“It was a blessing from God that He gave us John as the speaker for our church’s retreat. He was very helpful and loving from the start when we reached out to him. One of our members had previously known John and recommended him to deliver the message that we needed to hear and he did just that with eloquence and grace. Though John spoke with biblical truths, he spoke also with humor and we loved every bit of it. We at BCCC were truly blessed by John’s messages and have been impacted by them as the Holy Spirit continues to work the truths spoken in our lives. We are grateful that God has blessed John with his ministry and his passion to serve others in his life while encouraging his family and church to do the same.”
— Kevin Chu - Brooklyn Community Christian Church
