John grew up in Dallas, Texas and joined a Presbyterian Church as a communicant at age 12. He and his wife, Sharon, met in the kindergarten of that church. They have been married 40 years, and have one son and four grandchildren.
In 1991 the church, where they met, split and John helped start a PCA church with 1,000 other people.
In1996 John and Sharon moved to Lander, the site of the only PCA church in Wyoming at that time. After 15 years, that church split and he helped start Grace Reformed Fellowship, OPC.
It has been an honor and a blessing for John to serve as a Ruling Elder here. His gifts are encouragement and teaching and he loves to use them to advance the kingdom of Christ.
