Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, John has been married to Maureen for 26 years, and they are both actively engaged in launching 3 children into adulthood. John is a high tech executive who has been blessed to work with and lead some of the hottest Canadian and International tech companies.
The Lord sent John to Africa in 2006 where his worldview was forever changed and his heart for service began. John now mentors 5 to 7 young execs, sits on 3 boards (including A Rocha), co-leads Alpha in his church, and serves as a senior instructor for the Junior Achievement Stay-in-School program. John believes that one’s relationship with Christ cannot be truly fulfilled until we can relate to all of God’s creation, including the Earth. He feels that A Rocha’s ‘creation care’ message is desperately needed both inside and outside the Christian community.
