Johnny joined our staff as associate pastor in January of 2013. He has been serving in ministry since 2000. After graduating from Broken Bow, he attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University. It was there where God confirmed his call to full-time ministry. Johnny and his wife, Kayla, met while on staff at Falls Creek in 2008 and married December 23, 2011. Some of his favorite things include; spending time with family and picking on his two nieces, watching Oklahoma Sooners football, and eating indian tacos. One thing sports enthusiasts find shocking is that Johnny is a life long Chicago Cubs fan.
