John and his family joined the GCC team in Spring 2012 after serving in youth ministry positions in Oklahoma and Texas. John became a believer on his 20th birthday after years of posing as a church member who had no saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! 


He received his bachelors from Oklahoma State University ('96) and his MACE from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary ('15). 

He has been married to the love of his life, Jennifer, since 1993. He was 19, she was 18! 


Jennifer has her bachelors from Oklahoma State University ('96) and her Masters in Learning Diagnostician from Houston Baptist University ('03). She not only has been in ministry with John since 1999, she also is a Diagnostician working with families to help students achieve their full potential. She enjoys her babies and talking on the phone!


They have 4 great kids: Colton('98), Katelynn('00), Kenley('09), and Crew('11).
