He has a passion to serve Christ and His church.
John and his wife, Marisa, met in college and were married in November of 1986. They recognize that ministry goes beyond the walls of the church building and is truly a part of their daily lives. They are always open to God's leading in whatever way He chooses to call.

Associate Minister: Adam Schetzler
Adam began his ministry with First Christian Church in June of 2008. He is very familiar with this area of Missouri having grown up in Eugene, MO. While attending Capital City Christian Church in Jefferson City he developed a passion for serving Christ and His Church. Prior to his ministry with FCCV, Adam served as a youth ministry intern both in Jefferson City and in the Chicago area. Through those experiences he was able to confirm God's calling on his life in ministry.
Adam and his wife, Jessie, grew their relationship at FCCV and were married in September of 2010. Together, they present a powerful testimony to our young adults and youth as to how to begin a relationship on God's standards and how to live by His leading thereafter. As a couple they have a passion for Christ and His church and have found that their ministry to our youth is appropriate for their God given talents. They have a son, Ezekiel, who brings added blessings to their life and ministry.
Adam is a graduate of Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO with a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Literature.
