John Yeatts, National Coordinator

John has served in full-time ministry for over 30 years, more than half of those years in the role of a pastor to the local church. In 2004, God called John to join the team of Life Outreach as a National Representative, bringing his gift of pastoral care to the body of believers that reach out through the ministries of LIFE to a hurting world. Through prayer, counsel, preaching, and teaching, he has encouraged and admonished the Friends for LIFE community to LOVE in WORD and DEED! John earned a BA degree from Central Bible College, now known as Evangel University, majoring in Bible and Missions, with a minor in Evangelism. As the National Coordinator of Churches for LIFE, James and Betty have commissioned him to serve the pastors, ministers, and local congregations who have joined to help carry the burden of ministering to the world’s hurting. John and his staff will seek to find every possible way to bless the Churches for LIFE partnership. He is a husband of over 30 years and father of three children. John’s family were members of Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas for over 11 years before planting Texoma Bible Fellowship in Whitesboro, Texas in 2017.
