Jon Betz has lived in Portland for 13 years. He has pastored Citizens Church since 2019 and joined the elder team in 2015. Prior to pastoring, Jon worked for a decade as a documentary filmmaker, producing and directing two environmental feature films. Jon loves storytelling, teaching, doing life in community and watching God grow His people. He and his wife Megan have three kids and reside in a 1948 post-war "bungalow" (quotes intentional) in the shade of their backyard maple in the Montavilla neighborhood.
When not reading about and appreciating God's historic church and the wealth of wisdom from lives lived before him, teaching, raising his kids, and enjoying his church community, Jon hangs a sign as a documentary film consultant at www.jbetz.co.
