He is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Samford University. John’s research, pastoral care and educational focus has been on training pastors and CPE students in the art of providing appropriate care to individuals who have experienced a traumatic event. He is widely recognized as the National Veteran Affairs subject matter expert in this area. John’s personal interest in trauma stems from both his having been raised in Cali, Colombia during some particularly turbulent years and his on-going pastoral care to Veterans.
