John Sainsbury met Jesus in his early 20s and it changed everything. After a 16-year career in banking, John went to London Bible College and left with a degree in Theology and a wife, Sue. He then spent 20 years in church leadership, including establishing and leading a Missional Community in the English lake District, before being called to work with Ellel Ministries. He is a passionate disciple who loves his Lord and His Word and longs for more of God. When not walking his dog, Poppy, John loves a good film, a good book and setting off on a new adventure!
