John Whitten came to Pioneer Drive in the fall of 2003 as a freshman at Hardin-Simmons University. While at HSU, he met his wife, Elya and finished with a degree in Business Management and a Master's of Divinity at Logsdon Seminary. He serves as Lead Pastor for the gathering. He loves to run so that he can eat lots of Mexican food! He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree and chasing three children—Sam, Sarah Kate and Savannah. Nothing excites John more than people finding hope today and forevermore in Jesus Christ!
