South Central Region Representative
John left his hometown in Boston, with his wife Arleta, to be a dorm director at Houston Baptist University in 2004. There, in graduate school, he met the youth pastor from the Sugar Land Vineyard where Arleta and John began attending, then led a small group, and then went on staff for 3 years as an associate pastor over compassion ministries. John and Arleta were then sent out to San Antonio to plant Mission Vineyard in 2011. Their call was to a specific neighborhood downtown and then to send out church plants all over the city. Their desire is to send out 17 churches by 2035. John is also involved in Vineyard church planting in Argentina.
John and Arleta love spending time with their two kids and do their best to adventure to Maine or Padre Island National Seashore for vacation.
