John taught mathematics to middle schoolers for 11 years before coming to EBC because seventh and eighth grade teachers can get away with acting insane. News flash . . . crazy is normative to pre-adolescent students. What he loves most about teaching in a school context is the opportunity to build relationships with students in order to help them catch a vision of God's unique design and incredible plans for their lives. He used to play volleyball and run a few miles each day, but now spends most of his time studying and preaching God's Word when his wife, five kids, old house, dog, cat, and lone surviving fish don't require his attention.
