About John

John’s curiosity with religion began while attending Concordia Lutheran High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. His career in the field of refrigeration compressors garnered him a variety of executive-level jobs and much international travel, allowing him the opportunity to expand his knowledge of the world’s religions.
