It all started when...


John, 57, I grew up in an alcoholic family, so drugs and alcohol where a major part of my life for more than 38 years. On December 5th, 2010 was the day of my genuine conversion and encounter with Jesus Christ.

I promptly entered Brooklyn Teen Challenge with a mission to find God's calling and perfect will for my life, I graduated both the Men's Program and the Brooklyn Teen Challenge School of Ministry. The Holy Spirit called me to serve in the Dominican Republic for 18 months as a Missionary Staff which was life changing. Then He led me to the Desert just outside of Reno, Nevada to work with Adolescences. Before finally calling me back Brooklyn Teen Challenge. My journey for the past 6 plus years has been amazing, I prayed for His next calling, and the very next day, He opened the door to serve and take over the kitchen at the Father's Heart Men's Center, I met Pastor Ed and I bonded with the sharing the Word together back 2012.  Cooking has been a passion of mine, and Evangelizing is a close second.
