 John QuinlanPrior to becoming a Good News Jail & Prison Ministry Chaplain in June 2014, John served as a volunteer at Martinsville City Jail Annex (City Farm) and Henry County Jail beginning in 1994. He came to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ in 1978 at the age of 26, after experiencing life without Christ and without hope.

Since coming to faith in Christ, he has been involved in various Christian ministries. Sensing the Lord’s call to ministry, he completed Bible school training while working as a full-time carpenter to support his family.

John currently serves as Chaplain of J-27 which includes Henry County Jail, Martinsville city Jail, Martinsville City Jail Annex (City Farm), and Patrick Henry Correctional Unit (Camp 28). All are located in Martinsville and Henry County, VA.

He and his dear wife Trudy live in Bassett, VA. They have been blessed with two grown children and three grandsons.
