Jon Hauser
Founder | Prairie Heights
Jon grew up in Williston, ND, in the home of a great leader, his mother! In 1989 he graduated from North Dakota State University with a BS in Electrical Engineering and in 1994 from Nazarene Theological Seminary with a MA in religious education.He worked as a high voltage substation engineer for 20 years for Burns and McDonnell and Ulteig Engineers. In 2000, he transitioned from an engineering career to a pastor, as he and his wife started a new church called Prairie Heights in Fargo, ND. Prairie Heights has grown from a few friends in a living room to a dynamic family of over 4,500 people and 16 full-time staff members. His passion is to help every person maximize their life impact. The formula he uses is “Character” times “Competence” times “Leadership Level” equals your “Life Impact”. His primary leadership textbooks are “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” by John C. Maxwell and the Bible.

Brandon will hit the Main Stage with James Mason of Datto and together they will discuss how business downtime is much more common than you may think.

There are ways to protect your business from this loss of production time and data. They will explore real-world examples of downtime, and how you can protect yourself with a true business continuity solution – High Point Networks’ DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service). Included in their session will be the infamous Datto Disaster Demo, where they will demonstrate a complete recovery from a simulated network disaster using the Datto Siris technology.
