Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Jon Klinepeter is driven by a core belief that all people are created with inherent worth and value, and our human systems need to reflect that truth. He loves the work of global peacemaking, with a focus on interfaith engagement and conflict regions. He serves as the Lead Pastor of Willow Chicago, an urban, multicultural community that is a part of the Willow Creek family of churches. His core theology is expressed through efforts to reconcile inequality, give voice to the marginalized and show the radical love and grace of Jesus to all people. Having earned his MBA from The University of Notre Dame, Jon and his family love all things ND (Go Irish!). While all of the above listed activity takes significant time, the three people he absolutely adores are his talented, artistic wife Christina and their two wide-eyed sons, Gabe and Will.
