I am just a dude… a dude who happens to be the most grateful husband imaginable to Laura, the most grateful daddy on the planet to Sadie, and who is eternally grateful every day for a grace that keeps pursuing me, helping me recover from the Pharisee I have been.

It should be noted that I am NOT the same John Driver who is a Mennonite theologian and author… you will find us both when you search online.

That John Driver seems way smarter than me.

But regardless of not being as smart as that other John Driver, this John Driver does get to live messy life every day with other broken-being-made-whole people just like me… as it turns out, living an authentic life with real people where you don’t have to hide was actually Jesus’s plan the whole time of changing my life into something I spent years trying to become through being a do-gooder and a try-harder. Who knew?

Not me, but I’m learning.

Oh, and I get to write some too.

You’re not going to believe this, but an actual publisher gave in to my demands and agreed to let real people like you read my very own satirical book entitled The Ultimate Survival Guide For the Avid Indoorsman (Harvest House). Yeah, the title pretty much says it all.

It’s fun, whole fun, and nothing but fun… until your bathroom you depart.

I also get to write with a some incredibly talented friends as their co-author or collaborative writer. When you see a book that has an author’s name followed by a “with” and some other dude’s name you’ve never heard of… yeah, I’m that other dude you’ve never heard of. And I love it.  Here are a few of my friends and their books you should check out.

Writing this in first person would have felt weird, so I didn’t… even though John rarely writes about himself in third person. 

John earned a B.A. in History and a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where he was a Whittle Scholar. He then worked as a secondary educator for several years, teaching history and math to high school and middle school students before transitioning into full-time ministry and writing. He currently serves as the Executive & Teaching Pastor at The Church At Pleasant Grove in Mount Juliet, Tennessee near Nashville, where he serves daily in numerous writing, discipleship, and speaking endeavors.
