Pastor Jon and wife, Kari, joined the New Life team in May of 2014. They are both from Michigan but served in youth ministry for 3 years in Buffalo, NY before coming to the state they love. Jon and Kari have been married since December of 2011 and love serving in ministry together. The Kozaks couldn’t imagine a better place to serve in the church than in youth ministry. They enjoy seeing young people discovering their identity in Christ and encouraging them in a life of authentic faith.
Pastor Jon is a licensed minister in the Assemblies of God and received a Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Ministry from Valley Forge Christian College. He has a passion for teaching God’s Word and bringing the hope of the Gospel to life. Some of his hobbies are playing music (drums and piano), sports (watching and playing), and endurance races.
Pastor Jon and Kari welcomed a little girl to their family in January 2015.
