John Kerr


John and Ruth Kerr focus on leadership training for approximately 120 students. These students attend classes on the Kerrs’ 160-acre campus. However, the community surrounding the campus is home to roughly 500,000 people who live in very poor shanty-town neighborhoods. As a result, the students on campus have created many social-impact ministries and turned the property into a development center. They provide HIV-AIDS-awareness ministry, skills training, micro-financing, agriculture training, sewing classes and computer classes—all simply in an effort to bless and benefit the surrounding communities.

First Mission

The Kerrs’ first mission trip was a visit to Romania & Yugoslavia in 2001, before the Balkan war.

Becoming a Missionary

John and Ruth were both called into missions during their childhood, around the ages of 10-12.
