Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Pastor John Wiley visits with Scott to share his vision of community living, including helping the homeless.

John Wiley is an unconventional pastor who teaches love and compassion through his passion to mentor and creatively show others how to see their cities differently. He demonstrates to young families a fresh and transparent approach to a traditional gospel message, with relevance to embrace it at a heart level. He also equips Christians to recognize and engage the opportunities before them that they may have been missing on a daily basis.

In 1981 he accepted Christ while in a military prison at the age of nineteen. In 2001, he and his family started River Church Family with fifteen teenagers, where he serves as the senior pastor. Today, the River has over 350 people. John is also the founder of River of Refuge, a non-profit, Kansas City-based organization committed to help transition homeless families who have jobs, from high-rent motels and shelters into permanent housing.

John and Mary Jo have been married since 1982. They have three children and four grandchildren. For twenty years, Mary Jo focused on raising their three children. In 2009 she completed her doctoral studies and today practices chiropractic care at Revma Health Center in Raytown, MO.
