A Legacy of Faithfulness
John MacArthur is the chancellor emeritus of The Master’s Seminary and the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as an author, conference speaker, and featured teacher with Grace to You media ministry.
In 1969, after graduating from Talbot Theological Seminary, John came to Grace Community Church. The emphasis of his pulpit ministry is the careful study and verse-by-verse exposition of the Bible, with special attention devoted to the historical and grammatical background behind each passage.
John is also president and featured teacher with Grace to You. Founded in 1969, GTY is the nonprofit organization responsible for developing, producing, and distributing John's books, audio resources, and the "Grace to You" radio and television programs. All 3,000 of John's sermons, spanning more than four decades of ministry, are available for free on this website.
John and his wife, Patricia, live in Southern California and have four married children: Matt, Marcy, Mark, and Melinda. They also enjoy the enthusiastic company of their fifteen grandchildren.
