JOHN CRUICE was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia. As a high school graduate, he followed through with his plan to head to the sunny beaches of Florida and attend Clearwater Christian College. John was determined to shake off the dust of the city and never again live in Pennsylvania, let alone in the Northeast section of the city. Over the years, though, God has given him a passion for the church and for Northeast Philadelphia. Now he can’t imagine living anywhere else.
John and his wife, Tammi (who worked at Camp Calvary in the summer of ’07 and they were married there in ‘08!) are usually running around like crazy people doing fun things with their four children. They have two girls and two boys (Riley, Silas, Ruthi, and Ezra). You can usually find them trying to keep their children from injuring themselves! He works full time at a technology company and has been serving as the youth director at Berean Bible Church in Philadelphia with a wonderful group of students since 2012.
