After five years’ with InterVarsity and two Urbanas, John finds great satisfaction being part of a 70-year legacy of people being called into God’s global mission, a legacy so big only God could sustain it. He attended Urbana 76 and felt called not to go but to stay. He spent the next 30 years being a missionary in the corporate world until being called to InterVarsity. Beyond his work with Urbana, he also spends time serving InterVarsity New England. He currently lives in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
