Why The Grove?
The Grove is a church focused on sharing Christ by building authentic relationships with people outside the walls of our building. The mission and articulate way in which Pastor John faithfully communicates the vision is essential in attaining that goal. It provides an atmosphere of freedom and challenge for an ever-changing culture.
Music and Books
John appreciates most all styles of music. His favorite is jazz and enjoys relaxing to easy-listening. Aside from the Bible, the book that has most impacted his life is the "Cost of Discipleship" by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
