"Your teaching changed my life!"
That's John's passion- to teach the Bible in such a way that it becomes a source of life for you. He loves to bring the Bible to life and connect it to your life, so that it helps you live the life God created you for.
John enjoys his life too...
When he’s not preaching or teaching, you might find him at a local coffee shop meeting with and encouraging other local ministers. Or you could find him hanging out at home with his wife and partner in ministry, Louise, his closest friend for 30 years. Or perhaps you’ll find him throwing the ball for his dogs.
He loves Mexican food, a quiet day in the woods, his family, but most of all John loves to help people see how God’s word speaks to their life and his greatest thrill in life is to see people come alive to the joy of walking with God honestly, humbly, and transformationally.
