As always, Jon dedicates his work to the Lord, Who blesses him every day through his wife, Kristen.
John Spencer “Originally from Southwest Missouri, I made my way East after being hired at Sight & Sound Theatres where I still work some 14 years later. I met and married my wife, Angie, and we currently live in Lancaster with our 2 daughters, Lael and Alonna. It has been almost 15 years since the last time I performed for a live audience but something I’ve wanted to get back into for a long time. My biggest passions are writing feature films, short films, manuscripts, and inspirational stories. I’ve always been inspired by the way stories have the ability to change and challenge us. I believe the elements that make for a great story also make for a great life! I am looking forward to serving along side of Servant Stage Company to bring these beautiful songs that we all cherish to life with such an amazing array of talented singers and musicians.”
