The Morning Show with Jon & Russ

Jon Engen

Co-Host of Life In the Morning

I have just over 30 years of radio under my belt… along with a lot of really early morning wakeup calls and hundreds of dozens of donuts.  Jodi and I share our home with an 80 pound chocolate Lab and two crazy Dachshunds.  (Who just happen to think that they are also Chocolate Labs!)   Walking, biking and napping are at the top of my list of fun things to do. I am also an ordained Minister with 25+ years of Pastoral experience.  I love Christian radio beyond words and am thrilled to be a part of Life FM!

Favorite Christian band/artist of all time: No question about this one!  Michael W. Smith

Something I love that no one else does: White Castle burgers!!!  LOVE ‘EM!

Favorite movie quote: “Fortunately I keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency!”  Foghorn Leghorn

What food will be served in heaven: See the “Something I love that no one else does” answer.

Favorite Bible verse: Galatians 2:20

” I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

South Carolina born and raised, Pastor Russ followed God’s call to Bakersfield to make his home and start a church.  He is the senior pastor of Hingepoint Church here in Bakersfield, which owns and meets in the historic Nile Theater downtown.  He and his wife Morgan, along with their 3 kids, love this community, Chick-Fil-A, and making the name of Jesus famous.
