Reverend John W Grover was appointed Associate Pastor for Compass Church. Pastor John was the founding pastor of our antecedent church, Emmanuel Free Methodist. He worked as a pastor for 45 years, the last seven as Superintendent of the North Central Conference, Free Methodist Church.
Pastor John brings a wealth of experience and a strong desire to serve Jesus to this Associate Pastor position.
Annette, his wife of over 50 years, and John are leading a ministry geared toward persons over the age of 55. It is entitled, “JOY Club”. (Just Older Youth)
The Grovers were raised in Christian homes and having spent years in ministry are eager to serve Jesus in this latest capacity. Their love for people is exceeded only by their love of Jesus.
