John KennedyI was born and raised in Midland, TX., and raised in the church. My father served as an elder for over thirty-five years.  My wife and I were both baptized in Midland in 1954 and have both been active ever since. After military service and college we located in Northeastern Ohio and became a deacon at the Forest Hills Church in 1963 and served for over twnty years.  We have three children all raised in the church and we now have four grandchildren.

After retirement I relocated to Houston, TX and placed membership at the Bammel Rd. Church of Christ.  My wife and I both taught classes at Bammel.  She taught the lower grades and I taught at the adult level.  In November 2009, we moved from Houston to Surprise, AZ. and identified with the Surprise Church of Christ where we still attend. I became a deacon in 2010.  

As a deacon, I served as Worship planner, church treasurer, benevolence director, administered service to two children's homes (1) Midwestern in Cincinnati, Ohio (2) Schultz-Lewis in Valpariso, Ind.   I have taught classes for some thirty years, (1) Jr. High (2) High School (3) Adult.
