In his role as a C12 Chair for the Little Rock area, John is looking forward to taking what he has learned in life, faith, family and business to help others flourish in their lives and businesses. John is passionate about encouraging others to find margin in their lives in order to be more present and effective at work and at home. John spent 25 years in the Dry-Cleaning industry, owning and operating several franchises and independent businesses. He grew these businesses to volumes two to three times the national average. He helped three of his managers own and operate their own businesses. Two of these individuals have owned the same business for over 20 years. John has also been involved in the building and development of several other startup businesses. Some of these ventures were great successes and a few were opportunities to trust God and learn an expensive lesson. Through all of this, it has become abundantly clear, we make our plans, but the Lord decides where we will go. In this season of his life, John wants Christian businessmen and women to fully realize God has an eternal plan for their lives and that plan includes their business. John and his wife Cara have been married for 29 years. They are the proud parents of three adult children who love the Lord and are successfully navigating life. They are also the proud grandparents of four wonderful and very active grandchildren. John and Cara are active in the church they have attended for the past 21 years. John has served on the elder board since 2019.
