As World Partners Director of Strategic Partnerships Dave Mann prepares for retirement in the summer of 2022, Joe Johns has joined the World Partners staff to begin the succession process. Joe will work in conjunction with Rick Dugan, Director of International Development, and Tami Swymeler, Director of Operations, just as Dave has done for the past four years.
Joe has a long history in the Missionary Church family, having grown up at Avalon Missionary Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He and his wife, Stephanie, have three sons: Joey, Jacob, and Jackson. Joe earned degrees in Bible and Christian Formation from Taylor University.
Both the incoming and the outgoing directors will attend the Missionary Church regional and district conferences throughout the United States in 2022 as part of the transition process. We invite you to reach out to meet and welcome Joe during this time of transition, and we look forward to seeing how the Lord chooses to work in and through him as he serves on the World Partners team!
