John Patton

Chief Operations Officer, Center for Mission Mobilization

While he knew Christ from a young age, John’s college years at a small, liberal college set his life on a new trajectory thanks to the staff and student leaders of Student Mobilization. During these strategic years, a passion for disciple making, missions and mobilization were born. After graduating, John helped Steve Shadrach launch the Center for Mission Mobilization, which includes Campus Ministry Today (CMT) and Support Raising Solutions (SRS). As COO, John provides leadership to the headquarters of the ministry, but also spearheads the training and publication divisions of CMT and SRS. Serving as Steve Shadrach’s ‘operations guy’ since 2001, John has been a part of creating the books, resources, and ministry of Campus Ministry Today from the beginning. He is privileged to be the husband of Tisha, who has been doing campus ministry and raising support for even longer than he has. They have three sons and reside in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
