Academic Dean/Instructor

John is a passionate follower of Jesus who wants to take every opportunity to share what God has given to him. He wants to be a part of raising up the next generation of church leaders by joining the team at NBC. He comes from a background of medicine (his areas of interest are ER work and obstetrics), medical leadership positions (most recently the associate zone medical director for part of northern Alberta, and chief of staff of a local hospital), and teaching at 4 Bible colleges. He and his delightful bride of 30 years, Audrey, have 17 head of cattle and a small farm which they use to provide much of their own food. He loves to preach in local churches, hunt and fish, and travel (they have taken several mission trips, been to Israel twice, and visited most of the US and Canada). He looks forward to diving into life at NBC and seeing God work mightily.
