• John Power - Interim Senior Pastor

    John Power was raised in a Christ-centered home in South Florida and East Tennessee. He put his faith in Christ at a very young age. John first began at the age of 15 to discern that God was preparing him for a life of service in the local church. After college in East Tennessee, he interned at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. John studied for the MDiv at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He has been deeply influenced by the teaching and preaching of men like John Piper, Tom Schreiner, and Mark Dever, among many others. And he considers it a great joy to be called to proclaim the gospel in New England.

    John is married to his best friend Liz, and together they have been blessed with five crazy boys: Eliot, Timmy, Luke, Judson and Jay. They live in North Attleboro. John and Liz both love a good cup of coffee and a quiet place to read, both of which are rarities in their home!
