John J. McAuley, Jr
Sensing that God was calling them to full time vocational ministry, they spent two years on staff with Youth For Christ, then moved to Boston, to study at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. John received his Masters of Divinity in 1992. Since then John and Jen have served churches in Lake City, Florida, and Aurora, Illinois. John and Jen returned to Troy in 2002 to serve at Third Presbyterian Church, and are grateful to be part of the church family here.
Besides serving the Lord, their joy is their 3 young adult children, James, Daniel, and Abigail.
