myseniormoments

My name is Pastor John and I live in central Mississippi with my wife, Karen. We have been married for almost 25 years (hard to believe!). We do not have any kids but have two cats that act like kids and are also a lot of work (and a huge blessing!) We have a ministry which the Lord has called into being, called Creative Hearts Ministries (you can find us on Facebook). In addition, I have recently started a website for senior citizens called Pastor John's Senior Moments (www.pastorjohnsseniormoments.com ) Feel free to contact me through any of these sites. God bless you.
