Pastor John gave his life to Christ as a 10-year-old in a new church that was meeting Sunday nights in a firehall. This was his call into ministry, although it was a few years after that he grasped this message from the Lord. He grew up in the Pittsburgh area as a lover of all of its sports teams, especially the Steelers and Penguins.
With a vision to build a biblically balanced, fully functional, missional community that equips the saints, wins the lost, and changes the world, John joined Bay Point as Pastor in 2015. John’s pastoral strategy consists of these guiding principles that, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, will carry out his vision:
- Biblical preaching and teaching of the “full counsel of God—in season and out of season”
- Develop the behaviors of a “Level 5” leader:
- Share an inspired vision
- Model the way
- Challenge the status quo
- Enable others to act
- Encourage the heart
Pastoral service brings extreme joy to Pastor John, and Bay Point members feel his joy and passion through his sermons and messages. Delivered in a meaningful yet fun and joyous manner, Pastor John delivers the word of the Bible and enables the growth of the church of Jesus Christ. Join Pastor John at his next service; you’ll have some fun!
