John came to Grace Covenant in 2019 having pastored reformed Presbyterian churches in New Orleans, Opelousas (LA), Memphis (TN), and Columbia (SC). Since 1998 he has happily served cross-denominationally, being ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), later serving with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (ARP) and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC).

John became a Christian as a student at Clemson University having responded to the gospel of Jesus Christ and was discipled as a student through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. After graduation he joined the Staff of Campus Crusade professionally and served at the University of Florida. Sensing a call to serve Christ’s church through the pastoral ministry, he moved back home to Columbia, SC where he earned his M.Div at Columbia International University (1998) and later his D.Min at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS (2012).

John and his lovely bride Lydia have been married for over a quarter century and have 5 children together - 4 sons and 1 daughter ranging in ages 24-9. Lydia is a student and teacher of the Christian classical education philosophy and enjoys helping and encouraging others to disciple their children and impart to them the skills of learning.
