John Cortines

Chief Operating Officer

John serves as COO, with responsibility for Generous Giving’s internal strategy and operations in sharing the biblical message of generosity. John also works to reach a new generation with biblical generosity through our Emerging Leaders initiatives. A native of Texas, John began his career as a Petroleum Engineer, spending time everywhere from the sand dunes of Saudi Arabia, to the offshore platforms of the Gulf of Mexico. While studying at Harvard Business School, John began a journey of discovery on the intersection of faith and wealth which culminated in a decision to leave behind a lucrative post-MBA job to work, speak, and write full-time on generosity (his book God and Money, co-authored with Greg Baumer, is out now).

John's greatest blessing in life comes from being married to his beautiful and gracious wife, Megan, and sharing in the joy of their three young children, Jack, Anna, and Lydia. John holds degrees from Harvard Business School (MBA, 2015), King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia (MS Earth Science, 2011), and Texas A&M University (BS Chemical Engineering, 2010).
