About John Boruff

John Boruff is the founder of WesleyGospel.com, a husband, father, and sometimes an open air preacher. He graduated from UNC Pembroke in 2008 with a B.A. in Philosophy and Religion and views himself as a Baptistic Pentecostal. As a Christian, he feels connected with all members of the body of Christ, but can identify the most with churches like the Assemblies of God and the Vineyard. In 2015, he released "The Gospel of Jesus Christ," which is meant to be a Bible study for open air preaching. For his other writings, search articles on this site or see the E-Books section.

  1. Hey brother,

    I’ve been enjoying some of your video blogs and written blogs. I can tell you have a heart for the Lord and are seeking His truth. I understand your frustration at the church. I have been a Lutheran for over 35 years. I am charismatic in the Biblical sense. I don’t stress the signs and wonders as much as I do the boldness and love of God for a sinful world. I am not your average Lutheran, however, because I consider myself to be a Spirit filled believer. Many Lutherans don’t even know what that is. I have attended Calvary Chapel and Vineyard in California while getting my degree in Evangelism. I am also a Biblical Language major, but after many disappointments, I now work as a Registered Nurse where I find the opportunity to share my faith as I care for people. Lately, my friend asked me about a street preacher named Todd White. In my studies I have recently uncovered 30 years of abuse by many “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” I feel for the sheep that are at the mercy of these wolves. I have always based my beliefs (to the best of my ability) on the Word of God, but these people are being “tossed to and fro by every wind and wave.” They are led more by their dreams and visions than the Word of God. I would like to talk to you more, because it seems you are very knowledgeable about different churches. I would really like to know how you feel about the state of the church today. I am not feeling very encouraged. I keep thinking of Jesus’ statement: “When the Son of Man returns, will He find faith on the earth?” I think we’re close to the end, I really do. If you would like to email me – jcunningham@me.com or you can look me up on Facebook. Do you have a Facebook account?

    Thanks,
    In Christ,
    Jeff

      Hi Jeff – feel free to continue dialogue with me via johnboruff146@gmail.com – I don’t do Facebook for privacy reasons. My overall view of the “Church” or the body of Christ as of 2017 is that the United States is in a state of “declension” – the opposite of evangelical revival. I think its been like this ever since the year 2000, when the Brownsville Revival ended. I still think there are isolated pockets of revivalism going on in different parts of the world, under the leadership of genuine men of God. One of the objectives of my “Ministries” page is to identify such ministries. Those of Andrew Strom in New Zealand, Ray Comfort in California, Mike Bickle in Missouri (IHOP, yes, they are practically the only popular charismatic church I like), and Michael Brown in North Carolina.
