My life changed when I saw pictures of the broken bodies of aborted babies my junior year of college. Rather than feeling called to the fight, I felt summoned. After completing my BA in Criminal Justice from Washington State University, I interned at Created Equal, an anti-abortion agency in Ohio, to learn the skills I needed to lead a team back home. It was through that vision that Tiny Heartbeat Ministries was born. In my free time, I love singing to Jesus, fighting in Martial Arts, and eating homemade food.
While in the midst of my studies at Washington State University, I felt an undeniable conviction in my heart to stand up for the unborn. So, I dropped out of school, quit my job, and began support raising to be a missionary. Half a year later and I was serving full-time on staff at Tiny Heartbeat Ministries as the Director of Outreach. It's our calling as Christians to end this genocide and my job to lead the men and women on the front lines of the fight. In my off time, I enjoy writing music, playing board games with friends, and eating a great steak (rare of course).
Soon after my introduction to THM, I began volunteering on outreaches and saw firsthand the impact they have. This reinforced my passion to be used by God in changing the minds and hearts of those who hate God and those who have accepted the killing of the innocent through abortion. God gave me a mind that loves logic and the truth of the Bible, a heart for the unborn and unsaved, and a will to unabashedly share the Gospel. While I truly love discussion and debate, I also enjoy board games, puzzles, disc golfing, climbing, and the company of friends and family.
As an engineering student at University of Idaho, I stepped into a leadership position at our Students for Life club during summer, 2020. Since then, we met and joined THM in efforts to save babies and souls. I believe that Jesus loves these children – unborn and born – and I hope to love them too by sharing the Gospel and standing up for the truth. When I’m not working or studying, I enjoy hiking, reading, and singing Psalms and Hymns with my friends.
Living only 11 minutes from the nearest abortion center, I felt compelled to get involved with Tiny Heartbeat Ministries when it began and serve on staff part-time. I am passionate about winning back my generation for the Lord and advancing a Biblical worldview. When not working with THM, I enjoy writing novels, coding, and advocating for Israel.

Jesus Christ said, “I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly.” My wife and I have always believed in the truth and efficacy of the Word of God, and because of that we have promoted the proclamation of the gospel and are supportive of the battle against the murder of the unborn in their own mother’s womb. My wife and I have been married for 41 years, and have four children and 11 grandchildren.
I am a Civil Engineering PhD student at Washington State University. While at WSU, I first saw the need for showing students the horrors of abortion; the greatest injustice of our generation. I believe the most effective way to combat abortion is through proclaiming the truth of God’s Word which provides the basis for believing all life is valuable and worth protecting. I am an active member of my church and participate regularly in evangelistic and pro-life outreaches.
I have been a builder for over 30 years. Building communities and building citizens for God’s community. “Teaching the next generation the praises of the Lord and his mighty works, so they can arise and teach the next generation, so the children yet to be born will put their trust in God“. I continue to serve in ministries as God opens doors to be a tool for the building up of His spiritual house.
After a 15 year career working for the Department of Corrections, John followed God’s call to start Vision House, a ministry that has met the housing, counseling and spiritual needs for over 1300 homeless men, women, and children. John directed Vision House for 25 fruitful years and even after his departure sees it continue to blossom. He now serves as the Washington Area Director for Man In The Mirror.
