John has been in full-time ministry since 1991 as a pastor, missionary, and worship leader in three different continents: North America, South America, and Europe. The call to ministry came to him when he was 14 years old, and since then, God has opened doors for him to teach His word in churches, conferences, camps, and colleges. His preaching style is expositional with a strong emphasis of Christ in the Biblical text. Today, he serves at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa as a teaching pastor and overseer of the young adults ministry called OPEN.
On staff since: August 2012
Favorite verse: “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
