John L. Owens grew up in Coastal Florida, (a beach bum) life-guarding and trimming palm trees for spending money. Graduating from FSU, he began his career in business with Procter & Gamble and served with the U.S. Coast Guard, involved in rescues and smuggling deterrence in the North Atlantic. Later, he was hired as a writer by a creative agency on St. Simons Island, and then started his own, publishing Challenge in Business magazine for business leaders – a Christian outreach following his spiritual conversion in “74. He went on to earn an MDiv at Luther Rice Seminary and became active in evangelism.
In 1992, with the opening of the Soviet Union to Christian missions, John and his family departed to the former USSR, helping to equip nationals for ministry, serving as Academic Dean of the first “above-ground” Bible school.
After three years, the training had become nationalized and John returned from Moscow with his family to Coastal Georgia. He has served as a pastor, as well as a science teacher. He remains active in missionary work and serves as a volunteer chaplain to truck drivers with Transport for Christ. John’s first novel was published in 2008 – The Ninth Generation.
