about John S

Following a career in media and medical sales, I was called to ministry and received a Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. Since then, I have served two Presbyterian (PCUSA) congregations in Lexington, Kentucky and Oxford, Mississippi. I am drawn to helping people of all ages and backgrounds find deeper meaning in life by seeking faith in God in and outside the organized church. I am a rabid Memphis Grizzlies fan and live for my next trip to the beach and its incomparable restorative power.
