John stepped down as president of Citygate Network on July 31, 2023, having held the position for more than 16 years. He came to Citygate Network from Christian Camp and Conference Association, where he worked for 15 years in the COO role. The combination of those two positions has given him a career of more than 30 years in association management. John holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Bible, with a social work emphasis, and a Master of Organizational Management. He is the author of Invisible Neighbors, considered by many to be the “how-to manual” for followers of Jesus who are serious about meaningful engagement with the poor. He is also on the board of the National Association of Evangelicals. He and his wife, Judi, enjoy tennis and overnight hikes in remote, mountainous regions. Thanks to their three married children, they now have an array of amazing grandchildren.
