JOHN ELMORE

RE:GENERATION PASTOR AT WATERMARK COMMUNITY CHURCH | DALLAS

John has the joy of serving as the Director of re:generation at Watermark Church Dallas. For him, it’s a dream job because he gets to walk with people who are humbly seeking freedom and growth through walking daily with Jesus - in community – leaving behind the pain of the past, and places where they’re stuck. As a recovering alcoholic, he knows firsthand the wreckage that comes from living a life disconnected from God, but much more than that,  Jesus’ promise of a new, full, abundant life in Him. John now sees it as his life’s purpose to point people to the Healer, Redeemer, Creator and Deliverer. 

John was raised in Springfield, Missouri, and got to Texas via Baylor University. After eight years in advertising, sales and reckless, foolish living down in Austin, he found himself walking into an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, following a family intervention in 2005. At the age of 30, he surrendered his life and will to Jesus and He began changing everything. Addictions, hopelessness, anxiety and depression quickly turned to freedom, purpose, peace and joy. John enrolled in the Kanakuk Institute to be discipled and learn the bible and earned an MA from John Brown University and a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary - while serving with ministries in Dallas, Haiti and Sudan along the way.

He loves his wife and best friend, Laura, and together they believe the quality of their marriage rises and falls, not on circumstances or feelings, but based on daily abiding with Jesus (Jn 15.5). He sees Laura as a gift of God’s tangible grace and together they have a ball raising their three children (boy, girl, boy).
