several books, including the bestseller, CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED.
A former Navy deep sea diver and Christian missionary to remote locales, his globetrotting and diversified background have been useful for helping others since he recognizes there are a multitude of perspectives all around the world.
He has eaten raw snake in Subic Bay and raw seal in Scammon Bay; monkey in Asia and moose in Alaska; balut in Luzon and bison in Lincoln. He has survived floods, blizzards, super typhoons, a major volcanic eruption, swimming with sharks, and a life-threatening disease. He has met a prince and ministered to the poorest of the poor in their homes in the garbage dump of Manila.
Jon is the “Spirited Speaker with Compelling Insights” who is sought for speaking engagements in Christian mission, ministry, and mogo-on-the-g’go-go.
He has four children, three grandchildren and currently lives in Ninilchik, Alaska with his wife, Melissa. Jon is currently the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church since May 2018, his fifth pastorate since the Lord called him into the ministry.
