Intro to John Crump

Since 2006 Heart for Lebanon’s desire has been to have an active prayer ministry and to add as much value as we can to the local church. As we look into 2024 and beyond, our desire is to take this to a whole new level.

With that as the goal let me introduce you to Rev. John Crump who joined us this January 2nd on the Advancement Team here in the USA. John will have the privilege to lead our prayer ministry and add the value we desire to bring to all our partner churches world-wide.

Here’s a little about John!

• John grew up in Indiana and followed Jesus at age 8.
• He entered full-time pastoral ministry in 1998 after 10 years as a Probation Officer and Social Worker.
• He was ordained as a Pastor in October 2003.
• John and his wife Michelle have been married for 35 years and have 3 married children.
• He served on the Heart for Lebanon Board of Directors from 2013 to 2019.
• He has served in both Associate Pastor and in Senior Pastor roles over his 25 years of ministry.

A word from John to our Prayer Partners and church ministry partners:

“I am humbled and excited to join the Heart for Lebanon team! It’s been amazing to see God at work through Heart for Lebanon as they serve people and churches here in the USA, and by providing the resources for the ministry in Lebanon. With our partnership we can help fulfill our mission to Make Disciples. You and I get to be a part of leading people from despair to hope in Jesus’ Name at home and in Lebanon! I’m grateful to be a small part of that and I look forward to praying with you, and meeting church leaders in the days ahead!”   – John Crump

Please join me in welcoming John by sending him your greetings and your prayer requests. I know he would count it a privilege to pray with you.
