For ten years previously, John held the position of ICC Wesley Foundation Campus Director. John believes strongly in the fullness of God being able to be expressed in people of all ages. Side note: John is the ultimate comic book nerd! Get him discussing anything to do with the Marvel Universe, and you might not ever get away.

Worship: Eddie Willis
Rev. Eddie Willis is the campus minister at the University of Mississippi. He and his wife, Allyson, who he met at Camp Lake Stephens, lead M28Camps each summer, which takes place at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Eddie loves engaging all ages in music and Word with the goal of all coming closer to Christ. Fun fact: Eddie is the pastor of Taylor UMC in Lafayette County, plays a Taylor guitar, and he does a mean James Taylor impersonation. He can also make some awesome sound effects! Eddie has four amazing kids: Selby, Clayton, Lydia, and Lauren.
