John has served as an ordained minister and biblical counselor on church staff for over 30 years. He and his wife Anne have been married over 22 years and have seen firsthand the needs of vocational pastoral leaders. John has the ability to discern the needs at hand and bring hope to the most difficult of issues. John has the heart of a pastor and desires to see that God’s leaders are heard and have a voice during the most challenging times. John and Anne have been called to minister to fellow pastors, their wives and families. They have lived in Nashville, TN since 1996 and have three children: a daughter at Samford University, a daughter at Texas Christian University and a son in high school.

John has said, “I have seen and experienced the silent hurt that ministers experience, the unrealistic expectations of family demands and the world of false perceptions and reality from inside the church. God has called me to serve my fellow pastors in a new and unique role as counselor, advocate and friend.”

John also serves as a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 Listed General Civil & Family Mediator. John is a member of the Nashville Bar Association (committee member of the Alternative Resolution Dispute Commission) and the Tennessee Association of Professional Mediators (Board Member).
