John Satherley - Family Care Pastor
John holds the office of Family Care Pastor for Crosby Church. A native of England, John holds dear to his nationality but enjoys the cultural contrast to his adopted Texas lifestyle.
John’s past experience in personnel management in the military and corporate industry, refined by the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, has enabled him to administer God’s love appropriately to people experiencing the harshness of life’s difficulties. His ministerial duties at Crosby Church are primarily hospital and home visitations, spiritual counseling, organizing/officiating funerals and weddings, and other practical family matters. John also pastorally oversees the Prayer Ministry, Altar Workers, Life Impact Groups, Communion Preparation, Baby Dedications and Water Baptisms.
John openly confesses the blessings his Lord has poured into his life by way of his wife Peggy, who he believes has demonstrated unswerving commitment to their family and serving Christ in full time ministry.
Along with total commitment to Pastor Keenan, John is indebted to his Savior for the ability to serve Him, his Pastor, and the people of Crosby Church with the absolute goal of glorifying our heavenly Father and promoting His Kingdom through Crosby Church.
John’s careers, prior to full-time ministry, are diverse. After leaving school at the age of 16, he joined the Royal Air Force. He served in the Middle and Far East as well as the United Kingdom before retiring from the military in 1979. He graduated from North Staffordshire Polytechnic in 1981 in the field of Mechanical Engineering.
John gave his life to Jesus Christ at the end of October 1988, and began to worship at Winchester Family Church in Winchester, England. On a vacation to the USA in 1988, he met Peggy, his wife to be. By August 1989, they were married and living in Winchester, England. They were blessed with two fine sons, Trevor in 1994 and Aaron in 1996. The boys enjoy dual-nationality.
In August of 1999, John and his family immigrated to the United States and bought a home in Huffman, Texas, where they currently reside.
John, Peggy, and their boys began attending Crosby Church in October 1999. In mid 2000, John accepted the position of Care Pastor.
