As a redeemed, recycled 1970s Californian Jesus Freak, John has faced too many extreme situations and sticky wickets through the years to mention here. Returning to his native England, John was actively involved in mission and outreach and taught English in a Further Education college in London until retiring in 2017.

After a ten-year journey into a deeper appreciation of the historic Christianity, in 2013 John was received into the Catholic Church where he now serves in a lay capacity. Yet foundational to his faith has always been his experiences living in Gospel Outreach - an orthodox evangelical Christian commune in the USA. He is still in touch with many of his original “Jesus Freak” generation buddies.

John serves as co-leader of a local Catholic Charismatic prayer group and writes to instruct and inspire. Prior to Pope Francis' election in March 2013, John accurately predicted in his personal journal that the new pope would choose either the name John or Francis.

Currently, John is engaged in researching the 1967-1977 American 'Jesus People Movement' that saw tens of thousands of hippies coming to Christian discipleship through communes, coffee houses, and street outreach. He has been revitalising his ministry website at throughout 2019 and is writing a devotional.

John and his Filipino wife Gladdys have one boy, several stray cats that appear and disappear at will, and a growing extended family both in the UK and abroad. They make their home in Birmingham, England where they love to praise and worship Jesus. Still young at heart, John is passionate about engaging young adults in the faith, particularly though relational small groups.

Dear Bro John. As members within OSJ the idea of visiting our brethren in Cornwall seems a good idea. Sharing the humanitarian aid issues could do so much in aiding others relief. Please advise when convenient to both pop down to Cornwall. Once meeting completed we could share our combined efforts with all on AOCI site. One thing is for sure all on this site are committed to the relief of others suffering. May all be held in each other's prayers. fr David

I am going to begin to be a bit outspoken here on our Order of St. James page. I'm a little fed up with watching the rich get richer and the poor - well, staying in the same old poverty, trapped by the unequal distribution of wealth. I'm talking about CHRISTIANS, not society in general!

As a Catholic, I have a lot of empathy for charismatics and Pentecostals - I was one myself. And that is why I will be posting from time to time articles that…

Last Sunday my Filipino wife Gladdys and I were guest speakers at 'Harvester Christian Church' in Sta. Maria, Pangasinan, Philippines. We had been praying for rain all month, as the rice crop desperately needed the water in order to flourish. Although Sta. Maria had received some rain prior to our arrival, back in San Carlos City, the rainy season simply had not even begun to…
