John moved from Illinois to New Mexico in March of 2013 after serving in ministry leadership for over 20 years. His greatest joy is spending time with his three children and his only granddaughter.

John Biava – Development Director   

Born in Gallup, NM in 1950. Has earned a B.S. in Sociology and Humanities, working in mining, drilling and Lab business for the past 50 years with many people who were instrumental in mentoring and teaching me about life and becoming purposed and significant. Most importantly leading me to the way, the truth, and the life found in Christ at 37 years old.
Looking back, I believe that this mentoring discipleship is what we as individuals are called to be and do with what are described in the Bible as “the least of these.”. A path so that the young ones might come to Him.
