Meet our Pastor


 Pastor John Peront grew up in Massachusetts and trusted in Christ as his Savior at the age of seven.  Upon graduating from high school he attended a one year Bible Institute  and then married his high school  sweetheart, Jennifer.  The two went to West   Virginia for four years where John received  a degree in Bible at Appalachian Bible  College.  Following his graduation they  returned to Massachusetts and John  accepted a position as Assistant Pastor at  The Church of the Open Bible in Burlington,  MA.  While ministering there, John was  ordained to the gospel ministry in 1997.    After eight years of blessed and fruitful  ministry in Burlington, the Lord began to  work in John and Jennifer's hearts and led  them to step out in faith to a church  planting ministry in Manchester, NH.  In  February of 2003 they moved to  Manchester to further be involved in  this ministry, excited to see all that God  would do.  After nine years of serving the  Lord in this area they have seen the  blessing of God in planting and growing  this ministry. Crossroads Bible Church is  now located in Candia, NH where John continues to serve as pastor.

John's has a deep appreciation for history and enjoys the outdoors.  He enjoys walking, hiking, and cross country skiing with Jennifer and their two children.
