Jon Jenkins


Regions: Varsity Athletes


Jon Jenkins currently serves as the admissions counselor for incoming varsity athletes. Originally from Springfield, Missouri, he is a 2002 Evangel graduate with a major in Psychology, a concentration in Biblical Studies and a minor in Spanish.

Some of Jon’s favorite memories as a student came as a player on the varsity basketball team, and Jon admits that he still gets chills thinking about the national championship game of 2002. During his time at Evangel, Jon also played varsity golf and served on his floor council. Jon remains an avid golfer to this day. However, his favorite thing to do in his free time is spend time with his wife and two young children.

Jon is excited to use his past experiences to help bring new students to Evangel. “I look forward to working with the incoming athletes,” he says. “Having been an athlete at Evangel and having been the residence director in Krause, I understand in a unique way some of the challenges and benefits being a varsity athlete at Evangel can present.”

When asked what the best part about Evangel is, Jon says that it’s the people he gets to work with on a daily basis. “The faculty is great, not just professionally, but also as people,” he says. “Most of all, I have really enjoyed the relationships I have gotten to build in my last three years here on staff.”
