John came to California from Spokane, Washington where he served as college pastor at another Faith Bible Church (unaffiliated). Upon relocating to this area, John served as the equipping pastor at Las Brisas Bible Fellowship in Murrieta. In the Fall of 2003, a team of men (including John) planted Faith Bible Church, and he’s been serving here as a pastor ever since. John is a graduate of The Master’s Seminary and Southern Seminary.
John and his wife, Beth, first met in the 90’s in Spokane. Their relationship officially started on the last day of a short-term mission trip to Venezuela, and they have been married since 2001. In the last few years, God has blessed them with the birth of Abby, Izzy, and, more recently, John. In contrast to most Californians, they like rainy days more than sunny ones!
