Who We Are

Meet the Pastor

John Albano grew up in suburban New Jersey.  John and his future wife Lynn were both on the Rutgers University Crew (Rowing) Team and met January 3, 1987.  John has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers University and a Masters in Manufacturing Systems Engineering from Lehigh University.  John worked in engineering, management, and higher education positions in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. John became a Christian in the early 1990s and was involved in numerous lay ministries.  Prior to seminary, John was the director of technology support services for Radford University, was the faculty adviser for Campus Outreach ministry at RU, served as a ruling elder at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Blacksburg, VA, and is the former board president of Dayspring Christian Academy. Sensing a call to full-time ministry, in 2013 John became a full time Master of Divinity student at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he graduated in 2016.  John and Lynn have four children, Jessica, Sara, Hannah, and David.
