Jon Brohn Pastor • (651) 439-7831

Jon BrohnPastor Jon, his wife Kay, and their three children have been blessed to serve as part of the Salem family since 2003. Their children attended Salem school which prepared them well for the future. Jake, who is married to Rachel and is blessed with daughter Emma, serves as pastor at Bethany Lutheran Church in Gibsonia, PA. Matt is studying to be a teacher. Hannah teaches grades 5-6 at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Columbus, OH. Pastor Jon enjoys all the different aspects of ministry at Salem, especially sharing the good news about Jesus on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings. He treasures interacting with people when they’re in the hospital or in a nursing home. He loves all kinds of music, and if you press him for his favorite musician, he would have to say Billy Joel. If he’s not in the office or at home, he’s probably fishing on a nearby lake or stream. He’s always happy to sit down and talk about any topic over a cup of coffee. His favorite thing about Salem? The people! He is thankful to be part of a loving, caring church family.

His hobbies include card-collecting, reading, sports, watching movies, trying and learning new things, and taking his wife Sarah’s phone when she is not looking to play Pokemon GO.
