JT is founder and president of Rep Services, a statewide firm known among park professionals and landscape architects as the experts and play and outdoor spaces. JT's calling is to follow Jesus and to encourage others to follow Him also. Doing this in the crush of the marketplace is a daily adventure in faith. In 1975, equipped with an economics degree from Eckerd College, JT sought employment and opportunity in Orlando and was encountered by Jesus along the way. That led to intensive training in a Navigator community ministry based at Asbury Church in Maitland. Asbury's assistant pastor introduced JT to Northland, and JT eventually started up a singles ministry that ran for many years. He and his wife, LeDonna, married in 1979, and together they have served Northland in a variety of ways, most recently with Global Media Outreach and as Marriage Prep mentors.
