New Pastor at Temple Baptist Church

Pastor John became the Lead Pastor here at Temple in July of 2016. A “home-grown” boy, he was raised in Salida and is a Salida High graduate. After spending 23 years as a pastor in Silicon Valley in Northern CA he and his wife Pamela returned “home” and are excited to be Coloradoans again!

John has a business degree from Fort Lewis College and received his Masters from Golden Gate Seminary just north of San Francisco. He and Pamela have 2 adult, married kids who have gifted them with 4 grandkids.

John loves to ride his road bike (the pedal type), scuba dive, hike, read books and has been a loyal Broncos fan despite his time in California.

John says… “I have a really light heart and don’t take myself too seriously, but I do take others very seriously and am passionate about seeing God transform lives and getting to play some small role in that.”
