John Vawter: I have degrees from the University of Oregon, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Bethel Seminary. After 10 years of ministry with Campus Crusade (including 3 years as the Northwest Area Director) I entered pastoral ministry. My senior pastorates were in the suburbs of Minneapolis where we grew from 200 to 1000 and Tempe, AZ where we served 2000 people. Along my journey I also have had the privilege of serving as president of both Western Seminary and Phoenix Seminary. My wife and I reside in Scottsdale, AZ. In 1999 I formed You’re Not Alone, Inc. to help pastors and Christian workers whose kids abuse alcohol and other drugs. We now have a daily radio program that is heard on over 390 stations and a website that is proving to be very helpful to the 20,000 visitors a year. Recently, these resources were given to Lighthouse Network and can be accessed at www.lighthousenetwork.org . I have had the privilege of consulting churches as well as serving as Strategic Interim Senior Pastor at eight churches ranging in size from 200 to 2500.
