John B. Hymon was raised in the Baptist Church and later joined The Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ on September 1, 1991. Called to ministry at age 12 after receiving a prophetic word from Dr. W.L. Templeton during a visit to the Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church but did not accept his call to the preaching ministry until 1994, obtaining his fellowship papers with the Northwestern District Council (Now known as the Heart of America Council of Churches, HACC) and in 2002 became a licensed minister in the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. Pastor Hymon completed the Aenon Bible Course and was ordained as pastor in June 2013. Pastor Hymon served nearly 22 years under the leadership of Suffragan Bishop Aletha J. Cushinberry of the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ before launching Raptuready Ministries July, 2013 (www.raptuready.org).
January 12, 2013, Johnnetta M. Brown-Hymon, John’s wife of nearly 32 years, finished her lengthy battle with cancer. The family continues to celebrate the gifts and joy of his union with Johnnetta through three amazing adult children - Johnnelle, Jennifur (Katie), and Jordan (Ashley), and grandchildren, Ahn’Zure (Johnnelle), Zarie (Jennifur & Katie), and our newest addition Zion (Jordan & Ashley).
