Jon Hessel: Alumni Success Story


Jon Hessel’s experience at MBU provided him the foundation to help lead one of the largest churches in St. Louis.  As a pastor of The Journey’s West County campus, Jon uses classroom knowledge and wisdom from mentors at MBU (who he still seeks guidance from) to share the gospel.

The authentic Christ-centered community he experienced at MBU gave him an understanding of what it means to grow within a body of Christ, and how to apply that idea in a church setting.

Simply put, the experiences he took away from Missouri Baptist University are enabling powerful transformation at a thriving church, empowering its members to become strong, whole and passionate for the Lord.

A story of shining on.
