About Jon

I’m Jon.

I’m also Dr. Jon Swanson and Rev. Jon Swanson. And husband, dad, and friend.  I’m a teacher, author, hospital chaplain, and consultant. I’ve been an executive pastor, higher education administrator, and afraid. 

Nancy and I have been married since 1983 and have two adult children. 

I write five days a week at 300wordsaday.com. I’ve written about chaplaincy at beforeyouwalkin.com. And published some books for Lent, Advent, and understanding Nehemiah.

For more about the work of a hospital chaplain, I wrote “The Sacred Work of a Hospital Chaplain.”

What I say here doesn’t necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers.

  1. Dr. Jon, I always seem to find you when I need someone to speak into my life! I praise God for your wisdom and friendship. I’m in the midst of a painful ministry transition and know that if I hang around you long enough, I will get some wonderful counsel! I will be keeping up more with this resource! It’s great. Tom Schakat.
