I first heard Jon at a youth conference in El Paso, Texas and then more recently at Steubenville San Diego. I was struck by how prayerfully he leads worship, how energetic the music is, and how humble he is off stage. Truly Jon is a gifted worship leader and musician not just because he can play guitar and sing beautifully, but because he is a servant of the Lord. What sets him apart from other worship leaders is his ability to instantly and joyfully connect with people and serve how the Lord leads for any specific audience. Highly recommend his ministry!.

 

- Noelle Garcia, Catholic Musician & Speaker

Jon is one of the most highly effective worship leaders I have ever worked with in my national speaking ministry. He is authentic and real. He is technically talented, prays as he leads, and most importantly, knows how to help others pray with him. This combination of talent, humility and leadership are the keys to authentic worship. When you worship with Jon the focus is so much on Jesus that you forget about him. I highly recommend him without reservation. You will not be disappointed

 

Scott Anthony, Catholic Speaker

As a 15 year old kid trying to discern God’s will for my life, Jon’s music ministry, his authenticity, and his love for our Lord helped me tremendously in that discernment which eventually lead me to the Priesthood. I am forever grateful to Jon for using his God given gifts and talents to evangelize and inspire.

 

- Fr. Matthew Conley, Archdiocese of Boston

I first experienced the music of Jon Niven at a praise night he was leading with his band in Boston. I was pleasantly surprised how prayerful and musical the entire evening was. Being a worship musician myself, who has had a lot of experience with a lot of different groups, I thought to myself: “this guy gets it!” I would highly recommend Jon for any event or job leading worship

 

Craig Colson, Catholic Musician & Speaker

We had the pleasure of working with Jon at the 2008 Sydney World Youth Days. His sweet nature, beautiful voice and guitar music were enough to lead about 800 Dutch young adults in praise & worship during the official Dutch catechesis morning session. Jon is a very talented musician, and above all an awesome guy to work with! Great communication beforehand, knows how to read a crowd and act accordingly. I highly recommend Jon!
