John Larkam is founding and senior pastor of Impact Family Church in Austin, Texas. An Austin native, John obtained his BA from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California and was a top national producer for Transamerica Life Companies before following his call into ministry.

John developed a heart for God at a young age when his Dad led him to the Lord.  He later developed an insatiable hunger for God during a powerful, life-changing  experience in church on January 19, 1986, in which he wholeheartedly surrendered his life to Jesus, received the baptism with the Holy Spirit, and met Alison, who is the love of his life.

Alison is a graduate of San Diego State University with a BS in Nursing, and is a certified Registered Nurse in California and Texas.  Together, they received extensive ministerial training in Texas and California, where they graduated from bible school and were ordained into the ministry.

John and Alison both share a deep passion for seeing people come to Christ and grow in their relationship with God, living out His full plan and purpose for their lives.

They have been married since November 1987 and have two beautiful daughters, Catherine and Stephanie.  They spend their free time together outdoors with their family and black lab, Westin.
