Win People to Jesus Christ — Disciple Them in Faith — Help Those in Need
Pastor of Missions
The children in Mexico call him “Juan, el guapo.” The young missionary introduced himself as “John, the handsome” as a little joke intended to break the ice, but the name stuck. John Hull’s life of poverty and service in that poor community was a far cry from his earlier days. As a young man, John was living the American dream. He had an MBA, a successful career, and the respect and admiration of his peers. He was completely self-sufficient… or so he thought. A series of tragedies taught him otherwise. He needed God; he needed Christ. He surrendered everything and found a calling he could never have foreseen—a heart for the poor and suffering and a compassion for the lost. He traded the trappings of success for the humble life of a servant. And it is in the serving of the least of these that he feels closest to God and the most empowered by him.
As missions pastor, John shares with the church Christ’s heart for the world. He provides direction so that the church can take Christ, and be Christ, to those who need Him, around the corner and around the world. He came to know members of The Woodlands UMC when teams came to serve with him in Mexico. “I saw a love for God that was strong and deeply committed,” he said. He joined the church full-time upon completing his doctoral degree at Asbury Seminary.
