About

John Rataczak was born in Columbia, Missouri and raised in the St. Louis area.  He was saved at an early age through the ministry of the Chatham Bible Church of Wellston, Missouri (now located in Hazelwood, Missouri).

His father was a chemical engineer and his mother was a housewife.  Both were saved during  John’s early childhood years.  Certainly the truth of Acts 16:31 applies in this case: in a short time all the members of the family received Christ as Savior!  Both Ed and Mary (his parents) are now with the Lord.

God led John to become involved in full time Christian work during his freshman year at Bob Jones University.  Since that calling, he has earned a B.A. in Bible, an M.A. in Pastoral Studies, and a Ph.D. in New Testament Text (Greek).

His teaching  experience includes teaching Greek, Hebrew, Theology, Apologetics, Church History, English Bible, and various Biblical Backgrounds courses in three Christian colleges and two graduate schools.  In addition, he served as a soccer coach in two ministries.

His pastoral experience includes ministries in Pennsylvania and Ohio.  He has filled the pulpit of many Bible-believing churches in a number of states as well and plans to initiate a Bible Conference ministry as God supplies the opportunity.

Presently he is the founder and sole proprietor of Eleutheros Books.

He is the father of two sons and resides in Ohio.

Of course his main interest is to study the Word and win the lost to Christ, but he also has interests in sports and current events.
