On January 1, 2006, John started full-time ministry with Wayne-Pike Child Evangelism Fellowship, Inc. John moved up to the assistant director position eventually. In April, 2013, John and Kelly felt that God was calling John to serve as the director of Child Evangelism Fellowship of Lackawanna County, Inc. In August, 2014, John and Kelly had their way paid to visit Ireland, England, and Scotland. John and Kelly really fell in love with Ireland and wanted to go back to visit not imagining God was beginning to call them to become missionaries there instead.
In the summer of 2020 we came back from Ireland. It became apparent that we could not return to Ireland at that time. After praying and seeking God's will for most of a year, we finally have our new heading! Read the letter below to find out where.
In 2020 we came back to the USA. God closed the door to us going back to Ireland which began a time of seeking God's next step for us. In September, 2021 God called us to direct Mandaville Camp and Retreat Center in upstate NY. We have been serving at Mandaville since December, 2021.Our new ministry Heading announcement letter!
