Pastor John was born and raised in Fairfield County, Connecticut. After years of his neighbor inviting him to Youth Group in high school, he finally went and never left. Through relationships with church leaders and other peers, John realized that Jesus was God and a relationship with him was the purpose of his life.
After high school, John was a student leader with Intervaristy Christian Fellowship at Southern Connecticut State University, where he graduated with a degree in Physical Education. While being a teacher after college, John was a volunteer youth leader at the same church in which he became a Christian. John soon became the volunteer Director of the Middle School Ministry and then the volunteer Director of High School and Middle School Ministries.
In 2020 John Graduated from Baptist Bible Seminary with a Masters of Arts in Religion with a concentration in Apologetics. It was around this time God started tugging at his heart to pursue full time ministry.
After 10 years as a PE Teacher and over 14 years doing volunteer ministry in Connecticut, in Janurary 2023 John took the Lead Pastor Position at Craigville Bible Church.
John has been married to his wife, Rachel, since 2015 and has two daughters, Hannah and Aly. Pastor John loves reading theology/apologetics, eating buffalo wings, and playing ultimate frisbee. His sports teams are University of Michigan Football, NY Yankees Baseball, and NY Giants Football.
