hairy creatures crawling on my back

anything named after a goldfish

currently, john is the pastor of student ministries at "the wayk" the student conversation at harbor community church in folsom california.  if you are around the area, look him up.


dream community of faith; one formed out of a deep passion and rebellion - a passion for christ and helping the lost, and a rebellion against the status quo


Excellence Honors God and Motivates People: I am committed to Christ and Outreach, and believe we need to “get off our butts, and into the streets” to share the Gospel with those seeking to find God in their lives.  I firmly believe in excellence in ministry, worship and all things we do for God


personal mission


  To be part of a community of faith looking to be a relevant and regional force in the community for Christ. Where, as its DNA, the community desires a vision, and plan, to help develop followers in their individual walk with Christ and seek to plant other churches over time


personal vision statement:  To bring the Gospel to this generation of not-yet-believers in a dynamic, relevant way; and be outside the box


key life scripture:  "Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympatric, be loving, be compassionate, be humble.  That goes for all of you, no exceptions.  No retaliation.  No sharp-tongued sarcasm.  Instead, bless - that's your job, bless.  You'll be a blessings and also get a blessing." (1 Peter 3:8-9, The Message)
