About John

I grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania. During my undergraduate years, I attended Wheaton College. For graduate work, I studied at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. My wife, Lauren, and I met in North Carolina and married several years later in 2006. We have two sons, Cohen and Charlie. Lauren and I each took part in HoneyRock’s graduate assistant program from 2007-08. Bookending that period, I worked as a coastal geologist across the eastern seaboard for a total of nearly 8 years. At HoneyRock, I serve now as the Finance and Advancement Director.

The Lord has blessed me with parents who love Jesus, and I accepted Him as Lord and Savior at an early age. Learning to understand my identity in Jesus and submitting to His will has resulted in a life transformed by the gospel.

What I enjoy most about working at HoneyRock is the blessing of being involved in and experiencing countless examples of its mission fulfilled faithfully. God has and continues to develop His story on a daily basis that involves the people, facilities, and creative order unique to HoneyRock. I can’t help but be excited to enter into and play a role in that.
