John McDonald

John grew up in San Antonio and attended Wake Forest University in North Carolina. He spent the past 8 years serving churches and organization as a worship leader/musician and was recently called to serve as the Worship Pastor at the Park’s Midtown Parish. John and his wife Heidi, who were married in June of 2014, couldn’t be more excited to be a part of what God is doing in San Antonio, and at The Park.

Through music, John aims to develop and foster a culture of sacrificial, Christ-focused worship that would extend well beyond the walls of Mark Twain Middle School and spread into the many communities that make up San Antonio. 

 He plays in a folk rock band with some of his best friends, called Friendly Savages. John has three ridiculous dogs and an equally ridiculous wife, Heidi, and the four of us have a ton of fun together. John is a self-proclaimed nerd and really enjoys all kinds of games and nerdy movies. John works full-time for WellAware, a technology start-up in San Antonio and Heidi is attending medical school (prayers are welcome!).
