Meet the "Coach"

Coach John
John Sciera, youth group leader, has had an extensive career working with young people, kindergarten through college.  John is a retired physical education teacher and taught in the Geneseo Central School District for over 30 years, mostly at the elementary level.  During that time he coached high school football and lacrosse, a good bit of that in the Livonia School District.  He is responsible for starting the lacrosse program at Livonia.  He also coached lacrosse for 11 years at SUNY Geneseo.   Currently John is the head lacrosse coach for the Livonia – Avon Lakers and he is coaching with The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).

John loves the Lord and loves sharing his faith with young people, especially through interaction in sports and life in general.
