Lead Church Planters
Pastor George Lim and Janelle Lim
Core Team Members
Jon and Jackie Owens
After meeting as undergraduates at Purdue University in the mid-1990s, the Owens' life has taken them literally around the globe. They married in 1998 at Pike's Place Market in Seattle, WA, then were led to San Diego, CA, where they joined the core team planting The City Church. Once the church was established, they were led to move again - this time closer to family in Memphis, TN.
In 2011, the Owens family began an exciting 2.5-year adventure living overseas in Singapore. Jon worked for Pratt & Whitney while Jackie taught Bible classes to grades 6-8 at International Community School Singapore. The family was relocated back to the United States, landing in beautiful South Glastonbury, Connecticut in October 2013.
Jon is still enjoying his work in the aerospace industry and Jackie adores working as a Special Education paraprofessional for Glastonbury Public Schools. They are abundantly blessed with three vibrant children: Jordan attends Glastonbury High School, Jonathan attends Smith Middle School, and Jude attends Nayaug Elementary School.
Jon and Jackie Owens are lay leaders who share a passion for serving God in a variety of ministries, including: community service, worship music, and nurturing the exploration of God's Word for children and youth.
