Jon grew up in Egg Harbor Township, NJ before studying political science at York College (PA) and Miami University (OH). It was in college when Jesus saved him and redirected his life toward ministry. He now enjoys great discussions on theology and life over coffee, reading, music, and meeting new people. Jon met Kirsten, and they got hitched, for which Jon is a qualitatively better person. Together they share the joy of being the parents of Trevor Hudson, Jude Elliot, and Kaiah Sofie. The Anzardos enjoy spending time together as a family, typically chasing each other around parks and going on “adventures.” After several years as middle & high school teachers, they served as missionaries in Jamaica.
After a few years, they left Jamaica to live in Louisville, KY where Jon completed an MDiv. degree at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Jon & Kirsten love the local church and want to spend the rest of their lives serving her. They have a passion to see people’s lives transformed by the radical, beautiful grace of God. They are thrilled to be back in NJ and are even more excited to be a part of the Maranatha family, living life together on mission to the glory of God.
