John Eaccarino


I was born and raised in New York City.  After experiencing God’s love, mercy and the forgiveness that was made mine through my Lord Jesus Christ, I became very involved in urban church ministries and a church plant, where I served many years.  During this time, I was employed in Data Communications for a global news agency.  Answering God’s call on my life, I was given the opportunity to complete a Pastoral Internship at Gateway Church Long Island.   I then moved to San Antonio along with my beautiful wife, Amy, and wonderful daughter, Sarah, who is now marred to our great son-in-law, James.  We have served together at Vista Community Church, where I completed the Evangelical Free Church of America’s Gateway Theological Institute and received my ministerial license. 

My wife and I love hiking and getting out to the country, especially to do some star-gazing under the magnificent skies of Texas- Psalm 19:1, 2.  

 It is a great joy to serve and minister to the wonderful people of Castroville and the surrounding area.  We love the people of Vista, who have become a true family to us.
