John served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and was stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Station the whole time where he was a cook. In 1947, he and his wife attended the Practical Bible Training School in Johnson City, NY and there, he studied for the Gospel Ministry. He pastored churches in New York State, Pennsylvania, and Washington State. In his latter years of ministry, he traveled in an evangelistic ministry preaching from a large dispensational Bible Chart which showed God's Plan for the Ages – from Genesis to Revelation.
