Jon & Fawn Cobler

Serving as the Lead Teaching Pastor at the Church of Living Water is an honor considering that my first exposure to ministry began right here. After finishing high school in San Diego, CA, I came to Olympia to participate in Living Water’s Immersion Discipleship Program called Anthem (known then as Master’s Commission). I had left my high school love, Fawn, in San Diego where we had met, but she soon followed toward the end of my internship and we were married here a year later.

It was during my internship at Living Water that I received the call to lay down the future plans I had made in exchange for service to Jesus and His Church, and it has been my desire since to fulfill that call with love and integrity. Over the years I furthered my education at Life Pacific College in California and served as the Director of Intern Programs. Fawn and I have also served as Young Adult pastors, spoken at conferences and retreats, and most importantly fostered an amazing family with three boys and one little girl.

It was a dream come true when we were invited back to Living Water to serve under Pastors Burt and Jan. They mentored us during our years of service at Living Water as well as while we were away; they have been a spiritual father and mother as we advanced in ministry.

Fawn and I love the Northwest, we love the potential of Living Water and we love the impact this church has had on this city for the past 75 years. The best is yet to come!
