Johnny Ova's Bio


Johnny Ova (Slionski) was born and raised in Long Island, NY. He was raised Italian catholic and for the most part always believed that there was a God. After the separation of his parents, things took a turn for the worse which eventually culminated in the death of his father in 2001 at the age of 44 years old. Johnny’s dad was an alcoholic which was the reason for the divorce and the death.

At 16 years old Johnny Ova began training to become what he always wanted to become and that was a professional wrestler. Eventually, Johnny would reach that goal and started to travel all over America, Canada, Jamaica, & even Mexico with the “Million Dollar Man’ Ted Dibiase and his good friend, Bobby Riedel, doing what he loved to do. It was during that time at the age of 17 that he gave his life to the Lord.

Johnny Ova met the love of his life, Rachel, while ministering at her church in Long Island. When the two met it was something special but when the two minister it became something even bigger. Johnny & Rachel planted a church in Deer Park, NY where the 2 would begin to train and equip the body to do extraordinary things for God. Not only do they believe that change is coming to the church but even to the region of New York. Johnny & Rachel have a heart for the nations with churches located across the world. They also have 4 beautiful children Johnny, Zoë, Massimo and Lucy. Learn more about the vision of Sound of Heaven.
