Get to know John.

During John's youth in the Lower Valley during the 60's & 70's, he "attended" First Pres via KIT Radio. Then in the 80's he moved to Yakima and, on a Sunday morning invitation from a classmate, John found his in-person church home with Grace!

Since then, John has been privileged to serve in Children's and Youth Ministries, including Sunday School, VBS, Youth Group, and camps. As a past Deacon and member of the Sanctuary Guild, John continues serving today in many of those same areas including Tech, Safety, Hospitality, and as a non-serving Elder.

Along the way, John raised 5 children through children's and youth programs, and now with 7 grandchildren, a 3rd generation of Yolo's have participated in many the kids and youth programs at Grace.

After being on staff in the 90's as a part-time night custodian, John returned to a full-time staff building position in 2018.
