MFV Leadership: Staff & Coordinators

John Hall


John Hall, Executive Director

John Hall became the Executive Director of Missions Fest Vancouver in April 2014. John comes to Missions Fest with a varied background which ranges from hands-on activities like being a professional guide in the whitewater industry to the more cerebral, which involved a graduate degree in theology from Regent College.

John and his wife have been in Metro Vancouver since 1995.  They attend The Tapestry Church in Richmond BC.  They have always been interested in mission, whether it be in the local church or overseas.  In 2004 their family travelled to Mozambique to serve  in an orphanage on a short-term trip.  This experience deeply impacted them and stirred up their heart for “the widow and the orphan”.  It was, and is, their intention to live a life of service to Jesus.  John notes that Missions Fest is a fantastic ministry for him to be involved in because it brings together amazing opportunities to inform, celebrate, and challenge a new generation to be involved in God’s mission.
