John and Barri became disciples while studying Civil Engineering and Sociology at Louisiana State University in 1983. They were married in 1985 and moved to Memphis, TN where John completed his Master’s Degree in Religious Studies from Harding University. Together, they have led ministries throughout the US, as well as Bangkok, Thailand and Manila, Philippines. They are both still fluent in Thai, and regularly travel around the world spreading the Good News and strengthening the church.
John and Barri presently serve as the Lead Evangelist/Women’s Ministry Leader of the Des Moines Church of Christ. They are the parents of two wonderful girls and one son in law, all of whom are faithful Christians in Denver, CO.
For fun, John has a passion for the outdoors and enjoys running, archery, bowhunting, and fly fishing. Barri enjoys cooking, hosting parties and spending time with their girls.
