Jon Stockley, together with his wife, Jo, moved to the county of Cheshire, England, in June 2011. His motivation and passion is to see communities transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. Jon and Jo are committed to changing the conversation about God within their local neighbourhood. They live on a street that has less than 30 houses and they are practically asking one question:
Can an entire street be won for Christ?
Jon says: “I believe that the answer to this question is a resounding YES, but I also believe that unless we change the way we do things we will continue to get the same results that we have been getting. So at The Urban House, we are following the principles for mission laid out in Luke 10:
1. We eat with our neighbours.
2. We endeavour to heal the people before us – meet their needs.
3. And when prompted to tell our neighbours that the Kingdom of God is near to them.
Jo Stockley, Jo is Jon’s wife, best friend and greatest critic. It is said that behind every great man is a very surprised woman, and we will say no more than that. Jo has a background in nursing and is currently working in a local residential home. Both Jo and Jon love to have people visit them, to share the amazing gifts that God has given them.
Originally, Jo comes from Chester and so to be back in her native Cheshire is a real joy to her heart.
