This involves having the right attitude, developing skills, and making plans for protection from criminal violence.● ASP started in 2011 as John’s side hustle. It now has two channels with over 1.94 million subscribers in its main channel.●  Viewers can send real-life surveillance videos of defensive encounters and criminal activities.● John’s content ranges from after-action reports of real-life defensive encounters, teaching handgun skills, moral and legal self-defense, and much more.[06:14] John’s Journey to Becoming a Pastor● John grew up away from faith and was on track to becoming a naval officer. After moving to Oregon for a commissioning program, he realized he had to become a better person.● He formed relationships and developed an interest in reading the Bible when his wife started bringing him with her to Church. ● In a worship session, John realized that God loves him unconditionally. Whether or not John could be better, God will love him.● His life started changing from then on. After an accident, John chose to resign his commission and follow Jesus. ●John quit getting a paycheck from the Church on February 1, 2018, to focus on his self-defense business. John: “Okay, Lord. This isn't like a ‘make John better program’ where if I'm good enough, You'll love me. This isn’t a moral crusade. But this is a ‘You love me in the big pile of crap I am.’”[14:01] Facing Controversy● Carrying firearms and teaching self-defense can be controversial depending on the background of the Church. ● Some families in John’s church left because they didn’t think a pastor should carry a gun.● Most understood that the Church was only about the worship of Christ. In the event of danger, they knew that John would protect them with his expertise in self-defense.● As John’s social media presence grew, people disrupted the place of worship. ● John’s resignation as a senior pastor sparked a controversy that John chose worldly possessions. However, to John, he was simply following Jesus’ instructions.[18:20] John on Knowing His Calling● The decision to quit being a pastor was something John thought about for a long time. ● He was handling multiple things when he realized he stopped belonging in the ministry.● John’s journey involved a lot of prayer and multiple discussions with his mentors about his frustrations and his options.●  His wife also gave him counsel and passed the words of the Holy Spirit to him.[22:10] Reflections on God’s Purpose for His Change ● You can’t be a pastor to hundreds of people. Instead, you end up becoming a public speaker. ● To connect with people personally, John thinks pastors of local congregations should only handle around 50 or 60 people.● With ASP, John’s purpose wasn’t to be a shepherd but to teach self-defense, inform people, and build individual relationships and mentorships.● Despite the change in purpose, he was still able to have spiritual conversations about Jesus. ● John continues to encourage people to build their relationships with Him.[25:54] John on Influencing Others ● In his work, John gets to know many people. ● Whether or not they are followers of Christ, he builds strong relationships with them.● The ASP staff is Christ-centered. ● Like the apostle Paul, John enjoys being among those who don’t know Christ. He would rather spread his influence versus keeping it in a small circle.[27:52] John’s Journey as a Protector and Self Defense Teacher● John grew up around firearms and joined the Navy as a way to go to college without debt.● Once he joined the seminary, he learned how to be a good shepherd like David. David was a shepherd who was also a protector.● He started carrying firearms when working in retail management because other shops were getting robbed. He also took karate with his son for lessons on self-defense.● John admits that is a man of peace and would rather build good relationships. However, he is also ready to defend his boundaries.[31:24] The Call of the Defender● The Book of Proverbs talks about the reactions of the prudent and the fool in the face of danger.● John tries to teach people prudence.● Being prudent includes knowing when to escape, evade, and de-escalate. He teaches others to use force only when absolutely necessary for self-defense.● Like Jesus, John prefers peace but knows when to stand up for himself and others.John: “Jesus is a man of peace but he is also very strong and completely unwilling to let the oppressed and the marginalized not have their voices heard. I try to emulate him everywhere I go.”[34:06] John on Staying Humble● John recognizes that he is where he is because Jesus put him there.● He remembers that there are people behind him. Just like everyone else, John has work to do to contribute to their success.● John’s mentors taught him Jesus’ upside-down model of leadership. As a leader, he serves his people and his viewers.● Despite his confident nature, John’s wife is there to remind him when he is being too arrogant.● He tries to remember that his way is not the only way. Instead, he listens and explores ideas outside his comfort zone.[38:18] Using What You Have for God’s Work● You can have goals, such as making money and expanding your business and following. But you can also attribute these to setting a goal for God’s work.● John’s goal when the pandemic hit was to see how much money they could raise for the kingdom of God. John: “My tombstone is not gonna say, ‘He was famous on the YouTubes.’ If that's what it says, well, you failed. I just want to hear, ‘Well done. Good and faithful servant.’”[40:30] Accepting the Past ● There is no hope to wish for than a better past. Instead, John tries to live by Jesus and accept reality.● John and his family faced many difficulties, but they got past them successfully. God has used all these to give him wisdom and make him the person he is now. ● Choose to hug the cactus. In moments of hardships and pain, rejoice that God is present, and remember that Jesus was made perfect through suffering.[44:05] What’s Next For Active Self Protection● There have been some discussions with networks about TV shows.● John doesn’t know what is in the future for ASP. They will just keep improving what they’re doing.● He is stepping up as a nationally trusted adviser on the use of force and the realities of crime and self-defense. ● John hopes to keep training good people to protect themselves and their loved ones. ● He also wants ASP to be a voice that encourages talking through differences and spreading love.About JohnJohn Correia is the founder and owner of Active Self Protection, a company dedicated to teaching people how to defend themselves and their loved ones.
