John and Barbara were pastor and wife for 21 years at two different congregations. They were in Windham, N. H. and on Long Island, New York. In 1998 they felt a call to mission work and left the parish ministry to go on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ. John’s main responsibility has been focusing in various ways on the training of pastors and Christian leaders and laypeople in various countries. He has traveled to and taught in Russia and Costa Rica many times. He has also taught in Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, The Bahamas, and most recently in Cuba.
He also travels throughout the U. S. to various congregations offering special teaching weekends, retreats, and leadership training. Working with Third Millennium Ministries he has also developed audio training seminars for pastors and Christian leaders and laypeople which are on their website and available worldwide. Some of those seminars have also been translated into Persian/Farsi and have been broadcast by Word of Hope radio ministry into Iran and Afghanistan. The Persian/Farsi versions have also been posted on the Persian Christian website of Talim Ministries.
