John Key is the pastor at Maple Run Friends Church in Marion, IN. He has served and shared the love of Christ with this church since 1999. Working with CSI Ministries is one of the experiences that sparked his interest in ministry as a pastor.
Before John worked in ministry, he and his wife, Laura, served as house parents at a residential facility for juvenile delinquent kids. The house parents across the street introduced the Keys to CSI Ministries by sharing an opportunity to go on a short-term mission. After that trip, John and Laura realized their lives were forever changed. They felt God calling them to the ministry and dedicated seven years of their lives as full-time missionaries serving through CSI Ministries in Jamaica. After those seven years John served CSI Ministries in Muncie for two years.
John earned his bachelor’s and master’s in Agriculture from Purdue University. He later earned master’s in religion and master’s in divinity degrees from Liberty University.
John and Laura live in Marion and have two adult children. In John’s free time he enjoys reading, spending time in nature and golf.
