John’s roots come from a small farming community in Morocco, Indiana. On the 100-year-owned family farm, John learned maintenance and repair skills and the art of working hard, being attentive to detail, doing things right the first time, and the concept of reaping what you sow. John graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Agriculture. At that time, his course in life changed from farming the land to ministering to people; John then spent the next 25 years serving as a minister. He enjoys working with his hands, fixing and repairing what’s broken and attending to details behind the scenes.
