Learn to Live in God's Presence
What I do
Everything John does is to equip people to live in the reality of God’s Presence.
John teaches others how to live in relationship with God, how that life translates into the real world, and how each of us is an essential extension of God’s plan.
John has been involved in music for the majority of his life. He has written hundreds of songs, produced dozens of albums, and lead thousands into God’s Presence through worship.
John passionately writes on living a life of intimacy with God, how to learn His ways, and essentials for every believer in Jesus. His writing is in blogs, magazines, and books.
Although I was raised in a loving, caring family I wasn’t taught about God. At the age of 19, when Jesus came into my life I had a radical life-changing encounter with the reality of His manifested Presence.
From that point on I pursued the Lord to know Him through a lifestyle of prayer and worship with a high value for the scriptures. I have many memories of spending devotional time in my dorm room during college practicing the Presence of God.
Since I had no church history, I had no understanding there were different types of churches or denominations. After years of my own journey to discover the different expressions of Christianity; I found there were sincere followers of Christ in just about every church I was blessed to be a part of over the years.
Around 1994 I experienced life-changing encounters with God through the revivals being poured out in in mid 90s. Through these encounters with God I began to create worship music as a new, fresh sound was created in my heart – being inspired to create music to help people experience God in a tangible way.
In 1999 I began creating soaking instrumentals as well as working full-time for Ministry to the Nations, the ministry of James and Michal Ann Goll, where I gained valuable experience and a better understanding of how ministries operated.
In 2004, after five years with Ministry to the Nations I launched out on my own to do itinerate ministry both speaking and leading worship, participating in other events, creating music, both instrumental and worship. These were years of growth where I learned to step out of the place of comfort into roles where I had never had confidence before – truly growing in faith to be all God had called me to be. In 2009 I was married to my wonderful wife, Brandi. We started a church in Hamilton, Ohio that we pastored for two years learning many lessons concerning how to have a healthy church, as well as the importance of building relationships through genuine community while keeping the Presence of God at the center.
Since then we’ve been hosted many ministry events and have been privileged to work with amazing people who have a heart to pursue God. Today we reside in Cincinnati, Ohio. [view resume]
