Pastor John

Pastor JohnHello everyone. ¬†Pastor John here ūüôā

I have never been very good at “bio’s” because I am never quite sure what to say. ¬†If you say too little folks often want to know more – and if you say too much it can come across as aggrandizement. ¬†So, I will briefly mention the things that are most important to me.

I love being the pastor of Calvary Chapel Central! ¬†Have there been rough patches along this twenty-five year road? ¬†Of course. ¬†When I was called to this ministry at Central, the Lord made it clear to me that I would face some of the toughest times in my life, but that I would also face some of the most wonderful. ¬†That has certainly been the case. ¬†So I want to say, “Thank you!” to all who have enriched my life! ¬†And “Thank you!” for letting me be your pastor all these years.

I love being a husband to the love of my life – Becky – my beautiful wife. ¬†I love being a dad even though I have made mistakes and wish there could be a few “do-overs”. ¬†I love being a grandpa. ¬†There is nothing that compares to having a little one come running up to you so excited they can hardly contain themselves, or having them fall asleep in your arms. ¬†The first time I heard “Papa” – my grandson could have asked for just about anything and I would have granted his wish! ¬†And I love the lasting friendships the Lord has allowed me to have through the years.

I love Jesus and I must add that without being a Christian man Рnone of the above would have the same meaning and purpose in my life.  Jesus just makes everything a lot sweeter!  I am grateful for His love and mercy and forgiveness.

When  Calvary Central started as a home Bible study in the home of Paul and Ginger Hannah Рmany years ago Рnone of us had any idea what the Lord had planned, but I am so thankful that we stepped out in faith.
