Rev. Travis E. Kern, DMin, Pastor


St. John's has a place for you whether your military orders are short or long term.

Being Military means change and transition are a part of life. We know that many military members and families move every two or three years. St. John’s seeks to provide a place to explore faith regardless of the length of your orders or your denomination.

We’re here to support you while you’re here.
