On the Elder Board since 2018
John has served at Bent Tree for the past 12 years in kids ministry, welcoming, middle school, and now mentoring couples and serving as an elder.
I am a Christ-follower; thankful husband to Amy; father to A.J., Cassidy, and Brock; and orthopedic surgeon. Originally from California and educated at the University of California, the University of North Carolina, and Harvard-Massachusetts General Hospital, I am blessed with a gratifying joint replacement practice here in greater North Dallas, Texas. Widely recognized as an educator, speaker, and scientific author, I consider all of this to pale in comparison to "the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord." (Phil. 3:8)
Amy and I have found awesome people everywhere we have served at Bent Tree! We are passionate about Jesus, and helping people experience Life: Life in Christ, Life with others, and Life expressed!
