John is part of the team that is planting Grace in the City, in the inner city of Minneapolis. This church is dedicated to bringing transformation and restoration through a life giving relationship with Jesus Christ; to the men, women and youth of the inner city.
Our around the world ministry is with Haiti Teen Challenge. As a member of the Board of Directors, we are committed to changing the nation of Haiti, one man and one woman at a time.
Drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, sex trafficked victims, men, women, teens, and their families have been left in utter despair with no hope or direction. Navigating through the recovery process and the everyday trials and tribulations is daunting to say the least, and takes an army to surround a family to achieve success.
Being on the front line, on a daily basis, helping men, women, and families navigate through all of the unfortunate circumstances from losing a job, home and their dignity, to helping a family when their teen child attempts to kill themselves, doesn't come with a handbook" on how to deal with these situations, but by the grace and mercy of our Great God, we can come alongside them, loving them, teaching them, and discipling them, as we walk out our faith in Jesus!
