The son of Jewish parents, Jon Ainbinder made a personal committment to follow Jesus Christ at the young age of 12 years old. Astonished at first that their son would embrace a religion other than their own, Jon's parents became convinced of his sincere devotion to the Lord and came to support his conversion. Even after receiving his calling to become a preacher, Jon pledged himself to honoring the wishes of his parents and was rewarded when they finally gave him their blessing to pursue the ministry. John and his family currently reside in Georgia.
