John and Kim grew up in different parts of the country, John in Oklahoma City and Kim in south Alabama. God, in His sovereignty, brought them together while John was ministering in Richland, Mississippi. They were married in 2006 and are now blessed with two wonderful children. Isaac is 4 and Isabel is 2.
For the past 15 years, John has been leading students to the Lord through various types of Student Ministry whether serving on church staff or through traveling evangelism. John graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in Telecommunications and then went on to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary to earn his Masters of Divinity. Kim graduated from University of Mobile with a degree in Business Administration. John served as a Student Pastor until June of 2012 when he clearly heard from God that He wanted them to plant a church in Oklahoma City. God, in His faithfulness, brought John to Pinelake Church as the Church Planting Resident. John and Kim are excited to see what God is going to do in OKC this upcoming year. They feel so blessed to be a part of this incredible calling to lead others to a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
