How John Served with Global Recordings Network
John took care of the audio equipment at Gospel Recordings and later Global Recordings Network for the past 47 years. Since recorders, players, servers, and computers are the workhorses of Global Recordings, when they break down the work is hindered. John was called on to fix anything that breaks, including items like eye glasses, jammed staplers, and vacuum cleaners. He also helped to maintain and repair the plumbing and electrical when necessary.
On Faith, Family, & Background
John put his faith in Christ for his salvation at the age of ten through the ministry of a church club for boys. John had heard about Global Recordings when Joy Ridderhoff made a visit to his church in Los Angeles. He remembers his Sunday School teacher telling him about Joy’s visit when he was about 7 years old. After military service in the US Air Force, John attended Colver City Bible College. While on a field trip to Gospel Recordings in Los Angeles, the Lord impressed upon him to work here. John has used his technical skills to serve Jesus at Global Recordings since 1975.
If you ever visit the Arizona office, ask us to show you John’s pencil sharpener. His inventive mind created many displays — and surprises! — to delight young and old who visited his workshop.
