John Cortines is chief operating officer at Generous Giving, with responsibility for internal strategy and operations in sharing the biblical message of generosity. A native of Texas, John began his career as a petroleum engineer, spending time everywhere from the sand dunes of Saudi Arabia to the offshore platforms of the Gulf of Mexico. While studying at Harvard Business School, he began a journey of discovery on the intersection of faith and wealth, which culminated in a decision to leave behind a lucrative post-MBA job to work, speak, and write full-time on generosity. His most recent book is "True Riches: What Jesus Really Said About Money and Your Heart," while his first book is "God and Money." Greg Baumer is the co-author of both books.
John's greatest blessing in life comes from being married to his beautiful and gracious wife, Megan, and sharing in the joy of their three young children, Jack, Anna, and Lydia. John is a graduate of Harvard Business School (MBA, 2015), King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia (MS, Earth Science, 2011), and Texas A&M University (BS, Chemical Engineering, 2010).
