John James Info/Bio
For over 16 years John was the Lead Singer and Co-founder of one of the world’s most successful Christian bands, ‘THE NEWSBOYS’. As an Evangelist, and speaker he now travels nationally and internationally powerfully speaking at churches, conferences, youth rallies and schools. John has had the privilege of ministering on some of the largest stages around the world in front of tens of thousands and has seen thousands of people make decisions for Christ through his ministry. He has been fortunate enough to have played an integral part of what has gone on to influence the local church at a national and international level to reach the NOW generation and this passion for young people has compelled him to become an extremely effective schools speaker.
This sharp insight into the level of influence, leadership, skills, attitudes, and goals needed to succeed has given John the credibility to speak with authority stirring the church at large as well as local church creative teams to product new levels of excellent and passion for EVANGELISM as they gear up for a great harvest!
BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE
Starting with humble beginnings in Australia, to performing at sell-out venues and shows of up to 750,000 at a single event around the globe, John has taken the Christian message to the world. While he was with the band, the Newsboys released ten albums, selling several million copies and achieving countless number one songs, Grammy nominations, God and Platinum records and national prime-time press coverage throughout North America. From this platform John inspired thousands not to be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ but to take the message on to the streets.
Leaving the band and returning to Australia in 1998, John’s life had become, as he describes “toxic”. His compelling story about the journey from ‘insignificance to success’ and then ‘brokenness to restoration’ is nothing short of miraculous and will be sure to challenge you to live life to the full. He now, continues to follow the irrevocable call of God on his life, preaching an uncompromising message of Jesus Christ. As he travels throughout the nations John’s passion is to see the local church live uncompromisingly for God.
Refusing to simply offer the word of God to just another good suggestion, John uses it to see lives changed and people committed to purposes of God. His heart is to see lives activated with the call to build God’s kingdom and uses his testimony to reveal the undeniable love of Jesus.
