The Diocese of Des Moines

John Huynh has lived in Des Moines since 1994, when he first arrived from Viet Nam.  Even though he has lived in Iowa a little over twenty years, he is still not acclimated to its wonderful weather pattern yet.  He remembers with fondness the Viet Nam days when lowest temperatures were mid 40s. 


John is an alumnus of Dowling Catholic High School - class of 2002 - as well as Loras College - class of 2007 and 2009.  


John holds a B.A. in Philosophy and an M.A. in Theology, with special focus in Fundamental Theology.  John is currently a Doctor of Ministry student at Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. 


Prior to being appointed as Director for Faith Journey, John held a post at Dowling Catholic High School as a theology instructor, teaching various courses in theology.


John, with his wife, Amy, and their three children in West Des Moines and are parishoners of St. Francis Catholic Church.
