John has been married to his beautiful wife Peggy since 1992. Together they raised Jacob, Lincoln and Elijah who now do ministry alongside them. They also have a loyal shepherd, Eddie. He is a good dog, and is popular with all visitors to the Katsion’s home. Each member of the family even has a special role at BHBP.


John was born in Omaha Nebraska, and then grew up as a missionary kid in Jamaica and England. After high school John moved back to the United Sates to attend Pillsbury Baptist Bible College. He met Peggy there! John continued his education while they grew their family, and eventually became Dr. K!

John enjoys watching movies and playing video games with his sons, golfing and following the Chicago Bears. He is an active member of Laura Street Baptist Church where he works in the youth ministry and leads a Sunday School Class for young marrieds and professionals.

Monday thru Friday you will find John teaching communication classes at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. He has been teaching in higher education for almost 30 years.

“I do enjoy teaching and I especially love teaching the Bible and anything to do with communication. If I can combine those two, that is even better. I like to spend my summers speaking at camps and making the Bible come alive for kids and adults alike.”
