John Gunter
Director of Missions

John was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, graduated from Georgia Tech, and then worked for four years simultaneously with Cru and as the College Director at ChristChurch Presbyterian. From there, John moved to Asia, where he lived and served for 15 years until the end of 2014. While there, he held several roles in leadership as part of a ministry which established churches, campus ministries, and community engagement across the region.

In 2014, John moved to Los Angeles, California, where he was the Executive Director of Pacific Crossroads Church. He joined the staff of Atlanta Westside as the part-time Chief Strategist in September 2018, while he continues serving several churches in Los Angeles in various stages of church planting. In the mist of this, John is STILL working to complete a degree at Reformed Theological Seminary. He is quietly attempting to set the world record for longest running seminary student of all time.

Besides studying, John likes sports of all sorts and is a lifetime fan of all things related to Atlanta sports. Little known fact: his first official job in high school was being an usher for the Atlanta Braves.
