PASTOR JOHN RICHARD

Pastor John grew up in the Philadelphia area and is consequently a passionate fan of all Philadelphia sports teams. He had the privilege of going to Cedarville University where he got his bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in Chemistry. His aim was to go to medical school, but after graduating college, the Lord changed his heart, giving him a huge passion for ministry. So, he headed out to California and attended the Master’s Seminary where he graduated in 2001.

During that time he met his precious wife, Jamie and they were married in 2000. The Lord has gifted them with 9 children (5 girls and 4 boys). The Lord has blessed John with the privilege of serving in youth ministry for 18 years and as a senior pastor for 7 ½ years.  Please take a moment to hear Pastor John talk about a passage in 1 Corinthians 4 that has left a great impact on his life.

This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.”  (1 Corinthians 4:1-2)
