Profile photo for John Hall

John Hall became the Executive Director at Mission Central (formerly Missions Fest Vancouver) in 2014. In 1997 he, his wife and brother in-law started Eco Outdoor Sports in Metro Vancouver. In 2003 the business was sold, and his family entered a seven-year ‘desert experience’. During that time the Lord impressed on John and his family the importance of hearing and obeying Jesus every day, something that he tries to integrate into everything he does. In 2010 God changed the family’s direction and led him to finish his degree at Regent College in preparation for life as a full-time missionary overseas. Although that ministry opportunity didn’t develop as planned a whole new perspective and participation-in Christ’s mission was born at Missions Fest Vancouver. It’s now a daily occurrence for John’s business background and theological training get a workout.

John and his wife Wei live in Richmond, BC. They have two wonderful adult girls. John completed his MA at Regent College in 2010.

John Hall is available as a Mission Central Speaker.

“I love to talk about living in the presence of Jesus and bringing Christ’s transformational power to the world – in other words mission. In the last several years I have been writing and talking about the changes in the Canadian socio-cultural landscape and what they mean for the future of mission in and from the Canadian church. I feel that conversations about mission today need a vision for discipleship and a sober critique of ecclesiology. I am passionate about seeing every believer become a missional disciple, especially through networks that include individuals, churches, agencies, academy and the marketplace.”
