He earned his undergraduate degree from Baylor University and earned his M.Div. and Ph.D. at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was while he was earning his Ph.D. at Southwestern that he learned about spiritual awakening and revival. He has a deep love and compassion for people and believes that the only hope for our nation is to experience a mighty movement of God.

John is committed to communicating God’s Word so that others may know how to say “Yes to God.”  His heart is for individuals and the church to experience a mighty move of God in revival and spiritual awakening.

John has pastored churches in TX, GA, LA, and TN. He has also served as Vice President of Evangelism and Spiritual Awakening at the North American Mission Board. He has authored four books: The Passion Promise, Authentic Power, If God Were Real and co-authored Revival Revived.   His most recent book he co-authored with his wife, Donna:  Yes Changes Everything.  Currently, John serves as President of Life Action.
