John graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible in 2012. Shortly after he was ordained in 2014, John and his family moved to Northeast Ohio from Greenville, South Carolina. John has a heart for church planting, and it was this desire that brought their family to join a church-planting team in Orrville. Since that time, and by God’s grace, Cross View Church was established with the goal of reaching the community of Orrville with the gospel. John’s desire is to equip people to grow in Christlikeness through evangelism, discipleship, and the teaching of God’s Word. John and his wife Kristin have three children, Caleb, Madelyn, and Anna Grace.
