Student Ministry PastorTwitter Facebook
For John Huseman, student ministry is all about having a passion for kids and helping them get to know God in a powerful way. After being a youth pastor for the previous eight years in Colorado, John came to The Ark in 2009. He received his degree in Pastoral Christian Ministries from Oral Roberts University. He also graduated from the Focus on the Family Leadership Institute in 2000.
While attending ORU, John met his wife, Lindsay, and they have been married since 2004 and have three children, Brooklyn, Jonathan, and Naomi Hope. Some of John’s hobbies include playing guitar, golfing, tennis, and cheering wildly for the Dallas Cowboys. He sees God at work at The Ark, uniting the staff team with a powerful vision of ministry to the community.
“I love the staff and I love what this church has as far as culture. People are valued. People are given grace, and they are allowed to excel in their giftings,” John said. “It feels like God is bringing the church and the staff to a place where He has always wanted and destined us to be to reach the community.”
John is an excellent role model and leader to the students at The Ark. He is a gifted and inspiring communicator with a genuine love for the students he leads. The Student Ministry offers Sunday classes, special weekend events, summer camps and a weekly Wednesday night services for 6th thru 12th grade students.
John enjoys spending time with his students, going to their football games or other activities and inviting groups of students over to his house where ministry can take place.
“I really love my students, I seriously do," John explained. "I loving supporting them and having them over to my house and doing everything I can to help them be the men and women god has called them to be.”
