Speaker ~ John Katsion

John has a passion for preaching and for making the Bible come alive through telling the stories of the Bible, as just that, a story. His story-telling approach to preaching is unique in that it seeks to preserve the narrative form that much of scripture was written in, while still conveying its powerful life-changing message.  John has been teaching at the University level for over 25 years and is currently an Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Northwest Missouri State University, in Maryville, MO. Dr. Katsion taught at Multnomah University in Portland, OR for four years, and Hannibal-LaGrange University, in Hannibal, MO for seven years.

He has been married for over 25 years to his beautiful wife Peggy, and they have three boys (Jacob, Lincoln, and Elijah) and a dog named Eddie. He likes watching movies and playing board and video games with his family. He also loves to play golf and follow the Chicago Bears and the Nebraska Cornhuskers, both of which are bad right now. He was born in Omaha Nebraska, but then grew up as a missionary kid in Jamaica and then England. John has his Ph.D. from Regent University, Virginia Beach, VA in Communication Studies and is an active member of Laura Street Baptist Church in Maryville, MO, where he works with the middle school youth ministry and leads a newlyweds’ Sunday school class.
