Ministry at St John’s

Since 1956, when the Hall Church was dedicated, we have been blessed by the ordained and lay ministers who have served St John’s and helped it to grow into the vibrant community that it is today.  We thank God for the vision and leadership that the men and women below have given us and pray that that will continue into the future.
