John S. OldfieldJohn Oldfield, a graduate of the College of Wooster and Denver Seminary, was a pastor for over forty-one years--in rural, urban, and suburban communities. He and his wife Dagmar planted Yorktowne Chapel in center-city York, Pennsylvania "from scratch" and pastored it for twenty-eight years. With unusual transparency, he tells that story in his book, How to Empty a Church: The Manual. Due, in part, to the impact of the Passion of Jesus Christ upon his own heart and life, he has also written Prizing His Passion: Why the Death of Jesus Christ Should Matter to You . . . A Forty-Six-Day Journey. The producer of a weekly radio program for over twenty-six years and a police chaplain for twenty-five years, he likes biking, peppermint-stick ice cream, and TV cop shows. A widower, he has four children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandson. After eleven years in metro-Phoenix, Arizona, he resides again in York.
