John Poitevent

Director of Facilitation Services

John has a passion to see the local church fulfilling all that it is called and created to be. For 25 years he has worked in a variety of ministry roles including missionary, counselor, pastor and consultant. His work outside of the Church includes extensive work with the homeless, addicts and alcoholics. Most notably, John served as the touring chaplain for the Christian band Third Day. Before joining the Parish Catalyst team he served as a director with Leadership Network, helping churches around the country plan strategically for their future.

“I truly believe that the Gospel expressed through the local church is the hope of the world. It is a joy to help Pastors and churches discover better ways to make disciples and reach their communities. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the innovative work of Parish Catalyst.”

In his free time you can find John enjoying the great outdoors. Whether it’s snow skiing, jet skiing, hiking, kayaking, golfing or cycling, he loves nothing more than being out in nature and discovering new places.

John is a Cum Laude, Outstanding Graduate of the MacArthur School of Leadership at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
