Recently, I wrote a blog post featuring my close friend and co-worker Milt Rodriguez. Today, I want to feature my other co-worker and long-time friend Jon Zens.
I’ve known Jon since the 90s, and we’ve become extremely close over the years. Jon Zens is a brother whom I look up to and enormously respect. He’s a trailblazer and pioneer for Christians who gather outside the institutional church. In addition, Zens has broken new ground in the area of New Covenant theology.
Here are some of the many resources that Jon Zens has contributed to the Body of Christ. You would be wise to take advantage of them.
