Pastor John Draper
John grew up in midtown Memphis, TN, where he came to Christ at age 19…reading a Bible given by a friend at work.
In 1980, he and his wife Frances were married—and began life on mission together. Their son, Stephen is married, and has two children.
His past ministry experience includes serving congregations in Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Italy.
John served as director for Baltimore Baptist Association, and in 2014 moved to the midwest as a missionary working with church start-ups.
He loves travel, cycling, multicultural ministry, and being Pop-pop.
