ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Jono is married to Jen, we have four awesome kids and is the Pastor of Bargara Presbyterian Church. He loves to surf on an SUP and camp with my family.
Jono is looking forward to hanging out at CQ Launch camp and together growing in Jesus. He’ll be opening up 2 Peter with us:“Let’s say you don’t feel as though you can live God’s way – it’s too hard. And you live in a world that says: you’re mad to live for Jesus. And if that’s not hard enough, even from within your Church there are voices saying don’t bother. Then the letter that Peter wrote is for you (2 Peter). We’ll be thinking about what it is to grow in Jesus even in an environment that’s difficult.”
