John Tank - Senior Pastor
Pastor John loves being part of the Harvest Bible Chapel movement because of its commitment to “Deep Teaching & Dynamic Worship”. John has seen God’s amazing work all around the world. He is steadfast in his conviction that God loves building His church and is always at work in saving, maturing, and multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ.
Prior to moving to Clear Lake in February of 2012, John was on staff at Grace West Church in West Des Moines, IA as the Associate Pastor. He began his ministry in the Youth Department at Thomas Road Church, in Phoenix, AZ. He has also interned at Graceway Church in Springfield MO, where he was also ordained as a Pastor. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baptist Bible College in Intercultural Studies, as well as a Certificate degree as a Licensed Practical Nurse. John has also served with the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps.
John is most passionate about Jesus Christ and the radical change He has made in his life. He knows that God's Word is alive and active and is capable of changing others as well.
John and Becky are excited to be a part of the Clear Lake/ Mason City community and faithfully proclaim the knowledge of who God is and what He has done. We believe that the Gospel is not just something to be believed, but is something to be applied to every aspect of our lives. We feel a great urgency for people to come to Christ and grow up in Christ by fully understanding the truth of the Gospel and living by the power of the Gospel.
He has been married to his College sweetheart, Becky, since 1997. They have three children (Johnathan, Nattalie and Daniel) who absolutely love Iowa.
