I’m John Guerrero
I have been a student of Scripture since I was a teenager. Back then I had just returned to my faith and was curious to know about Jesus on a more personal level. I knew many of the Bible stories and had been taught lots of moral Bible lessons, but I wanted a deeper connection with the God who had saved me, and I wanted a life that matched up with the teachings of Jesus.
Over the years I have made lots of mistakes. I have wandered many times in my pursuit of a faithful life. And I have had to relearn much about what the Bible teaches in relation to how God wants me to live. I am still on a journey, but I want to share what God has already shown me. That is one of the greatest purposes behind this website and my ministry.
The Personal Stuff
In my adult life I have had many roles – husband, father, Probation Officer, Children’s Minister, youth leader, counselor, teacher, Pastor. I have enjoyed all of the things that God has allowed me to do and I have seen Him use me in many different ways to impact the lives of the people around me. It’s been a blessing to be a part of other people’s growth!
I have been married to an amazing, fierce, strong-willed woman since 2008. We started our family in 2012 and we now have three children (8, 5, and 1), two dogs, a cat, and two hamsters – a houseful of critters! We live in a small town in the Texas hill country where we enjoy our life at the river, in the hills, on hiking trails, and in our big backyard.
I am a high school Spanish teacher but I am currently in a graduate program to become a professional counselor. My dream is to be an LPC, run my own counseling practice, write books and articles, and live the dream helping people to become BETTER.
I was the pastor of a small Baptist church for four years, but recently stepped down in obedience to Christ in order to pursue other passions and burdens. God is leading my wife and me to turn our attention to the “unchurched” and the “done with church” and to help people to understand what authentic Christianity really looks like. We long to be a part of a church that more closely resembles the one that Jesus started, and we have surrendered ourselves to whatever that might look like as we pursue Him.
