John's passion is leading people in corporate and creative worship.  He graduated from Southern Nazarene University with a Bachelor's degree in Music Business.  He has been a worship leader for over 18 years in the Church of the Nazarene.  He came to Springs First in August of 2009.  

John married Cynthia in 1997 and they have 3 children. Cynthia loves Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and spending time with their kids.  Her favorite movie is Monsters Inc. Trey, their son, loves anything percussion related and is a New England Patriots fan. KaLee, their daughter, loves to play the flute, wants to be a band director and is a four-sport athlete.  Ellie, their other daughter, is known for being "sparkly"and has been mistaken for Merida (from "Brave") many times.  The entire family enjoys going to any Disney park they can and when they are not in a park, they are dreaming about it.

Besides leading worship, John enjoys being with his family, everything Apple, listening to music of all styles, and reading leadership books.
