Meet John & Joni, Our Student Pastors
John and Joni Hires were both born and raised in Jacksonville Florida, they have been mentoring students since 2001. They both feel the call to pastor the current generation of young people. They are convinced there is a generation yet to awakened to the Power of God to change their world.
Through John’s hours spent on school campuses, he believes God has given him a passion to not wait for the students to come to church, but that the church is to go to the students with relevant and intentional evangelism. The love for the students who don’t know Jesus is birthed every Wednesday night through intense worship and an exciting presentation of the Word of God on a weekly basis.
Students face a war zone called school every day and we want to help them to live above the negative influences and attacks. The Wednesday night youth service is designed to be a safe place for the student to come in and refuel for the rest of the week.
John and Joni are grateful to God for the opportunity to minister here at LifeChurch and look forward to being a part of what God is doing in this church and community through the young men and women here. Join them and expect such great things for which only God could be responsible.
