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.
