About John Snyder
Fort Bragg, North Carolina is the most populated post in the Army. It is home to Army Special Operations and the 82nd Airborne Division. The best of the best serve there and are often the first to deploy around the world.
John Snyder lived that life. Now he is on post everyday as a Navigator, sharing the Gospel with soldiers and helping them walk boldly with Christ. He also talks with many soldiers who are deployed. “It is a joy to coach so many missionaries in camouflage,” John beams. These men are guiding their fellow soldiers to Christ, leading Bible studies, and even reaching their Muslim interpreters with the Gospel! John truly has a global vision to invest deeply in those who will then guide others in their faith, across the Army and into the world.
John’s wife, Jessica, is a superstar partner in ministry. Having grown up as a military dependent, she knows what military life demands. She invests in her five children as her priority, and also oversees the women’s ministry on post. Her leadership has helped this diverse group –military spouses, single female soldiers, and civilian supporters – to bond and flourish together. She joins John in a passion to see men and women living for Jesus and sharing the Gospel wherever they go.
John & Jessica have had a remarkable impact. Over a one-year period, they helped send out over a dozen couples and individuals as disciple-makers in a variety of roles: serving in the Army, teaching summer camp, practicing medicine, learning to fly, and going to college. Their training as disciples at Fort Bragg prepared them to help others grow in the grace and love of Christ.
