John Press

BASIC JOB DESCRIPTION
I manage ASAP's annual project cycle, coordinating the solicitation and evaluation of proposals and consulting on special projects. In addition, I lead ASAP's communications and marketing efforts, including the production of all printed and electronic content and the planning and implementation of fundraising campaigns.

SCHOOLING
I have a Bachelor’s degree in History from Walla Walla University and a Master of Science in Community & International Development from Andrews University.

HOW YOU WERE ORIGINALLY CONNECTED TO ASAP
While earning my master's degree at Andrews University, I learned about ASAP's work with refugees, which led me to begin volunteering there in June 2017.

WHEN YOU STARTED WORKING WITH ASAP
After volunteering for several months, I officially started working for ASAP in October 2017.

FAVORITE ASAP PROJECT
It's difficult to choose just one. I love ASAP's whole-person approach to ministry. From our health outreach centers in Myanmar to ASAP schools for at-risk children in Cambodia and humanitarian assistance for refugees and the persecuted across Southeast Asia, it is a joy to see hope restored and lives transformed. 

WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK
Outside of work, I enjoy camping, gardening, hiking, traveling, and spending time with family.

YOUR FAVORITE BIBLE TEXT
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10).
