John grew up in Cleveland, but don't hold that against him, he is now firmly planted in Harrison and calls this home. Since moving to Harrison in 2009, LifeSpring has been his church home and family. After serving in several volunteer roles, John was called into part-time ministry as a student minister and then into full-time ministry as an Associate Pastor in April of 2015. His 20 year coaching background, passion and energy levels for students is very contagious and fun to watch. Most days you will see John in the hallways, lunchrooms, or gyms at our local schools, simply being a reflection of Christ or a goofy friend to students and teachers alike. When he is not in the schools, he is out in our community fostering relationships with business leaders, other churches and families. The love of a neighbor is what led John to Christ and John shows that same type of love for the lost and those seeking for a new life. John's favorite moment in ministry is when someone "gets it" and understands that they own their faith and their relationship with Jesus Christ is to be shared with others.
John likes to get out and play anything with a ball or stick. He is adventurous fun and loves to spend time with his family. He and his wife Angela have been married 16 years and have two children together, Cara and Ben. He also has a daughter Alicia that lives in the Cleveland area. His life verse is James 1:22. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. In other words: GO DO IT!
