Learn how Compass' 5 signature ingredients make all the difference:
In this fun video podcast, John is interviewed by his son, Pastor Jason.
John - your Compass Instructor and Coach - is passionate about discipling those who disciple the world!
He and his wife, Penny, have been discipling people for over 40 years on several continents and in their own back yard (and kitchen)!
John has been on all sides of short-term missions - host, trip leader, and trainer.
In 2012, he co-founded the non-profit, Compass2819, to help others do short-term missions well, with discipleship at the center.
Since then, Compass has trained and led teams on successful missions trips on every continent except Antarctica.
The field-tested Compass training methods and resources have been refined down to the simple essentials that it takes to get excellent results.
Compass' signature training is now available in a convenient online and virtual format.
Compass' vision is to use this platform to serve even more disciple-makers and equip even more short-term missions trip leaders and teams than ever.
