Jon Kissell is our Pioneer Minister. He works part-time at St John’s and is also part of the chaplaincy team at YMCA Surbiton.

Before Jon came to St John’s he was Minister-in-Charge of St Catherine's Church, Dublin for six years. On returning to the UK he helped lead and establish a church plant in West London, and then became the Team Vicar at St George’s Tolworth. 

Jon has a heart to train and equip the church in the ministry of Jesus. Teaching people how to pray for each other, to hear from God together, to grow in the spiritual disciplines of prayer and fasting and to create worshipful spaces for engaging and encountering God.

Jon has seen the power of God transform people's lives and has been able to take this hope outside of the church into the chaplaincy work with the homeless.

Jon is married to Kathryn and they have two children.
