Hi I’m Jon Paul Robles, co-owner and operator of SIMA343, an LLC media group founded in 2005 that produces audio / video content. I’m also a pastor of a local church, Oakpointe Christian Center in New Castle, Pa. From a young age I gravitated towards both working with others and the creative arts. Ultimately, it was my love for the art forms of recording and filming that led me to audio engineering and digital cinematography. It is always an honor to work with clients and help them tell their stories through a full spectrum of roles and functions. Whether it’s filming, editing, or composing a soundtrack, I share a deep passion for the process and project. Based out of Ohio, our company (SIMA343) has been fortunate to do both production and post-production work for national and local organizations, as well as countless independent projects.
After graduating with Bachelors of Arts in Telecommunications (2003) Diana and I both felt inspired to push a little further in our interest. So we moved down to Orlando, Florida, to attend Full Sail University where I studied recording and music production and Diana studied film. Our professional careers began by filming and editing in both the corporate, independent and television industries. Since then I’ve become a digital jack-of-all-trades working equally behind the camera, behind the glass as an audio engineer, behind the sequencer as a composer, and behind the timeline as an editor.
Being raised in a rich spiritual tradition, I’ve always been drawn to ministry. After working for many years in the church my father founded in 1973, I was ordained through CMIglobal and in 2013 was installed as the lead pastor of Oakpointe. I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know others and walk with them on their spiritual journey. In 2016 my wife Diana and I were ordained into the diaconate through The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches where we have learned to cherish the liturgical year, the sacramental imagination as well as receive ongoing eduction.
We love and rep Ohio. Currently residing near Youngstown, Diana and I are enjoying the great adventure of raising two amazing and wonderful children, Jon Luke and Maudie. As a dad, I find no greater happiness than watching our children’s personalities develop and blossom, something I think most parents enjoy.
