I grew up in Brookland, AR, a little town outside of Jonesboro. I started making bad decisions at a young age. Those decisions led me to some dark and dangerous places for a lot of years. In the days before coming to the ministry I was in a place where a savior was truly needed in my life. Over the next few months in the ministry while rebuilding my relationship with Christ there was an overwhelming desire to seek God’s will for my life. Over a period of time I came to the realization that I was called to be a part of something way bigger than myself. Following my calling to be an instructor has brought a joy and love to my life that can only be explained by the love of Jesus.
John 3:16 Ministries has a body shop on the grounds where the residents fellowship with their brothers and work on refurbishing donated vehicles. The vehicles are then auctioned off at fundraisers held by the ministry throughout the year. The body shop is equipped with a paint booth, detail shop, and a weld and fabrication area with a plasma cutter, TIG welder, MIG welder, and a ARC welder. If you have any questions or are interested in donating a tractor, boat, ATV, trailer, car, or truck that can be repaired and restored, please call Todd Pierson, instructor over the body shop, at 870-799-1515, 870-307-2415. To see the latest cars we are working on or whats going on today at the body shop check out the body shops facebook.com/john316ministriesbodyshop for videos and more. We appreciate everyone who donates their vehichles and all the men past, current, and future who have given and will give their life and to Jesus and their time in helping further his kingdom here at John 3:16.
“I believe with all of my heart that ultimately the body shop is a place created for men because men love cars. The environment here is all about building relationships with people and bringing men closer to God,” said Todd Pierson. Body Shop Instructor
