John grew up in northwest Washington State and has three younger sisters who still live there. He was a camp counselor at a Lutheran camp in Bellingham, WA and served full time as a Challenge Course Coordinator. In 2015, after being in camp ministry for nearly five years, John decided to pursue a position as a youth director in a congregational setting so he moved to rural Iowa to serve as a Children, Youth, and Family Director. He was married in August 2017 to his wife, Kelsey. John holds an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and is now a student at University of Houston-Downtown studying Humanities concentrating on Religious Studies with the hope of continuing to seminary in the future. When John is out of the office and has free time he enjoys watching television, swimming, rock climbing, or simply having conversation with friends.
