Minister and Elder
John has been ministering among and with the people of the Mason Street church since 1992. He and his wife, Vicky, have three married children and 7 grandchildren. John enjoys quiet early mornings, long conversations over a good cup of coffee, laughter with good friends and the aches of playing too hard with his grandchildren. He stays up too late reading and his fishing equipment doesn’t get used as much as he would like. He still gets chills when he sees people grow in Christ.
Ted has been a member of the Lord’s Church since his baptism in 1969 in Warren, Michigan. He became a member at Mason Street when he and his wife, Marilynn, moved here for work in 1979.
