John Dunnett – General Director

John DunnettAs general director of a mission agency focusing on Christian leadership development, it's pleasing to say that John Dunnett has indeed 'done it'.

That is, he's done the reality of leadership development – living his passion for nurturing others as part of his 18 years in parish ministry (including 13 years as incumbent as St Luke's, Cranham in Chelmsford diocese), before joining CPAS in 2006.

His love of coffee is what gets him started in the mornings, preferably with a doughnut on the side. He's even managed to work his favourite foodstuff into the CPAS strategy, with a doughnut used to illustrate the seven bite-sized leadership competencies which effective leaders pursue. But this is no ring doughnut. The centre is packed full with a desire to share the good news of Jesus, providing the doughnut with both its essence and substance.

Away from CPAS, John is a regular contributor at New Wine and Diocesan Evangelical Fellowships, and has been a member of General Synod since 2005. On a more frequent basis, he makes an equally valued contribution to Upminster Hockey Club's performances and as a husband to Liz and father to three children.

Having qualified as a biochemist, Graham spent two years working for a missionary society in Japan before training for ordination at St John's Nottingham.

He then served his curacy at St Matthew's Ipswich before planting churches in the Ipswich and Felixstowe areas for the next 14 years. He then moved on to become vicar of Highfield Church in Southampton for 13 years, before starting his role at CPAS in October 2012.
