John and Kristen Ware were both born in Newport News, VA, in the same hospital, only 11 days apart - and they didn't even know it! Many years later they met at a local church, became friends, dated, married, and now have three sons. After 10 years as a youth pastor in various places, John and Kristen felt called to plant a life giving church that exists to reach people who are far from God. John and Kristen have a heart for the Newport News/Hampton/Yorktown area and desire to see people encounter and be transformed by the life giving message of Jesus.
