  20. Simiyu Wekesa Simon

    Very true. I too enjoy his sermons and I believe God uses him. He has been used by God to speak into my own life situations several times.

  21. Am always blessed whenever I listen to his sermons. He is so passionate about his teachings. I have been listening to him for some years now, he is actually my mentor. Can’t get tired of listening to him every time.

  22. Jon and Tammy had two children together – Ben and Mary.

    Jon and his first wife had three -Peter-Jon, Jessica, and Christy.

    1. If you read above in his IMBD, it says Peter Jon and Bem were from his first wife. And he and Tammy had two daughters, Mary and Christy. I have read in other places that he had Jessie who passed and Peter Jon and Ben.

      1. IMDB is wrong. If you listen to his earlier teaching on Job 1&2, he tells his family story and how he told his three children, Peter-Jon, Jessie and Christy that their mum had died. Ben and Mary came from his second marriage.

    2. I had prayed for a Godly Pastor to teach me the word from Genesis to Revelation. The next time I was on YouTube, there Pastor Jon, young, in his 30’s, teaching outside in the round. I thought here’s somebody new. Then he talked of his church, Applegate Fellowship. I was stunned, this is the Pastor whom God sent to me. When I first moved to Sarasota, FL, the Apartment complex was named Applegate Apartments. He was the one God sent to me to teach the Word.

      I’m currently writing down his Sermons word for word in order to keep them for keepsake and to go to when someone talks about the Bible. I’m truly blessed, Pastor Jon has the most wonderful family! Heaven will be sweet when we’re all there!

  23. This is incorrect. Ben Courson and Mary Courson are Jon and Tammy’s biological children.

    Ben’s children from his first wife are the deceased Peter John, deceased Jessie, and his living daughter, Christy.

  24. I enjoy Pastor Jon’s sermons. They are insightful, encouraging, and uplifting. I especially enjoy his infectious laugh and funny play on words. He just makes me want to know and live Jesus more. Thank you for your commitment fir the gospel.
