JP Pokluda is the lead pastor of Harris Creek Baptist Church in Waco, Texas. He previously served as the leader of The Porch, a ministry which grew to be the largest weekly young adult gathering of its kind in the country. JP didn’t come to understand the grace of the gospel until his early twenties after being involved in several different denominational churches. This ignited a desire in him to inspire young adults to radically follow Jesus Christ, and unleash them to change the world. JP is the author of Welcome to Adulting, Welcoming the Future Church, Outdated, and Why Do I Do What I Don’t Want to Do? He is married to Monica, and they have three children.
