John was raised in Calgary. He has a Ph.D. in New Testament studies from Emmanuel College at the University of Toronto. His dissertation was on Paul’s use of the Hagar/Sarah motif in his letter to the Galatians and how it has been spun in the history of interpretation. This was a kind of case study into how biblical texts have been (i.e., can be) misread in the history of the church and the dangers thereof.

Serves in: Antler River Watershed, Western Ontario Waterways and Horseshoe Falls Regional Councils

Location: Teleworks from home and spends time in the regional council.

Role: John encourages and connects communities of faith in their work and promotes social justice ministries.
