John grew up as a missionary kid in Brazil for eighteen years. He is married to Teresa. She has been a school teacher, and children’s and women’s ministry coordinator. She and John are both avid University of Tennessee fans. They have two daughters. Sarah is married to Matt Hinson and they live in Winston-Salem with their children, Addison and Grant. Rachel is married to Kevin Boger and they live in Winston-Salem with their children Charlie and Nash.

John’s call to ministry came when he was a teen. After graduating from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a Bachelor of Arts, he graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, with a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry. Before coming to Mountain View Baptist Church in 2012, John pastored at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Mt Carmel, TN, First Baptist Church Dickson, TN, First Baptist Church Alexandria, VA, and First Baptist Church Clinton, MS.

When John is not ministering at church, he can be found hunting, running, sporting clays, or at the gym. When playing golf, he hopes Teresa won’t beat him, again. Go, Vols!
