Rev. John Malget
I am a nerd! A STAR TREK NERD!!! But don’t hold that against me. I grew up just north of here in Perry, so it was wonderful to move home a few years ago. With a Bachelor of Music Ed from Phillips U, I spent 15 amazing years teaching vocal music in Cushing, OK, while I studied at Phillips Seminary. With my MDiv, and being freshly ordained, I embarked on 9 wonderful years as Associate Pastor at Memorial Drive Christian Church in Houston, TX. I love worship and making music. But most of all, I have a passion for people. We have to find ways to love ourselves, and to love each other. After we start working on that, there is a real need in our world to care for the least, the last, and the lost around us. I want all of us to do that together: me, my wife Sherri, my two kids: Nick and Kristin, and YOU!
