Kanon was saved as a teenager and felt calling him into missions soon after getting saved. A couple of years later at 21 years old he began taking classes at the Our Generation Training Center at Vision Baptist Church. He met his wife Nancy there, and after finishing classes and getting engaged he spent six months in Dalian, China doing a six-month internship for on-the-field training. When he came back to the states in the fall of 2015 he and Nancy were married and began deputation.
Kanon and Nancy arrived in China after finishing deputation at the beginning of 2018. They spent approximately 2 years in China learning the language and serving in an under ground church. As of fall 2020, they have finished up their language school time and look forward to planting churches in mainland China.
