John is the co-founder and executive director of Compass 2819. He 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.
We've refined our field-tested training methods and resources 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.
