Have worked alongside YWAM Flathead Reservation since 2004. In that time John has spoken at DTS’s, helped pioneer ways to impact the reservation, made connections that motivated deeper involvement with Christ and encouraged efforts to better reach indigenous peoples. After being saved in 1993 John was hungry for more of what God had for him and his young family. Throughout the years before they found their home here with YWAM, John and Milissa led out numerous outreaches, taught youth groups, started services and advanced churches. It was in 2007 when they were really yearning to go into full time missions. That year John heard from the Lord that 2013 would be the year that they go into full time missions. Today John teaches on numerous topics, but his favorite topic is cultural diversity. They have settled here in the mission valley with their son and daughter and 3 grandsons; as well as their niece and nephew that they are raising up. He and Milissa both have huge hearts for motivating peoples of all ages, backgrounds and tribes to strive for what the Lord has for them.
