John Bankosky, 2017 chair, began serving Love INC in 2013 as an intercessory prayer volunteer. He joined the Love INC of Brevard Church Mobilization Group later that year and became the lead of Love INC’s Liaison Team on which he still serves. His membership on the board began in October 2014, and he now serves as chairperson. Upon graduating from Muhlenberg College, Hartford Seminary, and being ordained, John worked as the Director of Social Work for the Greater Hartford Council of Churches in Connecticut for two years before he entered the pastorate. After 42 years of pastoring churches in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Florida, John resigned from formal pastorate to begin a wider ministry, traveling with his wife to many countries for several years proclaiming the gospel. John and his wife, Susan, now enjoy leading a small church in their home and hosting visits from family and friends.
