Chief Executive Officer
For over forty years, Fred has called the community of Peoria his home. As a young boy of missionary parents, he lived on the campus of Southwest Indian School, which is now the site for the new C3 Christian Community Center. Fred was brought in at the beginning of the year by World Gospel Mission as the founding C.E.O. to create the first Christian Community Center in Peoria. With 30+ years of experience owning and operating local businesses, he is an instrument to carry out God’s great plan for this center. Fred not only brings leadership experience in business, but has also been an active member and Elder in the local church and has built deep and long lasting relationships with many church and business leaders in this area. On any given day, you can find him involved in some of his favorite relationship-building meetings, usually at the local golf course or coffee shop! If you know Fred, you would say he has a larger-than-life outlook and the personality to back it up. Fred’s life verses (Proverbs 3:5-7) are often used, but rarely lived; Join him in living out God’s will.

Jon and his wife, Lindsay, have two active little girls to keep them busy in their free time.
