John is the River’s Worship Leader & Church Leader. He has a passion for worship and seeing people healed and restored through the presence of God. Kristin has a passion for prayer and has a heart to see the broken and lost healed and restored. John may look rough on the outside but on the inside he is a real softy. Kristin also may seem quiet but she is a warrior on the inside and has some fire to share. John seeks for justice in the Kingdom and Kristin seeks for truth and faithfulness. Together they enjoy serving, loving and giving their life away for the Kingdom of God.
