My name is John Dunkin and I’m the newest addition to the Westbrooke family! My wife, Kim, and I have 5 kids…Kelsey (12), Alex (11), Jake (7), Ben (5) and Kendra (3). Needless to say, life is full! Kim and I met at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL and later moved out to Southern California so that I could attend The Master’s Seminary. I love to hang out with my family, fish, read, and play golf (on the wii!).God has given me a passion to preach His Word and to shepherd His body. I am excited about what He is doing at Westbrooke and look forward to meeting you!
I have had a heart for ministry from the time I was a child. I developed a heart for youth ministry throughout several years working and volunteering at Silver Birch Ranch, a camp in Northern Wisconsin. I majored in Youth Ministry at Columbia International University, graduating in 2006, and have been working in Youth Ministry for the last 11 years, as an intern and assistant youth pastor during my college years, as a Youth Outreach Specialist at a para church organization, and as a youth pastor. I am currently working on completing my Masters of Divinity through Columbia International University. I met my wife, Sarah, at Columbia International University in 2002, and we were married in 2005. Together we have 2 children, Derek (4) and Owen (2). my hobbies include: bike riding, lifting weights, swimming, anything outdoors, hanging out with family, and cooking.
