John Sowers grew up without a father, like millions of other children in America. But unlike many children, John had the benefit of faithful mentoring. Now John is telling everyone who will listen about the difference a mentor makes in the lives of the fatherless.
John has spoken at the White House. He also has spoken at Texas A&M, Auburn University, and Oklahoma Christian University; Story conference in Chicago, Catalyst conference, the Justice Conference, Storyline, and the Cove; and at Saddleback Church in Orange County, California; Rolling Hills in Portland, Oregon; and Life Church in Oklahoma City, to name just a few churches.
John was honored as a Champion of Change by the White House in 2012. He is President of the Mentoring Project, a movement that inspires and equips faith communities to rewrite the stories of fatherless youth through mentoring. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Fatherless Generation: Redeeming the Story (HarperCollins, 2010) and The Heroic Path: In Search of the Masculine Heart (Jericho Books, 2014).
John and the Mentoring Project have been featured on CNN, Maria Shriver/NBC, and Fox News and in Christianity Today and Relevant magazines.
