Today on The Pursuit: Jon Tyson

Jon planted Church of the City in NYC in 2018 as the Lead Pastor. Prior to that, he founded Trinity Grace Church, which grew to 11 parishes in neighborhoods all across the city. Growing up in Australia, dropping out of high-school, and moving to America by himself at the age of 19, Jon’s journey eventually brought him to Times Square, dreaming of building a church that would reach the woman in the window at Starbucks.
