A direct descendant of Scottish Presbyterian church planters, John began his ministry labors in 1996 in the same Presbyterian church his forefathers established in 1841. During his studies at Belhaven College, John was privileged to study under Dr. Wynn Kenyon (considered to be John Gerstner's left hand man as R.C. Sproul was considered his right) where he developed a deep appreciation and passion for apologetics. Graduating from Belhaven, John was honored to teach at Chamberlain-Hunt Military Academy, successor of Oakland College and the last remaining Presbyterian military academy in the United States. John went on to serve in ministry at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Fort Walton Beach, FL and at Presbyterian Church of the Lakes in Orlando, FL. John is currently a member of the Presbyterian Church in America.
Before answering the call to serve as President, John was the registrar of the seminary. John believes that the mission and vision of LCS is one of the most honorable and remarkable educational endeavors attempted by the Reformed Community.
