John is joining us from North Carolina, by way of Detroit Michigan. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Organ Performance from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
John has been serving faith communities in the role of both organist and choir director for over a decade. In addition to musical leadership in worship, he has served as the pianist for Michigan Opera Theater’s Children’s Chorus as well as a staff pianist for Madonna University (Livonia, Michigan) and other opera companies in Metro Detroit and the Bay Area.
When not with us, John serves as Campaign Coordinator for Catholic Charities, Santa Rosa. Prior his current post, he has worked as a field organizer for other statewide and national political campaigns.
Above all he values leading invigorating worship music with passion, integrity, and a healthy dose of mysticism that ignites our faith. He was raised in the United Methodist Church, but is proud to call First Presbyterian Church his church home.
John now lives in Guerneville, California.
