John’s greatest passion is seeing people transformed by the Gospel and mobilized to make disciples. John spent nearly 12 years in the US Army as a Scout and Career Counselor, and later as a Commissioned Officer. John is a combat-wounded veteran and Purple Heart recipient whose service took him to Fort Knox, KY; Savannah, GA; Columbia, SC; Seattle, WA; Iraq; Kuwait; Qatar; and South Korea. Through the Army, John learned how to recruit and build teams, how to develop vision, strategic leadership, logistics, and leadership development. Above all, his military service taught him to trust God, and leave all the consequences to Him.
In 2014, John began serving as a College and Student Pastor. He also became an Adjunct Professor at Belhaven University and assumed the role as Senior Director of Global Impact at the Agapao Movement, with a focus on training and equipping Global leaders in South Asia. In 2018, John and his family followed God a call to plant a multiethnic church, and began to serve as the Church Planter in Residence at Perimeter Church in Johns Creek, GA. John loves reading, backpacking, sports, and seeing the world.
