Jonathan David Conover was raised in the Midwest where his family attended weekly church services, and this is where he was first introduced to music and the Gospel. Jon’s father was the song leader for services, played trumpet in the church band, sang in a quartet and was an ardent student of the Bible. Despite her small frame, his mother was gifted with a powerful soprano voice and used it to sing in the church choir. She also played the flute for the church band. Conover’s first memories are filled with music at church and family gatherings and also family prayers with his father, mother and sister. Jon was raised with a faith rooted in a personal connection with God, the Holy Spirit and the scriptures.
Jon Conover’s ministry as a performing artist is a blend of music, testimony and sharing the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. The success that Jon found in his music career took him all over the United States and to Europe. Jon has worked with huge names in the music industry, has recorded albums in the very best studios and has been introduced to all kinds of people from every walk of life, but he never found the fulfillment that he was looking for. Since recommitting his life to Christ and taking a position to serve as the praise and worship leader at Church of the Good Shepherd in Oswego, IL, each one of Jon’s original songs now carries a story of learning to trust and depend on Jesus Christ.
Aside from being a praise bandleader and performing artist, part of Jon’s ministry is also working with young adults and community leaders to meet the challenges of mental health and addiction. As the president of Help, Sorry, Love NFP (www.helpsorrylove.org) Jon and his team provide events, resources and follow-up communication to individuals who are struggling. Help, Sorry, Love NFP works with over 20 churches and organizations in Illinois to seek out the lost, lonely and afflicted and provide them with the best resources and a support community of caring people.
