John and his family have been filled with a burden for the reality of a 90+% unchurched population that exists in New England. The role John has taken with OceanPointe (OP) focuses on discipleship and leadership development. John has initially been tasked with developing leaders for the small groups ministry and for pastoral care. He is also overseeing the launch of a Celebrate Recovery program.

News from Northpointe Christian Church: A Baptism Story


BIG UPDATE.....

A few months ago I announced Shawn Green was stepping down as the lead pastor at NorthPointe, and I would be acting as interim pastor. This interim period has come to an end, and a new team has been brought into the church. I'm excited for the Millers and Piazzas to continue to lead NorthPointe to develop followers of Jesus.With the transition at NorthPointe, this begins a new season of ministry for me. I am excited to announce I will serve as the Student Pastor at BridgePointe Christian Church in East Providence, RI. BridgePointe is just down the road from NorthPointe, and I will continue to serve in Rhode Island as planned. BridgePointe has a thriving student ministry, and I'm humbled and grateful I get to serve in this capacity. Middle and High School Students need caring adults in their life who will lead them in their faith. It's only because my Student Pastor invited me to church when I was in Middle School that I know Jesus today. I'm passionate about partnering with parents and equipping leaders to lead students to become disciples of Jesus in relationships. Leading the next generation to passionately follow Jesus is essential to the future of the church. As you can see (click here),  the students know how to have a great time!


Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have, or ways I can join with you in prayer. I'm so thankful for each and every one of you!


Praying for One,
