I am a member of Trinity United Church in North Bay.
I was raised in an evangelical church in Newmarket, Ontario, and my messages will have an evangelical overtone. I joined the United Church of Canada in 1973 when I was baptized, along with my first 2 children, in Queensville, Ontario. I moved to North Bay in 1974, and have been active in the work of the church since that time.
I am very proud to be a graduate of the Licensed Lay Worship Leadership class of 2015. My belief is that we are all gifted in one way or another, for the sharing of the Lord’s message, remembering that “we are not alone”.
My wife Linda jokingly quips at times when I get on a rant that; “that’s the gospel by John”.
So that is what I call it when I lead a service; you will be getting, “The Gospel by John”.
I look forward to sharing the “Gospel by John” with you.
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me! Philippians 4: 13
I am open to invitations from anywhere in the Regional Council but primarily within an hour and half drive of North Bay.
