John has been a licensed pastor in the Alliance for over 40 years. He first attended Risen King in 2008.

He has a BS in Bible and Theology from Nyack College.
John and his wife Deborah have been married since 1977 and have a daughter, two grandsons and three grand-dogs who all live in Redding.
"The best advice I’ve ever received is: 'Whatever we have on this earth is only on loan from God, so hold it loosely and with care.'”
