My response to the Biblical narrative of the Mission Of God – in greenfield developments in Melbourne


Jono has served as a Baptist pastor in various settings but has most recently discovered his true vocation as a placemaker. Cultivating gardens and a faith community go hand in hand with developing social enterprises and seeking the common good. Tune in to hear how Jono finds a way to integrate his business skills, pastoral care, neighbourliness, and community service in this innovative and pioneering work.
