John attended Tyndale College in the late 1960's and then pursued a successful career in business. In 1980, while on a ministry trip to Indonesia, John and Carol responded to God's call on their lives for full-time ministry. Upon returning home, they started Jubilee Christian Fellowship in Stratford, Ontario in 1981. The Lord then called them to Toronto in 1987, where TACF (now known as Catch the Fire) was started. In January 1994, through a sovereign outpouring of the Holy Spirit, revival exploded into protracted meetings, and TACF came to the world's attention as a place where God was meeting with His people.
