John grew up in Stratford, Connecticut, and began attending Black Rock as a high school student. After spending a few years at Wheaton College in Illinois, John returned to Connecticut and graduated from Fairfield University. In 2002, John began serving at Black Rock as a youth leader and on the Sanctuary worship team as a drummer, guitarist, and worship leader. John joined the Black Rock staff full-time in 2010, after serving in a variety of positions at the church, including worship leader and Sanctuary intern. He has a love for worshiping God through music and for developing a culture of life-changing worship in the church, especially among younger generations. John is married to Kate, who also works at Black Rock. For fun John enjoys playing music with friends, outdoor activities like camping and skiing, and rooting for the New York Yankees.
