John joined Search in March 2020. But his relationship with Jesus began in 1975 at a Young Life camp. John earned his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and his master’s degree from Fuller Seminary. John worked for Young Life from 1980 to 2020 in several capacities, most recently holding the position of Executive VP of U.S. Ministries. He and his wife, Carol, have three sons who followed in their dad’s footsteps and “married up,” as well as four grandchildren. John loves to golf, fish, and hunt, and is incredibly humbled and honored to be a part of the Search staff.
