John Connell - VP of Marketing
As VP of Marketing, John is responsible for protecting the integrity of the brand that many individuals have worked at developing since Bryan founded MOI. As well as being responsible for ensuring that all channels of communication and representation supports the mission and vision of the organization.
“In C.S. Lewis’s quote from The Abolition of Man, he states – “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst…”. His intent was to say that we produce men with no heart, purpose, or fortitude, yet expect the opposite. I believe MOI exists for this purpose, through the speaking into a protégé by a more disciplined form of a man who’s developed that heart. It’s why I’m honored to join the ranks of this organization to perpetuate that mission.”
John spent the past 7+ years working with ministries around the world, bringing exceptional technology solutions to help enhance their local ministry. Prior to that, he held various sales, marketing and general executive roles within Saas technologies for government agencies and healthcare, food manufacturing company and animal retail manufacturing.
John and his wife Laura, of over 16 years, reside in Lancaster, PA and attend Lancaster Alliance Church. They have two incredible kids – Reagan (12) and Noah (10) – that keep them busy in all aspects of the arts, and the sport of the season. John enjoys feeding his creative outlet through woodworking, restoring vehicles and simply finding ways to meet his family where their hobbies lie and getting engaged.
