Mark your calendar for this special opportunity to hear British evangelist, minister, speaker, social activist and writer John Ioannou––much better known as Canon J.John––in person! John was born in London, and he now lives in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire, in England. He studied psychology at Hendon College in London. It was there he was introduced to Christianity by a friend, the Reverend Andy Economides. He studied theology at St. John’s Theological College, Nottingham, England. While there he worked at the Christian Renewal Centre in Northern Ireland, taking part in reconciliation work, including volunteering at a local prison.
Later, he became Director of Evangelism at St. Nicholas’ Church in Nottingham, England. While there he began his work as an itinerant evangelist, speaking at universities and churches across the country.
To date, he has completed many speaking engagements at conferences, towns, cities, and universities in 69 countries on 6 continents. John has written several books including just10, a contemporary application of God’s Ten Commandments, and The Natural Evangelism Course, a six-session course designed to equip and encourage the church in evangelism.
Now in his third decade of ministry, John shows no sign of slowing down, and his desire to see lives saved by the Good News only continues to increase, fueling his passion for his energetic flavor of evangelism. With an appeal that transcends gender, age, race, culture, and occupation, his much-loved art of storytelling helps people to discover spiritual meaning in a way that makes sense of everyday life. His topic at this lecture will be “Natural Evangelism:The Practice of Praying, Caring and Sharing.”
