John Downey currently lives in Indiana and is married to his Hott wife and has three great kids who’ve really taught him a lot about the love of God, and patience. He likes sports, Bible study and referring to himself in the third person.
John grew up in Toledo, Ohio and really misses Tony Packo’s Hot Dogs and hanging out really late at night at the Meijer on Reynold’s Road, and all his friends back in Ohio (except the ones that moved away.) He has also lived in Kentucky and Tennessee, where he learned how to
chew read and spit write) He’s a fan of the Boston Celtics, Indianpolis Colts, and Cleveland Indians. In addition to being a decent cook (but not as good as his Hott wife) he has also recently discovered he enjoys baking and makes a mean banana chocolate chip bread.
John grew up as the son of a Southern Baptist Pastor and has served as a youth pastor in two different churches. For a brief time he flirted with the emergent church (just holding hands, nothing heavy) He has come to embrace Reformed theology (special thanks to these minitries: here and here and here) And although his dad still clings to the belief that Calvinists aren’t evangelistic, John is slowly starting to show him otherwise.
