PastorJohn and his wife Angel wife grew up in Tucson and both graduated from CDO. After getting married young (21 and 19), John worked as a Detention Officer in Phoenix. They moved to Princeton, NJ for seminary and ended up staying there for 12 years, where their two exuberant and joy-filled children, Camille and Soren were born, and John served in his first pastoral calling. They loved the time in Princeton: especially the beautiful seasons (spring in Princeton is idyllic), life in a small historic college town, and their church community.
They were surprised and delighted to have God call their family back to Tucson and to the family at New Life Bible Fellowship in the summer of 2015. In returning to Tucson they are blessed to unite with their parents, sisters, and their families. Angel and John love Jesus Christ and want to live lives that act as a megaphone for their Sovereign Savior, responding to God’s call and then calling others to repentance, salvation, and transformed lives through the explosive grace of our Triune God. They can’t wait to see the great things God has in store for New Life, our neighborhoods, and Tucson. John loves sports, especially softball and basketball. He loves reading and music. He has participated in numerous mission trips around the world.
