About John

Throughout my whole life, I thought I was a good person and that being good was my ticket to heaven. At 21, I was living a very sinful lifestyle and wanted nothing to do with God. One weekend while giving my brother Matt a ride home, he shared the Gospel with me and I received Christ.

Right after I was saved my brother's pastor recommended I attend a church near where I lived in Webster New York. It was there I met Pam in the singles group, and it was there that I first started working in youth ministry. It was through a mission conference at this church that God called me into full-time ministry. Two years after Pam and I were married God directed me to the Word of Life Bible Institute to study for a year. After graduation we headed to Southern California to start our ministry with Word of Life Youth Ministires.

About Pam

I was saved in Sunday School when my teacher shared with me that I was a sinner. She shared that Jesus paid the penalty for my sins, and I trusted Christ that day. I attended Word of Life summer camp in tenth grade and dedicated my life to full-time service at the campfire that week. I met John at Webster Bible church in the singles group. While we were dating we worked together in the youth group for four years.

Romans 5:8, But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
