After over 13 years of following a passion to reach people for Jesus, God led John and his wife Ceci back to Metro Detroit with the vision to start New Anthem Church. He loves God and loves people deeply, with a passion to see the lost meet Jesus. John also loves concerts, disc golf, and late night worship sessions.
Ceci is passionate about glorifying God through creativity, helping people find their gifts and get plugged in to serve, and showing the love of Jesus to the world by loving the community. She loves her husband John, her dog Vera, fancy coffee, concerts, and trying out new recipes.

Adam is also very involved with outreach in the community with a strong passion and desire to reach people for the Gospel because of his diverse family background.

All sports are still his passion, especially those with a green Spartan on the jersey.
