Pastor John was born and raised in the south, where he grew up in the church and watched his parents faithfully worship and serve the Lord. At the age of seven, John asked Jesus to be his Savior.
After graduating from Auburn University in 1999, John and his wife Amy were married and moved to Colorado. After a few months, they began attending Horizon Christian Fellowship Denver, a church committed to the Word. Under the tutelage of Pastor Dave Love, John served as both a worship leader and a home fellowship teacher for 10 years. During this time, the Lord also blessed John and Amy with three beautiful children.
In 2010, John felt God’s calling to plant a church in Golden, Colorado and was ordained as a pastor through Horizon Denver. For a year and a half John served as the pastor of Horizon Golden and was blessed to see the congregation grow both in fellowship and spiritual maturity. In February 2012, the Lord called John away from Horizon Golden to become the pastor at Legacy Christian Fellowship. Though the move was unexpected, John learned through the process that when the Lord says “move,” you MOVE!
John believes strongly that the Christian walk must be shepherded by the Word, and he is committed to teaching the Bible chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse. John also keeps his eyes fixed on the Calvary Chapel vision: Win, Disciple, Send. WIN people to the Lord, DISCIPLE them to follow Christ, and SEND them out to witness for Christ by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
