Jony Bertin in classroom setting

After Theological training and church youth work in the UK, Jony and Jenny returned home to Argentina. For several years, Jony served as Rector of the Anglican church of St. Bartholomew in Rosario, focusing on systematic Bible teaching, one-to-one Bible study and disciple-making. He then started teaching The Elements of New Testament Greek remotely for the Centro de Etudios Pastorales (CEP) in Santiago, Chile.  In early 2022 the family moved to Santiago so that Jony could take up a full time position at CEP. He continues to teach New Testament Greek and is currently compiling a Greek Manual.

They have three young children, Felipe, Emma and Matias. The role is non-stipendiary and St John’s are helping to support them. This work will equip Jony to help develop training in the Anglican Church in Argentina where he presides over the Diocesan training committee. This fits really well with St. John’s vision of making disciple-making disciples.

Further information can be obtained from Phil and Rosemary Tadman who have long-standing links with South America.
