John Chaffee grew up on the dunes and beach culture of Long Beach Island, New Jersey with great parents, Ron and Marty, and a younger brother, Steve.  Straight through high school he was an active member of his home church and youth group which eventually led John to go to Eastern University, a Christian university where he majored in Biblical Studies.  While at Eastern University, John served as a hall chaplain for three years and got his first taste of putting to good use the things he was learning in his bible and theology classes.

After graduating, he spent a year working for his home church during their time between finding a new full time pastor while beginning his seminary education.  He has been active for the past five years in camping ministry in south Jersey and has, as a result, a special place in his heart for youth ministry.  He is currently finishing up his masters of Divinity from Palmer Seminary with plans of further education somewhere down the line.

But until then, he loves spending his time skating, skimboarding, playing music, going camping (the real kind of camping), reading too much, and other general adventures.  If you get a chance, feel free to sit down with him and swap some good stories!
