SERVING IN: United States, North America
MINISTRY FOCUS: Homeless Outreach, Disaster Relief, Restoration
Jon Klover was born and raised in Michigan. He moved to Pensacola, Florida in 2005 where God radically transformed his life. He has since spent a total of 10 years serving in youth and young adults’ ministry.
In 2012 Jon walked through a season of restoration in his own personal life. In that season he experienced what it feels like to be the prodigal son. Out of that God birthed Operation: Lost Sheep in 2017. Operation: Lost Sheep is a ministry focused on Matthew 18:12 where Jesus said “If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go look for the one that wandered off?”
In 2018 Jon & Hayley were married. The words from this passage have become their marching orders to go outside the walls of the church as a rescue mission to bring back those who have strayed away.
At the center of everything that they do is helping to restore people back to God the Father. They accomplish this in two different ways:
1. Going outside the walls of the church to reach the lost in various ways, such as homeless outreach, disaster relief, and walking individuals through one-on-one restoration
2. Partnering with local churches to help build a restoration plan. They usually come and do a short two part series. Part one consists of sharing the Biblical truth on God’s heart for the lost. Part two is a time where they EQUIP, TRAIN, and IGNITE by providing practical tools for the congregation to carry out into their own communities.
