John de Jong was born in England but at the start of his musical career worked as a singer/songwriter in Europe, settling in France for a while where he played acoustic sets in clubs and bars, later moving to Holland where for two years he toured Europe with an international band associated with Youth for Christ.
John graduated in Physics with Musical Acoustics from the University of Surrey in 1981 and for many years was involved in professional audio in manufacturing, design, and studio engineering while continuing to work as a performing musician, worship leader and acoustic guitar specialist. He has been leading worship now for over twenty years, most recently at the Manchester Vineyard where he heads up the music ministry and runs the Creative Worship Centre a training centre for musicians.
His current work includes developing worship initiatives in the Czech Republic (and more recently, Russia) where he regularly tours and teaches, and, under the banner of the Manchester Vineyard, is recording a series of albums.
John lives near Manchester with his Dutch wife and three children.
Andy Green is 25 years old and lives in Manchester, England with his wife Wendy and little boy Toby. Andy began playing keyboards when he was 5 years old and now plays professionally in many different settings.
He attends the Manchester Vineyard church and has been involved in the worship team there for several years.
As a worship leader Andys goal is: for greater freedom to express our hearts to God in worship and to go deeper into God's presence and develop intimacy with the Father.
