President of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
John Stonestreet's passion, as president of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, is to illuminate a biblical worldview for today's culture. He's a speaker, writer, cultural commentator, and collaborator of worldview initiatives. John directs conferences and curriculum projects, speaks to groups nationally and internationally, consults on worldview education for schools and churches, and appears frequently on web and radio broadcasts.
John is the co-host with Eric Metaxas of Breakpoint Radio, the Christian worldview radio program founded by the late Chuck Colson. He is also co-host of BreakPoint This Week with Ed Stetzer, and the voice of the Point, a daily national radio feature on worldview, apologetics and cultural issues.
John has worked in various capacities with Summit Ministries since 1999, including executive director, overseeing the various aspects of the ministry to accomplish its mission of cultivating rising generations to resolutely champion a Biblical worldview.
In 2011, John joined the team at BreakPoint. This shared appointment is to personify and catalyze the vision of BreakPoint to build and resource a movement of Christians committed to living and defending Christian worldview. When Chuck Colson fell ill in March of 2012, John was asked to fill in, along with Eric Metaxas, as co-host of BreakPoint until Chuck recovered. Upon Chuck's death, John and Eric became the nationally syndicated show's permanent voices.
Prior to working with Summit and BreakPoint, John was on the teaching faculty of Bryan College where he helped to develop a Christian worldview sequence for the core curriculum, as well as several non-traditional educational opportunities. He also directed the Bryan College Worldview Team, an innovative educational initiative designed to teach students to analyze worldviews using the lens of popular media and culture.
John holds a master of arts in Christian thought from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (IL) where he graduated with honors. He is co-author of Restoring All Things: God's Audacious Plan to Change the World through Ordinary People (with Warren Cole Smith, 2015), of Same-Sex Marriage: A Thoughtful Approach to God's Design for Marriage (with Sean McDowell, 2014), and Making Sense of Your World: A Biblical Worldview (with W. Gary Phillips and William E. Brown, 2008).
John and his wife Sarah were married in 2002. They and their three daughters live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
