Our 30th anniversary, April 2015

Thank you for visiting my home page!  Take a look around.  And let me know if this site is helpful to you. Email me at JonMutchler@gmail.com
My life begins and is centered around my family and my faith. Diane and I have been married since 1985 and have seven wonderful children who are the joy and pride of our lives. Diane and I also just recently became proud grandparents.

JonMutchler4Diane and I were invited to move to Ferndale (from Blaine) in 1987 to start the Ferndale Alliance Church. JOnDianeLongHair2013 I have been the pastor and we have together shared the leadership duties of this congregation now for over 25 years.  If you are looking for a friendly neighborhood church we would be honored if you’d be our guest any Sunday.


Jon’s CD: Still Prone To Wander

Piano has always been a big part of my life.  When we moved to Ferndale I bought my first piano and started teaching. Jon Mutchler 2014 My guess is that I’ve instructed hundreds of Whatcom kids and adults.  I also get to perform now and again and had the pleasure of being the house pianist at Semiahmoo Resort (playing weekends at their nice restaurant) for 17 years. I am also available at times to perform for your special event or function (wedding, corporate party) and I have seven CDs of solo piano music available at my Music Store.


From Blaine Jazz Festival (Drayton Music Festival) 2012

Each year since 2002 I have been on the staff of the Drayton Harbor Music Festival (formerly, Blaine Jazz Festival).  I perform with terrific musicians from around the world, introduce original music, teach jazz and music theory to youngsters, and direct a student combo or two.  One of the funnest weeks of the year for me!  (Side comment:  my father, director of many music festivals, would have been pleased!)


Ferndale City Council Service

We love Ferndale and along the way I felt it would be a good thing to do what I could to shape and contribute to Ferndale’s future over the long term. So, I ran for city council and was recently reelected to a second term.  I love the opportunity to contribute and serve a community that’s growing smart in so many ways.  If you live in Ferndale you know how fortunate you are! Anyway, I have a city council/election page that may be of interest to you if you are concerned about city hall, local politics, and governing issues. Also, I provide “city updates” to friends and supporters quarterly, and if you wish to receive those just drop me a note.

Jon & Maddie finishing the 2014 Bellingham Bay Marathon

As I was approaching 50 (I was born in 1959) and was asked to participate on our church’s Ski to Sea team I recognized the need to get fit and take better care of myself.  2009 was the year I started to get “active” again.  Since that time I have completed countless 5ks, about 20 triathlons, a Half Ironman, three marathons and several 13.1s.  I like being healthy. I enjoy being a member of The Locker Room Fitness Gym in Ferndale.

Thank you for stopping by.
