Born in London, John started stealing at the age of 13 following the divorce of his parents. At 15 he was put in detention and by 19, John eventually found himself in prison. Later John worked by bouncing at nightclubs which opened the door to drugs, sex and gang-related violence. After nearly killing someone outside a nightclub, John realised there was something missing in his life.
John has led retreats, conferences and seminars throughout the UK, Ireland, USA, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and various other countries in Europe and Asia.
In 2008, John spoke at World Youth Day in Sydney to over 400,000 young people and ever since his ministry has become more and more international.
