Introducing Our New Ministry President

Dear friends and supporters,

On behalf of the International Needs USA Board of Directors, I am very pleased to announce that Jeffrey Johnson has accepted our board’s offer to become the President of International Needs USA, effective June 11, 2018.

Jeff began his career in healthcare administration, which later led to 17 years of international Christian ministry, including serving as the Director of Community Health for World Hope International. Jeff is presently serving as the Executive Director for Hope for Grieving Children – Africa. During this time, he and his family worked in multiple countries and lived for extended periods of time in both Mozambique and Zambia.

In multiple discussions, it was increasingly apparent that Jeff shares our desire to build partnerships among Christians to do ministry together and bring about the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Jeff and his wife Danette live in Holland, Michigan and have four adult children. Their passion for the Lord and for fellow Christians around the world is apparent. We are excited that they are joining us in ministry and I look forward to you meeting them personally.

Please join me in welcoming Jeff to International Needs. We look forward to serving the Lord and building important relationships around the world for years to come.


Mark Bleyer
Chairman, International Needs USA Board
