Jon & Marissa Loewen


As a single man, Jon worked in the maintenance department at Headquarters from the spring of 2011-2012. He enjoyed his term at NYP, and he knew when he left, that he wanted to come back again in the future. Jon met his future wife through an NYP coworker, and Jon and Marissa were married in 2012. They settled in a little house in town on the Manitoba prairies, where they spent the first four years of their married life. Caden joined their family in 2016, bringing much joy and laughter with his arrival. During those four years, they prayed about going on the mission field, but the timing never seemed right. In early 2017, God opened the door for them to fill the role of houseparents at Headquarters, and within six weeks' time, they packed up their belongings, sold their home, Jon quit his job as a supervisor for a local heavy construction company, and they moved to NYP. Jon and Marissa bring a family atmosphere to the single staff at Headquarters, and the many visitors who come to the Guesthouse.

Jon and Marissa enjoy camping, the outdoors, hockey, music, good coffee, and spending time with family and friends.


Give me ears to hear Your Spirit
Give me feet to follow through
Give me hands to touch the hurting
And the faith to follow You
Give me grace to be a servant
Give me mercy for the lost
Give me passion for Your glory
Give me passion for the cross
And I will go where there are no easy roads
Leave the comforts that I know
I will go and let this journey be my home
I will go
