John has a desire to care for the people who care for God’s people. He knows firsthand how difficult it can be for a pastor to find times for refreshing in the crosshairs of family (he and his loving wife, Lorrie, have reared 4 children) and satisfying pastoral responsibilites.
A graduate of Northern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Doctor of Ministry focused on “Leadership Through Preaching”, John also earned a Master of Divinity from Howard University School of Divinity. Celebrating his 25th year of preaching and teaching Jesus Christ in 2017, John has served full-time in churches in Washington, D.C., Boston, and for the the last 15 years, has served as Senior Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church of Milwaukee.
Through Soul Shepherding, Inc’s “To Love Christ” training, John received much needed refreshing for his ministry and new understanding of major events in his childhood and adult life which has further prepared him to do the same for others. He is regularly called upon by area pastors to lead workshops, preach pastoral and church anniversaries, and just to pray and talk.
