J.J. just graduated from Sarah Lawrence College and will start at Boston University in the fall. He is a certified candidate for ministry in The United Methodist Church. He has worked as the Children’s Ministry Director at Ardsley UMC, and as the Spiritual Life Coordinator for Casowasco Camp and Retreat Center. J.J. has spent the past four years preaching at churches and youth events, founding a progressive Christian community on his campus, leading the Young Adult Ministries Team of the Upper NY Conference, and was a lay delegate to the special session of the General Conference in February where he made an impassioned speech for inclusion and unity.  J.J. has a free YouTube Bible study, “Called to Love,” which you can watch here: J.J. is excited to announce that this summer he will be preaching at churches across the U.S. Join us in extending our hospitality and showing that Asbury First is open to all.
